    Rumours are floating around of Renault’s plans to launch a sub-4m sedan in 2021. One source claims to have confirmed the development plans of the sedan from Renault officials.

    This new sub-4m sedan is expected to use the Renault Triber’s platform. If that’s the case, then we can expect it to have good cabin space and knee room even in the second row. The Triber wins in this area with a big wheelbase. Similar to the Renault Triber, we can also expect it to have some segment-first features like reclining rear seats. Since, there’s no need for a third row of seats, we can expect Renault to use those cost-savings towards adding more unique features or lowering the price enough that you can’t help but take notice.

    The compact sedan segment has some competent options like the Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire and Volkswagen Ameo. However, only two cars, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Honda Amaze, sell in meaningful numbers. Renault will once again have to take Maruti Suzuki head-on and we’re counting on an aggressive price tag.

    In terms of looks, we can expect it to take some rugged styling cues from SUVs and offer a high ground clearance in a 3-box sedan form factor. That should make it a stylish, practical and affordable alternative to the overpriced sub-compact SUVs like the Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, etc.

    On the powertrain front, we’re expecting it to borrow the 1.0-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine from the Triber. It makes 72PS of power at 6250rpm and 96Nm of torque at 3500rpm. A smaller engine with adequate power and torque should also help them achieve a lower price point.

    We can also expect Renault to showcase a concept version of this sub-4m sedan at the 2020 Auto Expo. We’re already pretty certain that the 2020 Renault HBC sub-compact SUV will be present at the auto show in near-production form.
