Kwid Climber

At the Auto Expo back in February 2016, Renault showcased a couple of rather interesting concepts based on the Kwid. The Kwid Climber was one of them and Renault is looking to put it into production it seems. The upcoming Renault Kwid Climber will basically be a cross variant of the Kwid. It should get beefier body cladding, fatter tires and other SUV-like detailing. Kwid Climber might be offered with only the 1.0 L Petrol.

Kaptur

Renault India will be looking to bolster its SUV portfolio with the launch of the Kaptur. It is one of the multiple SUV models on our list of upcoming new Renault Cars in India. The Kaptur will be a more premium offering than the Duster, which will help Renault take the fight to the Hyundai Creta. We expect the Renault Kaptur India launch to take place in the second half of 2017.

Grand Duster

Another SUV on our list of the upcoming new Renault cars in India is the next generation Duster. Renault is said to be developing a seven-seater version of the SUV for markets such as ours. Renault is likely to position the new generation Duster/Grand Duster above the Kaptur to rival the likes of the Mahindra XUV500.

Koleos

The Koleos‘ innings in India has been miserable so far. However, all that could change with the launch of the new 2017 model. In its latest form, the Koleos looks much better and is bigger than before. It could prove to be a serious rival to the upcoming Volkswagen Tiguan and Skoda Kodiaq SUVs. We’re expecting the Koleos to come to India by the end of 2017.

Megane Sedan/New Fluence

Like the Koleos, the Fluence also struggled in India. Then again, the D-Segment as a whole has been performing poorly. Still, Renault India is looking to bring the Megane Sedan to India. It will act as a replacement for the Fluence. Renault is expected to launch the Megane Sedan in India by the end of 2017 or early 2018.
