At the 2016 Auto Expo, Renault showcased a couple of concept variants of the popular Kwid hatchback. What’s more, they did talk about putting them into production. And, unsurprisingly, it is the SUV-ish Kwid Climber that has arrived first. The Kwid is already very crossover-like in terms of appearance. The visual upgrades accompanying the Climber variant will only enhance that look. The Renault Kwid Climber has gone on sale at a starting price of Rs. 4.30 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Renault Kwid Climber Design
Kwid Climber adds more muscle to the exteriors of the standard hatch. The front and rear bumpers get faux skid plates. The production spec Kwid Climber also features alloy wheels. Based on the official images, the production spec Renault Kwid Climber is a heavily toned-down version of the concept. The only noticeable changes are in the form of black inserts for the front bumper and alloy wheels. Other cosmetic updates include orange wing mirror casing, orange exterior highlights, ‘CLIMBER’ decals and a new shade of blue.
The concept car featured interiors finished in light and dark materials along with orange highlights. Again, like the exterior of the Kwid Climber, the interior of the production spec model has been toned down. Changes include orange highlights for the cabin and new seat covers.
