The model has been repeatedly spotted on tests in serial performance and soon enters the market. The car is based on the Datsun Cross crossover and will be a little longer.

Datsun Cross for the first time will be the basis for another car. On the basis of its platform will be built a new minivan Renault RBC, designed for seven passenger seats in three rows of seats. The dimensions of the car will be: length – 3 995 mm, width – 1 670 mm, height – 1 560 mm, with a wheelbase of 2 450 mm.

Despite borrowing a platform from Datsun (a subsidiary of Nissan), RBC will receive its own unique design in the modern corporate style of the French brand. The car will receive a recognizable grille, as well as head optics. Judging by the spy photos, the car will be released in a cross-version with a characteristic “off-road” body kit with arch extensions.

 As a power unit will be used 1.2-liter naturally aspirated engine capable of developing up to 78 horsepower. Together with it, a five-speed manual transmission or a CVT is envisaged. All-wheel drive system will not be even in the top versions.

Unfortunately, the model is intended solely for the Indian market. The cost of the model is not reported.
