    Both concepts made their global debut at the expo and were present to showcase the level by which the Kwid could be customized. Ever since its launch 4 months ago, the Kwid has been a big hit for Renault as it has already received 100,000 orders for the little SUV-styled hatchback.

    Laurens Van Den Acker, Senior Vice President, Corporate Design, who was present at the unveiling, said, "Both of the show cars are based on the Renault Kwid platform. The front end is distinctive and immediately recognisable as a Renault. The wheel arches are generous and the unique body colours bear design touches common to both vehicles."

    The Renault Kwid Climber concept stands high off the ground and further adds to the car's SUV-like demeanour. Built for venturing away from the beaten track, the raised ground clearance, wide track, short overhangs and the specially designed tyres clearly highlight the showcars go-anywhere offroader attitude. Other SUV-like traits include a compact footprint, big bumpers, protective moulding on its sides and the diamond-effect wheels.

    The Flame Orange concept also featured some very attractive bits of design including the electric blue lining on its flared wheel arches and protective head-lamp housing, both of which add to its all-terrain feel. In the words of the manufacturer, the Climber 'draws on the DNA of the Renault Kwid to develop its SUV capability to the extreme.'

    Shown besides the Flame Orange Kwid Climber was the metallic blue Renault Kwid Racer concept which was designed for a completely different purpose as can be seen by its large 18-inch alloy wheels, low-profile tyres, racing bucket seats, and a roll cage. The Kwid Racer was made to showcase the Kwid's adaptability for the track and as a result features many design elements borrowed from sports cars. The wide air intakes, large spoilers and diffuser, are all suggestive of it being a high performance car with track-worthy handling.

    The car is quite stunning to behold. The signature C-shaped LED light guides in the head-lamp units make the front fascia quite spectacular to look at and high-tech treatment of the lights fits in to the manufacturers new design strategy. On the inside, the Kwid Racer features premium quality materials like Alcantara leather, aluminium and carbon. The Titane Black trim is accentuated by anodized red highlights and telemetry data display provided in the centre console are indicative of its motorsport DNA. The seats get race-inspired 4-point harnesses and the driver also gets access to a digital rev counter and a leather wrapped steering wheel with an alloy frame designed specifically for racing.
