In a bid to refresh its entire product range for the Indian market this festive season, Renault has just launched limited edition models of the Kwid hatchback, Triber compact MPV and Kiger compact SUV. All three cars get minor changes to justify the Limited Edition tag associated with them. Bookings for all three cars will commence from today, across all Renault dealerships in India. The Limited Edition Renault Kwid, Kiger and Triber are available at no extra cost. While the Limited Editions of Kiger and Triber are based on the RxZ trim, the Limited Edition Kwid is based on the Climber model.
All three cars get Dual Tone combination of White colour and a Mystery Black Roof, Sporty Red Accents around the front grill, DRLs/headlamps and side door decals as standard changes. Coming to car specific touches, he Renault Kwid Limited Edition gets red highlights in the front and rear skid plates, roof rails along with exterior embellishment, “Climber” decal in red on C-pillar and piano black coloured wheel covers and wing mirrors. The Kiger gets wheel silverstone and calipers in red colour while the Triber gets Piano black wheel covers and door handles as additional changes.
Mechanically, all three Limited Edition cars are similar to the regular variants. In case of the Renault Kwid Climber Limited Edition, the car is powered by a 1 liter-3 cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 67 Bhp of peak power and 91 Nm of peak torque. A 5 speed manual gearbox is standard, and drives the front wheels of this muscularly styled entry-level hatchback. The Kwid Climber 1.0 also gets a 5 speed automated manual transmission (called Easy-R) option.
The Kiger is the French automaker’s only SUV for the Indian market currently, and operates in the sub-4 meter segment. The Kiger Limited Edition is sold with a 1 liter-3 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 99 Bhp of peak power and 160 Nm of peak torque. This engine gets two gearbox options: a 5 speed manual and a CVT automatic. Both gearboxes drive the front wheels of the compact SUV. The Kiger is a well-built SUV and has bagged 4 stars and a stable body structure in the Global NCAP crash test rating. One of Renault’s best sellers, the Kiger is also available with a naturally aspirated 1 liter petrol engine (71 Bhp-96 Nm) on the lower trims. This engine gets 5 speed manual and AMT options.
The Renault Triber is a compact MPV that measures under 4 meters in length but has some very clever space management on the inside, allowing a 7 seat layout. The seat layout can be tweaked to carry more luggage making the Triber a very versatile car. Like the Kiger, the Triber has also scored 4 stars in the Global NCAP crash test, and its body structure has been rated stable. The MPV shares its 1 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine with the Kiger. This engine is offered with 5 speed manual and AMT options.
