If you are ready to venture through the changes, here are some of the information to note. The leaked images are talking of the car fanatics. There are a sporting number of changes. This further includes the new grille, split headlamps, revised bumper. It kind of mimics the Renault K-ZE EV.
So what do the leaked images portray? Well, the new images give a glimpse right from the plant. It is of the revamped Kwid facelift which might make its launch during the festive season. This updated edition is already taking a big leap of the newest launch in the segment – Maruti Suzuki S-Presso which is slated to launch on September 30, 2019.
There are bulk of changes implemented in the Renault Kwid facelift. The car gets split headlamps with LED daytime running lights. They are positioned right beside the front grille along with the main headlamp unit which is placed lower down on the front bumper. So mainly, the revised grille features with triple slats and not with honeycomb mesh.
The bumper is modified with sporty outlook. There is the addition of a faux skid plate with the Climber edition along with orange accents covering all over.

Speaking of the outside, here are some of the information gained regarding the insides. The Kwid facelift is supposed
to take some of the factors from the newly launched Renault Triber, keeping the cost in mind. Mainly, it is going to be an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that comes with a parking camera.
Not only this, it will get the digital instrument cluster which is supposed to be the top variant. And this care is going to be gifted with the new steering wheel like from Renault’s seven-seater. Apart from the above-mentioned feature, a larger part of the inside remains unchanged.
Let’s head to the other mode. Well, the Kwid Facelift is going to remain the mirror image of the outgoing model. It will have the same power as 54hp, 0.8 litres and the 68hp. It still will have the 1.0 litre 3 cylinder petrol engines. You will be able to see the gearbox options. This will have a 5-speed manual or you can find 5 speed AMT just like the present model. Initially, the Kwid’s engines will have BS4 complaint. This will be done for making the model competitive. This BS4 compliant version is slated to appear with the brand nearly around April 2020.
The Renault facelift Kwid features a great way of pacing with the tough competitor making the rounds this year which is Maruti Suzuki S-Presso. It is one of the other competitive budget hatchbacks that will mimic the SUV-like outlook. The mirroring of these models is now becoming the segment of the micro-SUV in the present times.
Speaking of that, the Renault Kwid Facelift is all set to make its debut. It is expected to go on sale offer by earlier next month. It is going to be a productive marketing strategy for the brand. Prices might have a marginal hike on the new enhanced model in comparison to the present edition. It starts with 2.66 lakh ex-showroom as per in Delhi, prices might vary in different locations.
As you have already known that the engine states lack of power, it also has flat spots across the rev range. Thus, if you are on a very tight budget, Kwid 0.8 could be the only option. Again, the Kwid 1.0 is better and compiled with the AMT gearbox making it an efficient city out tour. Having the two AMT variants on sale, the more affordable could the RxT.
