The car is claimed to have 17 new styling and de­sign cues, along with a new elec­tric blue body colour with vi­brant or­ange ac­cents.

Su­mit Sawh­ney, Coun­try CEO and Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Renault In­dia Op­er­a­tions, said the Kwid CLIMBER has been de­vel­oped keep­ing in mind spe­cific cus­tomer needs and caters to di­verse au­di­ences. He added that this new launch re­flects Renault’s in­tent to keep pace with global innovations and at the same time make prod­ucts to suit the lo­cal needs. Sawh­ney re­it­er­ated that Renault’s roadmap for In­dia is very clear, with an im­me­di­ate goal of achiev­ing a mar­ket share of 5% in the near-term.

The Renault Kwid CLIMBER has been de­signed and de­vel­oped by the com­pany’s de­sign stu­dios in Mum­bai and Chen­nai, show­cas­ing the ways in which the Kwid can be cus­tomised. The ex­te­rior of the Kwid CLIMBER fea­tures bumper over­rides, front and rear skid plates with or­ange ac­cents, dual-tone arch­ing roof rails, two-tone or­ange out­side rear-view mir­rors and new al­loy wheels. The car also fea­tures the ‘CLIMBER’ in­signia on the front doors and rear wind­shield, as well as or­ange turn in­di­ca­tors on the front fend­ers.

Changes to the in­te­rior in­clude or­ange up­hol­stery with ‘CLIMBER’ in­signia, or­ange ac­cents on the AC vents and cen­tre fas­cia and or­ange ac­cents on the front and rear doors. It is also equipped with a twotone or­ange gear knob for the man­ual trans­mis­sion vari­ant, spe­cial floor mats and a steer­ing wheel with the ‘CLIMBER’ in­signia.

The Kwid CLIMBER is pow­ered by the 1 litre, three-cylin­der, SCe petrol en­gine de­liv­er­ing 67 hp of power and 91 Nm of peak torque. The man­ual trans­mis­sion vari­ant is claimed to re­turn an ARAI-cer­ti­fied fuel econ­omy of 23.01 km/l. The Easy-R gear­box is a five-speed AMT that com­bines the fuel econ­omy and per­for­mance of a man­ual trans­mis­sion with the con­ve­nience of au­to­mated gear shift­ing.
