Renault, one of the fastest growing automotive brands, created history with its Renault KWID.

This Attractive, Innovative and Affordable car, is a true game-changer and volume driver for Renault.

Staying true to its commitment to keep building on the success of KWID with breakthrough product innovations, Renault launched the new KWID CLIMBER. With the launch of KWID CLIMBER, Renault has made a conscious effort to create a vehicle that is a perfect combination of style and premiumness.

Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO, and Managing Director, Renault India Operations said, “At Renault, we are committed to our core specialty of “concept innovation”, with the endeavour of redefining a segment, offering new and innovative products to customers.

The Renault KWID CLIMBER has been developed keeping in mind specific customer needs, becoming the perfect offering for young achievers who are moving up places steadfastly.

This new launch reflects Renault’s intent to keep pace with global innovations and at the same time make products to suit the local needs.”

The KWID CLIMBER, which made its world premiere as a concept vehicle, gathered tremendous attention.

Designed and developed by Renault’s design studios, the CLIMBER demonstrated Renault’s progressive design innovation while underscoring Renault’s commitment.

The KWID CLIMBER concept proves the highest degree in which the KWID can be customised.

KWID CLIMBER will offer segment leading length, power to weight ratio, boot space, ground clearance and cutting-edge technology.

It boasts of several first-in-segment features led by its SUV inspired design, 7-inch touchscreen MediaNAV system, digital Instrument cluster, one-touch lane change indicator, radio speed dependent volume control and pro-sense seat belt pretensioners with load limiters.

Best-in-class features include its boot capacity of 300 litres, ergo-smart cabin, multiple storage spaces, upper segment body dimensions, interior space, service parts maintenance cost, ride & handling and several personalisation options.


CLIMBER draws on the DNA of the KWID to develop its SUV capability to the extreme.

At the first glance, CLIMBER’s SUV lines are reflective of its tough, robust character and underpin its distinctive, premium look.

As for the exterior, the KWID CLIMBER features rugged bumper overrriders, front and rear terrain protectors with orange accents, two tone arching roof bars, muscular style wheels and a solid side profile with robust door protection cladding and two tone orange exterior rearview mirrors painted in glossy orange.

The CLIMBER insignia on the front doors creates its unique identity. This draws attention to the robust features which have become the Renault KWID’s hallmark.

All these design changes have brought forth a matured overall stance in line with its all-terrain attitude. With its high ground clearance and wide track, this car is built to turn heads.

The interior too boasts of several striking design elements like the new orange energy upholstery with CLIMBER insignia, new vibrant orange accents on the AC vents and on the centre fascia and decorative orange door trim accents on the front and rear doors.

All these bring an energetic feel to the cabin. Other styling elements include specific floor mats and a chunky steering wheel with CLIMBER insignia.

The interior has been crafted with thoughtful design elements in order to complement the vehicle’s stylish exterior.

The KWID CLIMBER personifies a new generation urbanite who wants a robust vehicle with more style.

The CLIMBER enhances the style quotient inside out. The result is a very distinctive personality which suits all types of adventure.


KWID CLIMBER will add greater diversity to the range, taking forward the positioning of KWID as a car that enables customers to “Live For More”.

The 1.0 litre SCe engine which powers the KWID CLIMBER is optimally designed for better performance.

The 4 valves per cylinder of the Double Over Head Camshaft (DOHC) layout ensures low pressure drop and super-efficient valve lift for a higher air filling, thus allowing the engine to make usable power at low end, mid-range and high-end rev bands.

This high technology engine offers excellent drivability, be it slick city streets or on the highway.


The Easy-R Gear Box is a 5-speed Automated Manual Transmission (AT) technology derived from Renault’s rich and successful expertise in Formula 1.

It will enable a clutch free driving experience that combines the fuel economy and performance of a manual transmission with the convenience of automated gear shifting.

The Innovative Shift Control Dial with three modes Reverse – Neutral – Drive has been smartly designed for ease of use.

An advanced control unit automatically optimises gear shifting in accordance with driving conditions for smooth and regular acceleration to offer a comfortable and stress-free driving experience.

The Easy-R gear box can be operated with an innovative shift control dial that is positioned below the infotainment system on the centre console.

The car has an advanced throttle control unit that monitors the throttle input by optimising acceleration and gear shifting.

Renault KWID’s SUV-inspired design offering a high driving position for greater visibility, state-of-the-art MediaNav multimedia & navigation system and the all new Easy-R Gear Box come together to offer an unmatched easy and stress-free experience for today’s congested driving conditions.

KWID 1.0 AT comes with excellent fuel efficiency of 24.04 kmpl (ARAI).


Safety is of paramount importance for Renault, and all its products meet and exceed the requisite safety standards set by the regulatory authorities.

Apart from several active and passive safety equipment, KWID CLIMBER features a driver airbag and first-in-class pro-sense seat belts with pre-tensioners with load limiters, an important safety feature that is usually offered in upper segment cars as standard.


With KWID, Renault focused on getting the fundamentals right, in terms of product, design, features, technology, launch timing, value and strategy.

KWID has been a true game changer in all these aspects.

The KWID CLIMBER will be available in 1.0L AT variant with three exciting colour options with orange details – Electric Blue, Outback Bronze and Planet Grey.

Bookings have commenced across all Renault dealerships. Bookings can be made either at the dealerships or through the Renault website.
