The new Renault Kwid seems influenced by the K-ZE which is sold in China.
After the Duster, Renault’s Kwid was the one to provide the French automaker with a strong presence among its competition in India. The Kwid has consistently been a top-seller for the brand but could not get a place in August 2019’s top 25 car sales list.
New spy images of the Renault Kwid have surfaced online giving away the car’s new face and a reworked split headlamp setup. The images also reveal grey and orange accents around the headlamp housing and some orange highlights inside the cabin indicating that it could be the Climber variant of the new Kwid.
The new Renault Kwid gets a razor grille, similar to what we have seen on the new Triber. It gets a new set of horizontal headlamps grafted onto the bumper with sharp LED Daytime Running Lights atop and a new front bumper with horizontal air intake. A lot seems to be inspired by the Kwid electric sold in China, the K-ZE.
Coming to the interior, the test mule seems to feature a new touchscreen infotainment system, a new steering wheel, some accents here and there as well as a new position for the shifter knob. It has been moved from the dashboard to the centre console. The new Kwid could also get improved safety features like – driver-side airbag, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), rear parking sensors, speed-alert and seatbelt reminder.
As of now, the Renault Kwid is offered in 2 engine options – 799cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine producing 54 PS and 72 Nm of peak torque, along with the 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine that develops 68 PS and 91 Nm of peak torque. The revised version may be BS6 compliant.
The ongoing model sits between Rs. 2,76,000/- to Rs. 4,76,000/- (ex-showroom, Delhi). We expect a small augmentation in the price of the upcoming model owing to the BS6 upgrade and cosmetic changes.
