Renault will look at the Captur for some design ideas when it comes to Triber’s front look to have a more butch and aggressive stance. There could also be the use of a lot of body cladding. The exterior should have a tougher look than its rivals. The car is also going to mostly have a fascia that resembles the Captur in many ways. Color options could have the existing colors that are offered with the Kwid.
