Renault and Nissan share the same plant in Chennai to manufacture their cars for the Indian car market. The two automakers have a global joint-venture to share their technology as well. Renault now plans to launch a new small car, which will be based on the Micra platform. However, it will be more aggressive in terms of styling when compared to the Micra.

The new Renault small car will be powered by the same three pot 1.2-litre petrol engine which does duty on the Nissan Micra.

The new Renault small car will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Swift, Ritz, Hyundai i20, Skoda Fabia, Fiat Grande Punto, Volkswagen Polo, Chevrolet Beat, Ford Figo and its sibling Nissan Micra.
