The Kwid facelift borrows plenty of elements from its electric cousin, the City K-ZE. The most striking changes include the new split-headlight setup, bigger grille and revised lower bumper design with a skid plate. The side profile looks more or less the same with the only change being the new 14-inch wheels with 165/70 rubber. At the rear, the changes resemble the front with a redesigned bumper, faux skid plates and slightly reworked tail lamps with LED elements.

Sizewise, the Kwid facelift is longer than the model it replaces and has a higher ground clearance as well. However, it is a tad shorter than its predecessor. Have a look at the table to see how the facelifted model fares against its predecessor in the dimensions department:

On the inside, the hatchback gets a new 8-inch Media Nav Evolution touchscreen infotainment system from the Triber MPV. Other changes include a new steering wheel and a new instrument cluster featuring a central multi-info display (MID) from the Triber. The dashboard layout has also been tweaked a bit and it now resembles the City K-ZE all-electric hatchback sold in China. Carryover features include power windows, active keyless entry and manual HVAC.

While Renault has retained the 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre petrol engine options, both still BS4 compliant. The 0.8-litre develops 54PS and 72Nm while the larger 1.0-litre engine develops 68PS and 91Nm. Transmission options remain unchanged with a 5-speed manual gearbox offered as standard while an AMT is available with the 1.0-litre unit.

The refreshed Kwid takes on the likes of the Datsun redi-GO and the recently launched Maruti Suzuki S-Presso. Stay tuned to ZigWheels for a detailed comparison report of these entry-level hatchbacks.
