Renault Kwid gets fresh styling, and more features. Launch soon

Undisguised spy shots of the facelifted Renault Kwid Climber hatchback have emerged online. The official launch is expected to happen soon.

Changes to the exterior include a split-headlamp design-the LED DRLs are positioned beside the front grille with headlamp unit placed lower on the front bumper in a deep recess.

At the back, it features new details in the tail-lamps and new light reflectors. Additionally, it also sports a new design for the alloy wheels that are finished in a gunmetal grey shade.

The spied car also gets faux skid plates, body cladding, roof rails and orange accents, all of which are expected to be exclusive to the Climber variant.

Inside, the refreshed Kwid is expected to get the new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with a parking camera, the digital instrument cluster (at least on top variants) and the new steering wheel from Renault’s new seven-seater. Apart from this, the interior will remain largely unchanged.

Mechanically, the Kwid facelift will remain identical to the outgoing model and will be powered by the same 54hp, 0.8-litre and the 68hp, 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engines. Gearbox options will include a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT as before. Expect BS6-compliant versions to be launched.
