A camouflaged version of Renault Kwid Facelift has been spotted testing. The design seems inspired by the recently unveiled Renault City KZ-E electric car.
Renault Kwid Facelift made its debut in 2015 and the car is doing well in terms of sales as well as it’s urban design part. However, come 2020 you may see a facelifted Renault Kwid which will mostly see-through design changes at the front with a split end headlamp design inspired by the Renault City K-ZE electric vehicle which made its debut at Shanghai Motor Show.
The front end of the facelifted Kwid looks more agile now, thanks to the new front grille design. The sides of the Kwid seems plain like the current on-going model and still doesn’t get the alloy wheels. The rear end of the facelifted Kwid gets a slight change in rear bumper design and tail lights.
The interiors of the Kwid will see changes in the dashboard and a new infotainment system supporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as well. Rear AC vents can also be seen for the facelifted model.
The quality of the material is also to be improved than the current model. Renault Kwid hosts numerous features for safety like parking sensors, reverse parking camera, driver and passenger seat belt alert and ABS with EBD are some of the safety features that the current model have.
According to the pictures, the facelifted model looks slightly bigger than the ongoing Kwid which easily translates to a lot more space on the inside of the entry-level hatchback. The facelifted Kwid is believed to have new chassis which will strengthen the car more and meet the crash test requirement for the Indian market.
