Last month, we brought you an exclusive about the Renault Kwid Facelift that said that the much-awaited hatchback will be launched in September. Now, we are here again with the pictures of the upcoming Kwid facelift. Going by the images, it is quite apparent that this one is quite a ‘facelift’ with an all-new front end design. The slew of stylistic changes on the facelifted Kwid are mainly inspired by the K-ZE – the electric variant of the hatchback which is already on sale in the Chinese market.
These images, courtesy Auto Punditz, bare it about what’s new in terms of the exterior design of the Kwid Facelift. The headlights and LED DRLs have been swapped reminiscent of the new trend. Nonetheless, we admit that the car looks quite stylish and this design gives a premium appeal to the hatchback. The grille has also grown bigger in size and the bumper design has been updated too. to let you know, the Kwid in these images is the top of the line Climber variant which is the reason you see those orange highlights and beefy inserts.
The alloy wheel design on this facelift has also been updated and as seen in the images, the wheels now sport a grey shade. Apart from the front end and the alloy wheels though, not much has changed in the side profile or the rear end of the car. The tail lamp design has been slightly updated and there are a few alterations here and there but the Kwid facelift is all about the snazzy front end when it comes to changes on the exteriors.
In terms of the interiors, not much is known but expect the Kwid to come with a few cabin updates as well. The shifter knob on the AMT variants has now been shifted back and the placement of the infotainment system has also been shifted a bit. But as is the case with the exteriors of the Renault Kwid facelift, the interiors also don’t sport major changes. A few spyshots previously showed that the dashboard touchscreen infotainment system has been updated and the steering wheel is borrowed from the Triber. Further, the new Kwid could also get improved safety features like – driver-side airbag, anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD), rear parking sensors, speed-alert and seatbelt reminder.
The Renault Kwid facelift could get a bump in its power figures but that is not confirmed by the manufacturer as of now. The 1.0-litre petrol engine on currenty churns out 67 Bhp of power along with 91 Nm of torque and comes with both manual and automatic transmission options. With all these changes in place, expect the prices of the Kwid facelift to go up by a few notches.
