Renault India will be launching the RBC MPV in the country in the second half of 2019. The French car giant has confirmed its plan to launch the entry-level people carrier, which is expected to be priced at an affordable price of Rs 4.5 lakh (ex-showroom).  Spy images of the MPV give a peek into its styling which includes company’s quintessential V-shaped grille in front and curvaceous shaped small headlamps. The LED strip seen in the first spy image is however missing in the latest spy shots, implying that it could be dropped in the final version.

Joining the subcompact MPV space, the RBC MPV will measure under 4.0m in length, making it eligible for the lowest GST cess for petrol and diesel passenger vehicles. Renault will use its low-cost CMF-A platform for the MPV which also underpins Kwid. That said, the model, as suggested earlier, will not be based on the CMF-A+ underpinnings.

Under the hood, the model will receive a turbocharged versions of the 1.0-litre SCe unit, powering the Kwid 1.0L. As for transmission, it could get the conventional five-speed manual gearbox along with an automated manual unit. While the RBC MPV will underpin Kwid’s CMF-A platform, the model is expected to be safer than its hatchback sibling (Kwid), thanks to a stronger structure and additional safety features. Considering that stringer safety norms will soon be implemented in the country, the RBC MPV is likely to come with a bunch of safety tech including driver side airbag, front seat-belt reminder, anti-lock-braking system with electronic brakefroce distribution and brake assist along with rear parking sensors. The aforementioned safety features are likely to be standard across the carline.
