For safety, it will offer dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, electronic stability control, and an engine immobilizer.

The upcoming Renault sedan is likely to be offered with two BS6-compliant engine options: a 1.0-liter naturally-aspirated petrol motor that makes 71hp of power and 96Nm of peak torque, and a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol mill that generates 98.6hp/160Nm.
The transmission duties on the car will be handled by a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox.

The upcoming Renault sub-4 meter sedan will make its debut in India in 2021 and is likely to carry a starting price-tag of around Rs. 6 lakh. Once launched, it will go against rivals like Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Ford Aspire, Honda Amaze, and Tata Tigor.
