This is a small SUV Renault HBC, whose debut should take place as early as next year.

Back in April, Renault India Managing Director Venkatram Mamilapalle confirmed that the brand’s new SUV, whose length will not exceed four meters, will be officially introduced in 2020. Now, another representative of the brand – Fabrice Kamboliv, senior vice president and chairman of AMI-Pacific Groupe Renault, shared with The Economic Times the first details about the new Renault HBC. According to him, the company is currently working in two key areas. The first is the electrification of cars, and the second is the production of off-road vehicles less than four meters long. This segment is showing good growth today, and it would be extremely short-sighted to miss out on buyers who are tuned in to purchase subcompact SUVs.

Recall subcompact hatchback Renault Kwid caused a real stir in India. Now the brand is going to repeat this success in other segments.

According to experts, the Renault subcompact SUV will receive an improved version of the CMF-A platform called the CMF-A +.

While this type of power units can often be found under the hood of Indian SUVs up to four meters in length.

Whether the new SUV will receive global status is not yet known. Among the main rivals of new items called Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport and Mahindra XUV300.
