Sold in a total of 16 variants, Renault has constantly been introducing special edition variants of the Kwid to keep the hatchback in the spotlight through its lifecycle. At the 2016 Auto Expo, the Climber and Racer editions were showcased but only the former has so far entered showrooms. Moreover, to mark the yearly celebration, Renault launched two anniversary versions in the consequent years.
Only last month, the Live For More Reloaded edition of the Kwid made its presence in India. The standard Kwid is sold with either a 799 cc or a 999 cc petrol engine. However, the Renault Kwid Super Hero Edition gets only the 999 cc inline three-cylinder DOHC motor which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 67 bhp at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of peak torque delivered at 4,250 rpm. It is mated to five-speed manual or a five-speed AMT.
