At the 2016 New Delhi Auto Show, Renault is taking the wraps off two show cars, namely Renault KWID Climber and Renault KWID Racer. While the former is bred for venturing away from the beaten track, the latter is more at home on the asphalt of race circuits, providing still more evidence of the potential of this unique model.
RENAULT KWID CLIMBER
Renault KWID Climber stands tall as an off-roader. With its high ground clearance, wide track, short overhangs and the specially designed pattern of its tyres, this car is built for adventure off the beaten track. It has all the qualities of an off-roader, including a compact footprint, high ground clearance, big bumpers, side protective mouldings, and generous, diamond-effect wheels. Its deep Flame Orange finish underscores the sculpted lines of the body.
The wheel arch extensions are highlighted in electric blue. This draws attention to the robust features which have become the Renault KWID’s hallmark. The special protective housings of the car’s lights heighten its all-terrain feel. A born off-roader, the Climber draws on the DNA of the Renault KWID to develop its SUV capability to the extreme. The result is a very distinctive personality which suits all types of adventure.
RENAULT KWID RACER
Renault KWID Racer belongs to an entirely different category of car and conjures up the world of racing, with 18-inch alloy wheels, low-profile tyres, honed aerodynamics, bucket seats and a roll cage. It boasts of a sporty metallic blue finish. Its wide air intakes are suggestive of performance, while the spoilers and diffuser guarantee outstanding handling. The C-shaped LED lighting signature and the high-tech treatment of the lights signal that the Renault KWID Racer is clearly in tune with Renault’s new design strategy.
The inside of the car features materials like Alcantara, aluminium and carbon. The Titane Black trim is emphasised by touches of anodised red that is suggestive of the world of motor racing.
The totem console in the centre of the dashboard displays the telemetry data so the driver can track his or her performance in real time.
Tightly strapped into a four-point harness in the bucket seat, the driver benefits from a digital rev counter and a leather-trimmed steering wheel which boasts an alloy frame specially designed for racing.
Both the show cars are two distinct cars, which complement each other perfectly.
