The 2020 facelifted Renault Kwid will be launched in several months. Besides some design updates, the new vehicle will come with BSVI-compliant motors.
Up to date, the Renault Kwid is the only hatchback that has managed to pose a certain degree of threat to the Maruti Alto twins. Nevertheless, with the Marti S-Presso, which is expected to be launched in the coming time, the Kwid’s responsibility has been doubled since it is going to compete against another model from India's largest car manufacturer.
To increase its competitiveness in the entry-level hatchback segment, the Renault Kwid will receive an update in the near future.
Recently, a unit of 2020 Renault Kwid facelift was spied parked next to a Triber without any camouflage. The vehicle was in the Climber trim and featured some tweaks inside out. These upgrades will even occur to other variants of the vehicle.
The 2020 Renault Kwid Climber comes with a thoroughly upgraded front fascia which bears a strong resemblance to that of the K-ZE EV which has just been introduced to the China market. The multi-layer lighting system is the highlight of the front. The Tata Harrier was the first car to come with this lighting system, which can now be seen on the Hyundai Venue, Kia Seltos and MG Hector as well.The headlights are located on the bumper; in the meanwhile, a pair of polishing LED DRLs is at the hood level. The bumper is newly designed and now accommodates a larger grille which is harmonious with Renault’s newest design language. Almost all of the new models from the company carry a similar arrangement.
On the side profile, the facelifted Renault Kwid runs on alloy wheels, which are sure to be available with the Climber trim. This is a long-awaited feature since the Kwid has been offered with steel rims up to now. The rear is equipped with redesigned taillights, mounted on which are C-shaped LED inserts, which serves the purpose of improving the general attraction of the entry-level hatchback.
The side profile of the 2020 Renault Kwid comes with some updated features.
Like the front and the side profile, the rear of the vehicle is also different from the prevvious version.
The cabin of the Renault Kwid facelift will also come with numerous alterations. For instance, the current digital instrument cluster will be substituted with the unit borrowed from the Triber. Besides, the vehicle will even share them same touchscreen infotainment system with its sibling. Other outstanding new interior features of the hatchback include coloured door handles, air conditioning surrounds and gearstick bezel.

The facelifted Renault Kwid continues to be powered by 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre petrol motors, which can generate 54 PS/72 Nm and 68 PS/91 Nm, respectively. While the former is mated to a 5-speed MT, the latter is coupled with a 5-speed MT or AMT. Both of these motors will be updated to comply with the upcoming BS-VI emission standards.
