  • Overview Renault XBA hatchback Overview

    Renault is working on a new low cost hatchback that would enter the market to challenge the leader in this segment, the Maruti Suzuki Alto. The new car has a codename XBA and a final name would be known near the launch only. The engine for the new car is being developed in India by Nissan and Renault. The Datsun Redigo is another budget hatchback and the upcoming XBA will share the platform with this car. When the XBA enters the market, it will be the most affordable car from the manufacturer in the Indian market.

    Renault Xba Hatchback Exterior

    It will have a tall boy design, pretty much like the Redigo. This would allow taller passengers to sit comfortably even in the rear seat. The Renault logo on the front is quite prominent on a slim grille separated by chrome slats. The headlamps are large and designed nicely to complement the overall design of the front. The ground clearance is also good to save it from scraping the belly over bad patches or roads and large speed bumps. They are already testing this upcoming car in Indian conditions to fine tune it before the launch. This could very well be another hit for the manufacturer after the Duster. They are targeting 5% market share in the next couple of years and this could be help make some progress in that direction.

    The Renault XBA hatchback is going to be a powered by an 800 cc three cylinder petrol engine. There is no details on the figures yet but expect the peak power to be somewhere around 50 bhp. The engine will come mated to a five speed manual gearbox with the option of an automated manual transmission. To compete with the more powerful Alto K10, they are also working on a 1 litre engine which will develop more power.

    With a low displacement engine, this car is sure to be an efficient one. Expect fuel consumption figures of around 20 kmpl on highway and around 16 kmpl in city driving.
