It benefits from beefy looks and a high ground clearance of 180 mm. The is decidedly more eye-catching than all of its rivals. Our favorite bit of the Design is the front-end, which gives it a mini-Duster look.
Interior: The interior too look the same as the Kwid 1.0 SCe MT model. However, it gets the rotary gear selector on its centre console. Apart from this, the cabin remains bog similar. It continues to impress with its spaciousness. The boot capacity of 300-litres is among the biggest highlights. The cabin boasts good levels of quality for a car in this class.
