Today Renault has launched the Kwid Climber edition in India, which is basically a cosmetically enhanced iteration of the regular model. It is based on the Kwid’s range-topping 1.0-litre RXT (O) variant and is priced at Rs 4.30 lakh for the manual and Rs 4.60 lakh for the Easy-R AMT version (automated manual transmission) (all the prices are introductory, ex-showroom, New Delhi). This makes the Climber the most expensive model in the Kwid’s line-up, and both the versions are costlier by nearly Rs 25,000 than their respective 1.0-litre RXT (O) trims.
The Renault Kwid Climber doesn’t get any mechanical changes, but it does get a bunch of cosmetic updates. On the outside, it gets new front and rear bumpers with faux bash plates, roof rails, orange ORVM covers, a Climber sticker on the front doors and new six-spoke 13-inch alloy wheels and wheel arches and Climber badges on the front doors and rear windshield. The Climber edition can be opted in three colours: Outback Bronze, Planet Grey and a new Electric Blue. The interior, meanwhile, gets orange highlights on the door pads, seats, around the centre console and around the AC vents. It also gets a chrome finish around the instrument cluster and the Climber logo on the lower spoke of the steering wheel.
It is the same as the standard car continues to be powered by a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder SCe petrol engine that churns out 67 BHP and 91 Nm of torque. This engine can be opted with either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT.
