French auto manufacturer is ready to launch the Kwid facelift in early October. The company upgraded the Duster in July this year and also launched the all-new Triber recently. The Kwid has been around since 2015, and the hatchback is finally receiving a mid-cycle upgrade.
The all-new Renault Kwid facelift will be available in four variants. While there is no information about the different variants, the hatchback will feature a string of cosmetic upgrades that include a split-headlamp set up, LED DRLs, a tweaked front grille, redesigned bumpers, and LED infused tail lamps.
According to AutoCar India, The new Renault Kwid facelift will feature some elements from the recently launched Triber. These elements include the steering wheel, the digital instrument cluster, and the 8.0-inch touchscreen that is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible. Renault has also upgraded safety features on the new Kwid facelift.
No mechanical changes have been made to the vehicle. The new Kwid facelift will continue to feature both engine options - a 0.08-litre engine that produces 54bhp of power, and the 1.0-litre petrol engine that produces 68bhp of power. Renault will upgrade the engines to meet BS-VI norms closer to the April deadline.
The current-generation Renault Kwid is priced between Rs 2.76 lakh and Rs 4.75 lakh. We expect the facelift model to be priced between Rs 3 lakh and Rs 5 lakh. All prices are ex-showroom, India.
Once launched, the Kwid facelift will compete with the Datsun Redigo, the Maruti Suzuki Alto and Alto K10, and the soon-to-be launched Maruti Suzuki S-Presso.
Thoughts About The Renault Kwid Facelift Launching Next Month
Finally! Renault has really delayed the upgrades that were needed on the Kwid. The hatchback has been one the company's best selling models and we're happy that the facelift variant will be loaded with new features in terms of creature comforts and safety.
We think Renault could have launched the Kwid facelift with a BS-VI complaint engine. Either way, we hope the all new Kwid facelift and the recently launched Triber do wonders for the Renault's coffers.
