Here’s How The Facelifted Kwid’s Interior Looks Like


As speculated, the hatchback comes with a larger infotainment system, new steering wheel and an instrument cluster borrowed from the Triber

  • The cabin of the Kwid Climber Edition has been spied sans camouflage.
  • It gets the Triber’s Media Nav Evolution touchscreen infotainment system.
  • The rotary dial for Renault Easy R AMT is now positioned between the front seats.
  • It gets a new steering wheel and Kwid embossing on the dashboard too.
  • The facelifted hatchback is set to be launched by the end of October.

As Maruti gears to launch the S-Presso, Renault has been busy preparing the Kwid facelift. Recently, we spotted the Kwid facelift undergoing tests and got you pictures of the changes on the exterior. Now, new spy shots have surfaced online, revealing the cabin of the new Kwid. Here’s what you can expect:

Firstly, the hatchback gains a new 8-inch touchscreen that looks like the Media Nav Evolution touchscreen infotainment system from the Triber MPV. The next thing you notice from the spy shots is the new steering wheel which sports a dark gunmetal-finished insert. Next up is the new instrument cluster featuring a central multi-info display (MID) from the Triber. The dashboard layout has been tweaked a bit and it now resembles the City K-ZE all-electric hatchback sold in China.

The aircon controls have been moved further downwards with the power-window and hazard switches placed above it. The lower dashboard now features a different glove box design and it also gets ‘Kwid’ embossing on the passenger side dashboard. Another significant change includes the repositioning of the AMT rotary dial from the dashboard to the conventional location between the front seats.

The exterior of the Kwid was spied earlier and it stays in tune with the City K-ZE. New split-headlamps with LED DRLs, a refreshed grille, different lower bumper designs and a new set of alloy wheels are the main changes. The rear also mirrors the front with redesigned bumpers and slightly reworked tail lamps.The Alto rival is expected to retain the 800cc engine that develops 54PS/72Nm and the 1.0-litre unit good for 68PS/91Nm. It remains to be seen whether the engines will be BS6-compliant at the time of launch, but expect them to be BS6-ready. A 5-speed manual gearbox will be common to both engines while the 5-speed AMT will most likely be paired up with the 1.0-litre engine.

 

The Kwid facelift is expected to carry a premium over the current pricing which ranges from from Rs 2.76 lakh to Rs 4.76 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Key rivals include the Maruti Suzuki Alto, Datsun redi-GO and the much-anticipated Maruti Suzuki S-Presso.
