New Details on Nissan and Renault CMF-B SUVs For India

A few weeks ago, Renault and Nissan disclosed their plans to launch four new SUVs in India, including two models based on the localised CMF-B platform. Now, sources have revealed some new developments about these upcoming Renault-Nissan utility vehicles: –

  • Renault-Nissan aims to elevate their upcoming crossovers to feel and perform like vehicles from higher segments.
  • This project represents the brands’ most ambitious projects in India, with senior management directly overseeing development.
  • Unlike the Renault Kiger and Nissan Magnite duo, which have distinct designs despite sharing a platform, the new CMF-B SUVs will optimize economies of scale by sharing most of the sheet metal. However, elements such as bumpers and grilles will be customized to give each model a unique visual identity.
  • Each car will feature unique interiors while incorporating shared components.
