Maruti Alto rival, Renault small car rendered
2015 will see Renault India launch its production version of A-Entry hatchback, currently code named XBA. This upcoming model will be the least priced car in the company line-up in India and will be based on a Renault-Nissan CMF-A platform.
Apart from the XBA, Renault-Nissan are also developing another car for India, Redi-Go. This was showcased at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. Both, XBA and Redi-Go are being developed from scratch in India at Renault-Nissan Technical Center in Chennai. Sharing of parts and a large amount of local content will see the new Renault XBA affordably priced, though the XBA will be priced higher than the Datsun Redi-Go. However it will also receive more enhanced features in keeping with Renault’s car brand positioning as against Brand Datsun.
Renault XBA in India, will be powered by a sub-1-liter petrol engine mated to a 5 speed transmission while an automated manual transmission could also make its way into this upcoming small car. In Brazil, the Renault XBA will receive a flex fuel motor running on either petrol or ethanol.
