Renault to announce the name of B-SUV on November 18

The Renault HBC crossover could be called the Kiger.

Renault is set to announce the name of its B-SUV (codenamed: HBC) on November 18. A trademark application filed by Renault earlier this year suggests that the HBC could be called the Kiger.

The crossover will be based on the CMF-A+ platform, which is shared with the Nissan Magnite. Spy images suggest that it is likely to get Renault’s typical V-shaped grille with triple-pod headlamps positioned on the front bumper and 3D tail lamp clusters.

The HBC crossover could be offered with 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engines. The naturally aspirated motor produces 71 BHP and 96 Nm, while the turbo petrol version makes 99 BHP and 160 Nm. Transmission options could also be the same with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a CVT.

Earlier this week, Renault released a teaser video featuring the HBC concept. The car has sleek LED headlamps and a sporty roof spoiler at the rear.
