Renault Kayou, an small entry level car, which is confirmed to be priced under INR 4 lakhs; will make its global debut in India, on 20th May 2015. To be launched later this year, it will compete with the likes of Hyundai Eon, and Maruti Suzuki Alto.
A promotional campaign, titled – ‘LiveForMore’ draws attention to the upcoming Kayou. First impression we can draw from this Renault Kayou promo teaser, is that it will have the youth in urban India as target audience. To feature dynamic design and exciting on board technologies; never before seen in the segment, Kayou is expected to help Renault India increase their sales exponentially.
Renault Kayou is built on CMF-A platform. It will be powered by a new 800cc three cylinder petrol engine, which is rumoured to offer 50 bhp peak power and 90 Nm peak torque. Right from the design, till engine production, the entire car is a result of Renault India engineers. No diesel variant of the Renault Kayou will be on offer, but AMT could be on offer.
