2020 renault kwid facelift 2

After the Triber, Renault has updated both the 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre petrol engines of the Kwid with BS6-compliance

Renault India launched a mid-life facelift for the Kwid with BS4-compliant 799 cc and 1.0-litre petrol motors last year, at a starting price of Rs 2.83 lakh (ex-showroom). Now, the French carmaker has updated both the powertrains of the Kwid to comply with the latest emission norms, which has resulted in a price hike of Rs 9,000 across the range.

The power output of both the drivetrains remain the same. The 799 cc three-cylinder petrol engine puts out 54 hp of peak power and 72 Nm peak torque, while the bigger 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is good for 68 hp power and 91 Nm torque. The smaller 0.8-litre engine can only be had with a 5-speed manual gearbox, but the larger 1.0-litre motor can also be clubbed with a 5-speed AMT.

Renault continues to offer the Kwid with features like an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, a rear parking camera, a digital instrument cluster, rear center armrest and more. On the safety front, the car comes with a driver side airbag, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, front seat belt reminder and a high-speed alert system as standard.
