A first set of leaked images discloses the Renault Kwid Climber in production spec. The front bumper has been mildly revised and sports large plastic bits around the fog-lamp housing and a faux matte-silver skid plate to complete that rough look. The most significant add-on, however, is the alloy wheels which are being offered in the Kwid line-up for the first time. On the inside, the hatchback catches orange accents on the gear knob and dashboard. The front seats get a fresh fabric design with orange accents and prominent ‘Climber’ badging on the headrests. When launched, the Kwid Climber will be offered in an orange caps and electric blue paint shade for the wing mirrors.
As far as mechanicals go, the Kwid Climber will come with the same 1.0 litre petrol motor good for 68 BHP. Going by the leaked images, it will be available with the manual-gearbox option only. Expect the Kwid Climber to cost Rs.35, 000 to 45,000 more than the top-spec Kwid 1.0 manual variant. The new features to be offered on the Kwid Climber included a front bumper with faux skid plate and orange inserts, black cladding around the fog-lamps giving the Kwid a typical look, ORVMs painted in Orange, Roof bars with orange inserts and alloy wheels sum-up the changes on exterior. A new blue paint which was seen on the Racer concept will be obtainable.
On the inside the Renault Kwid Climber Climber comes with orange elements on the gear lever, door panels and center console. The seats are black with Climber stitching on the head rests and orange trim on the sides of the seat.
