Renault India is expected to launch its new SUV codenamed HBC later this year, which will only come in petrol with the updated BS-VI engine. The SUV will be sub-four meter in length and be built on the same platform as the Triber MPV, which was launched in 2019.
The price of the SUV is expected to start from Rs 7 lakh and go up to Rs 10 lakh for the automatic variant. The SUV is expected to be powered by the turbocharged version of the Triber's 1.0 litre 3-cylinder engine producing 72PS of power and 96Nm of torque. The car will get both, 5-speed manual and the AMT transmission options. Renault is expected to bring the CVT transmission for this one.
The exterior styling of the SUV is expected to come with a split headlamp, with an indicator unit on top and projector headlamps on the bottom. The side profile is more squared-off than the Triber's The rear end of the SUV should get LED tail lamps and a shark-fin antenna.
