This Renault Kwid is ready for some camping fun

Renault recently launched the all-new Kwid facelift hatchback in India at a starting price of Rs 2.83 lakhs. It is one of the most affordable cars in the segment and also looks pretty good thanks to the SUV inspired design and the split headlamp setup. in the Indian market. Bookings for the facelifted Kwid are already going on and one can book the hatchback for a token amount of Rs 5,000. Now since the design of the Kwid is inspired by SUVs, the video below by Yogi Sejwal Design shows how the car would look like if it’s modified on the lines of a camping vehicle.

Called the Renault Kwid Camper, this rendered version of the popular hatchback is based on the top-end Climber variant of the car. Now the Climber variant of the Kwid already featured an attractive design and looks more rugged than the rest of the variants of the Kwid. This one though takes things a notch higher and transforms the car into a camping vehicle. The LED DRLs on top have been given a yellow coating along with a few other changes like the blacked-out Renault logo and black trim across the lower end of the bumper.

The sides also feature black body cladding with ‘CAMPER’ written over them in bold. The alloy wheels of the car have been blacked out too and have a different design as compared to the stock model. The major additions are placed on top of the SUV in the form of an auxiliary light array and a large rooftop tent. Such tents are available easily and can be folded away when not in use. A lot of USV owners who like to go off-road or camp equip their vehicle with such tents. Practically speaking though, the Kwid is not the perfect vehicle to have a tent on top of it due to its small size and small engine.
