Renault RBC spied testing with LED day-time-running lights

Renault RBC spied testing with LED day-time-running lights

-    The RBC is the upcoming MPV from Renault. 

-    Based on the Kwid, the RBC will be available with a new touchscreen and AMT.

-    Expected to be launched later this year or early 2020.

Renault is developing an all-new MPV for the Indian market. Codenamed RBC, the new seven-seater MPV will be based on the same CMF-A platform as the Kwid. The test mule of the RBC has been spotted on many occasions already. But this time around, a small video gives us an idea about the overall design and shape, apart from day-time-running lights. 

The RBC will be much smaller than the Lodgy and even the segment leader, the Ertiga. The fascia of the MPV will be akin to the Renault family face with a wing-type nose grille and with LED strips underlining the headlamps. The silhouette will be rounded off to make more cabin space since the MPV is likely to measure under four metres. The test mule was sporting prominent roof rails as well, but the wheels were steel ones instead of alloys. 

Spy images of the interior from earlier reports revealed a black and silver package with a chrome outline for the instrument cluster. The cluster looks similar to the one seen on the Captur and Duster, but it will lose out on some features to keep the cost down. The third row in the cabin might not be the best in space for adults, however, with the last row folded down, it could have adequate boot space. 

Under the hood will be a choice of both petrol and diesel engines. The former could be the 1.2-litre unit from Datsun Go while the latter could be the bigger 1.5-litre which does duty in the Duster. Transmission options would be a five-speed manual with optional AMT as well. 

When launched, the RBC will be positioned between the Kwid and the Duster. The yet-to-be-named MPV is expected to be priced between Rs 6-10 lakhs. It will compete against the Maruti Ertiga and Honda BR-V in the Indian car market.
