Renault is getting ready to introduce a new sub-four meter MPV in the Indian market. This sub-four meter MPV is codenamed as- RBC. As of now, a test mule of the RBC was spotted doing test runs. This camouflaged test mule was spotted near Renault-Nissan manufacturing facility in Oragadam.
As we look at the spy images, the car can been seen wrapped in heavy camouflage. Hence there are not many details that have been revealed. But it surely gives us a good view of the side profile of this sub-four meter MPV.
Under the heavy camouflage, we can notice that the RBC gets wraparound headlamps and a very prominent grille. While at the rear, it also gets wraparound tail lamp cluster and it can be seen that the stop lamp is mounted high at the top end of the tailgate. The test mule of the RBC has been spotted running on steel wheels and the tyre size seems too small for this MPV.
According to some reports, we get to know that the new upcoming MPV codenamed as the RBC will be based on the Renaults CMF-A+ platform. This new MPV is expected to be powered by a 1.0 litre turbocharged, three-cylinder petrol engine. This engine will be based on the same engine which is seen under the hood of the Kwid hatchback.
As this new MPV will be under the sub-four meter length it will help Renault to reap the benefits of small cars and will also help them in pricing the car competitively. It is also rumored that the RBC will come with a third row that will help accommodating seven passengers.
