We previously reported that Renault India has deferred its plan to launch its small SUV to early 2021 because of sustained supply chain disruption in the country due to coronavirus pandemic. As per the new plan, the carmaker might reveal the concept version of the SUV very soon. We also expect that the company might use this as an opportunity to officially christen its latest product for the Indian market. Some reports suggest that the SUV will be named Kiger.

The Renault HBC test mules have been spotted on numerous occasions. Despite heavy camouflaging, the leaked images gave out key details about the car. Based on the spy shots, we expect the SUV will be seen with boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, a pair of three-port headlamps, beefy bumper, black plastic cladding, sloping roofline, sculpted boot lid, C-shaped LED tail lamp cluster, roof-mounted rear spoiler, alloy wheels and more.

The upcoming subcompact SUV will be built on the advanced CMF-A+ platform that also underpins the Renault Triber MPV. The SUV is likely to be powered by a 1.0-litre ENERGY petrol engine that develops 71 bhp and 96 Nm of peak torque. A new 1.0-litre turbo petrol three-cylinder engine is also likely to be on offer, which was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. Transmission options might include a 5-speed manual and an AMT unit.
