The Renault Kwid facelift design will be inspired by the K-ZE model and the company will make changes to the chassis along with the engines
Renault Kwid is the basic model of the company in India and the current generation model has been in the market for some time. The French manufacturer is working on an update for the Kwid, as the hatchback needs to meet future safety standards. The facelift model has already been tested on public roads.
One of the key changes for the Kwid is ahead, as the design draws on the K-ZE EV model presented at the 2019 Auto Shanghai. The front gets the new grille with many chrome and split headlamps mounted on which LED DRLs are placed on top while headlights are placed underneath it with a black end.
The company also gave a new bumper and the bottom finished in black. The hood has minor adjustments to meet the next law of pedestrians. The side design is similar to the current model, but the hatchback loses on alloy wheels and the stained test mule only comes with wheel cover.
The rear does not receive any changes except the new bumper. The Kwid also comes with the integrated spoiler and the regular model loses the roof rails, which is only available on the Climber trim. The interior is likely to be transferred from the current model with upgraded features like a new infotainment system with touch screen.
The connectivity options like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with other features like a rear camera with parking sensors, speed alert, power windows, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, speed alert, driver alert and seatbelt and a lot more. Renault is expected to make some changes to the chassis as well.
It is likely that the quality of the body improves, which will help the model to meet the new safety standards. The company will make some changes to the existing 0.8 L and 1.0 L engines of the current model, as they need to be upgraded to BSVI. These engines will be coupled to the manual gearbox as standard and the AMT will be offered only with a 1.0 L variant.
