Inside the cabin, there are minor changes made to the dashboard and gets a new fully digital speedometer. Features on the top-spec trim include an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, Rear Parking Camera and all-four Power Windows.
The 800cc three-cylinder petrol engine of Kwid produces 54 BHP and 72 Nm of peak torque. The bigger 1.0 Litre three-cylinder petrol motor produces 68 BHP and 91 Nm of peak torque. You get the option of a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT, but the 800cc variants only get the manual gearbox.
