The 2020 Renault Kwid Climber has been spotted testing for the first time. In the images, the hatchback is heavily camouflaged and looks like it has been captured at a high altitude area which is the usual testing ground for new vehicles. Despite the camouflage, one can easily make out the design of the 2020 Renault Kwid.
The Kwid is an extremely important car for Renault. Renault became popular in the Indian market when it launched the Duster. However, its sales grew immensely only after the Kwid was launched. The Renault Kwid quickly became the best-seller in its segment.
It even challenged some of Maruti Suzuki's best-selling mass market cars like the Alto 800 and Alto K10, which is an impressive feat. However, the Kwid soon became old and people started losing interest in it. The slowdown in the automotive industry only added to Renault's woes.
The front end of the hatchback is heavily inspired by the Renault K-ZE on sale in the Chinese market. Well, the K-ZE is in essence an electric version of the Kwid, so it is fair to use the exact same design.
The front-end features a split headlamp design with LED DRLs on top and a halogen headlamp in the bumper. The rear features redesigned tail lamps with C-shaped LED inserts. The overall silhouette of the car though remains the same.
On the Climber variant, the bumper is more muscular and features orange accents. The interiors have also seen a major update. Taking centre-place in the dashboard is a new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit. The speedometer is the digital unit that has been borrowed from the Triber.
The materials used in the dashboard and the seats too are premium. Orange accents can be seen on the door panels, seats and centre console. It will be powered by a BS-VI compliant, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine with a maximum power output of 67bhp and a peak torque output of 91Nm.
The Kwid Climber is currently priced at Rs 4.55 lakh for the manual transmission and Rs 4.85 lakh for the AMT variant. We can expect a price hike for the new model thanks to the additional cost of developing BS-VI engines and the price of the new equipment in the 2020 model.
Thoughts On 2020 Renault Kwid Climber Being Spotted While Testing
Renault has its hopes riding on the 2020 Renault Kwid to pull it out of the slowdown in the automotive industry. The fact that the Climber variant has also been spotted much before its launch shows how ready Renault is to hit the Indian market with its new products.
There is no doubt that the 2020 Renault Kwid will come packed with features, but it all depends on how the company prices the new car.
