Renault India is likely to launch the Megane sedan to replace the now defunct Fluence sedan in India. The Megane is already on sale in several international markets and is a successful model. In India, it is likely to come with 1.6-litre Petrol and 1.6-litre Diesel engines. It may be noted here that the D-segment of Indian car market has been struggling to fend off the heat from SUVs. While Renault India is expected to showcase the Megane to gauge the response from show-goers, its launch might happen only around the end of next year. That said, the Megane sedan will be one of the most important Renault cars at Auto Expo 2018.

Renault Koleos

Estimated Price Rs. 25-30 lakh
Expected Specifications 2.0 L Diesel
Expected Launch Date Mid 2018

It’s very likely that Renault India plans to re-launch the Koleaos moniker in India. Hence, the new-generation Koleos might make an appearance at the Auto Expo 2018. The last generation Koleos, which was on sale in India, couldn’t really find many takers. However, Renault doesn’t seem to have given up and will now launch the new Koleos to cash in on the increased demand for SUVs.

New Renault Grand Duster

Expected Launch Date Second Half 2018
Estimated Price Rs 12-16 lakh
Engine -NA-

Easily the most important of all Renault cars at Auto Expo 2018 will be the Grand Duster (new-generation Duster). Internationally, the new Renault Duster will go on sale in two formats – 5 seater and 7 seater. The latter is what India could get under the Grand Duster moniker. Watch out for the all-new Renault Grand Duster SUV at the manufacturer’s pavilion in the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo.

Renault Kwid Compact SUV

Expected Launch Date Second Half 2018
Estimated Price Rs 4.5-6 lakh
Engine 1.2-litre Petrol

Another important product that will make its debut at the next Auto Expo will be the Kwid-based compact SUV. While it’s unlikely to catch as much attention as the Grand Duster, the Kwid compact SUV will be still one of the most important Renault cars at Auto Expo 2018. The Kwid Compact SUV will share in plenty with the hatchback sibling but will make use of many styling updates and a bigger body-shell to pass off as a compact SUV. The current 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engines don’t seem likely to make it to the Kwid compact SUV. Instead, it might get the 1.2-litre Petrol engine from the Pulse hatchback. Renault India is likely to unveil a pre-production prototype at the 2018 Auto Expo next year.

Renault Kwid Racer

Expected Launch Date February 2018
Estimated Price Rs 3.5 lakh
Engine 1.0-litre Petrol

Renault India showcased the Kwid Climber and the Kwid Racer at the 2016 Auto Expo. While the Kwid Climber edition has already made it to production, the Kwid Racer will go on sale only next year. The production-spec Kwid Racer is likely to launch at the 2018 Delhi Auto Expo. The Kwid Racer gets a really tasty body kit, large alloy wheels, low-profile tyres and a metallic blue paint for the exterior. The show car at the last Auto Expo boasted a roll-cage and bucket seats. These are unlikely to make it to the production model. However, the car could still retain the digital rev counter and leather upholstery. The new 2018 Renault Kwid Racer will be one of the most important new launches at Auto Expo 2018.

  1. At this rate, Koleos is doomed to fail with better known names and better products available at lower price.
