Renault Kwid Climber & Kwid Racer Concepts – 2016 Auto Expo

At the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, Renault revealed two specially designed Kwid tiny SUV concept models – the adventure wannabe Kwid Climber and the track-ready Kwid Racer. Probably the company is celebrating the big success of the Kwid hatch in the Indian market since its launch in September last year.

Both the funky concept models boast certain exterior and interior modification made on the regular Kwid small car. Although the company did not reveal the engine tech-specs of the cars, it is likely that these cars are powered by the same 0.8-litre engine as the regular car.
