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.
