Rumour: Renault HBC compact SUV to launch in 2021

According to a media report, Renault could launch a new compact SUV (codenamed: HBC) in 2021.

Reports suggest that the HBC is likely to be based on the CMF-A+ platform. However, unlike the Triber, which uses the same platform, the HBC is expected to be a 5-seater. 

The Renault HBC could be powered by a 1.0-litre, turbocharged petrol engine with a choice of a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox. It has been reported that the HBC may not get a diesel engine option. 

In addition to other sub-4 meter SUVs, the Renault HBC is expected to compete with the Maruti Vitara Brezza along with Toyota’s version of the same and Kia’s upcoming compact SUV. Datsun is also likely to offer a similar product based on the same platform as the HBC.
