- The Kwid facelift features a new eight-inch infotainment system.
- It gets a slightly redesigned dashboard and new steering wheel.
Earlier this week, the Renault Kwid facelift was spotted uncamouflaged in India. Now, interiors of the new Kwid have been leaked ahead of its launch in India. And noticeably, there are quite a few changes inside the cabin of the Kwid facelift.
The most significant change is the all-new eight-inch touchscreen display, which is the same unit that does duty on the Renault Triber. Further, the semi-digital instrument cluster, too, is new and carried over from the Triber. It also gets a new steering wheel and redesigned AC vents. The dash-mounted rotary gear selector has been re-positioned on the central console, while the power-window switches are placed below the touchscreen display.
We have already seen the updated exterior styling in previous spy shots. The Renault Kwid facelift features an updated front fascia. Under the hood, it will continue to be powered by a 54bhp 0.8-litre petrol motor and a 67bhp 1.0-litre unit. Both the engines will be BS-IV compliant at launch and will be mated to a five-speed manual transmission. An AMT unit will be available as an option on the 1.0-litre powertrain. Both the motors will be made compliant with BS-VI norms once the new emissions come into effect from April 2020.
Once launched, the Renault Kwid facelift will compete against the Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and the Datsun redi-GO. The Kwid facelift will be slightly expensive, compared to the outgoing model, which is currently priced between Rs 2.88-4.85 lakh (ex-showroom).
