Here are a few digitally rendered images of upcoming Renault compact sedan, which is expected to hit our market in the next few years. It'll compete with the likes of Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze and Hyundai Aura.
Recent reports suggest that Renault is currently working on an all-new sub-4 meter sedan based on the popular Kwid hatchback. The upcoming compact sedan is codenamed as LBA and is expected to rub shoulders with the likes of Honda Amaze, Hyundai Aura, Ford Aspire and Maruti Dzire. Like the Kwid and Triber, the new sedan will be aggressively priced against its rivals. Currently, the French automaker is concentrating on launching the HBC sub4 meter SUV, which is expected to hit the Indian shores by the upcoming festive season, and will be named as Kiger. Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300.
The upcoming sub-4 meter sedan could hit the domestic market in the next one or two years and is expected to be priced between Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 9 lakh (ex-showroom). Rumours suggest that the LBA will be based on the company’s CMF-A+ platform. This is the same platform that underpins the Kwid and Triber.
To keep the manufacturing cost in check, Renault India has plans to locally manufacture the car. Mechanically, the all-new compact sedan will be propelled by a 1.0-litre three-pot turbo petrol unit. Transmission duties will be done by 5-speed MT or either a 5-speed AMT. Here are a few rendered images of the new Kwid based sedan from Kleber Silva on Behance, and we must say that these digitally designed images looks stunning.
This also indicates that the carmaker could lay its hands on an all-new C-segment sedan to rival against the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Honda City, Hyundai Venue, VW Vento and Skoda Rapid. The rendered images shows that the new sedan can get features like sporty-looking alloy wheels, blacked-out B-pillar, Kwid-like front grille with some premium chrome accents, sleek LED DRLs, LED taillights, shark-fin antenna, blacked-out side cladding and much more. The headlamps are employed on the lower part of the bumper.
