The 2020 Renault Kwid has been spotted again but it's for the very first time that the base variant of the new model has been seen testing
French carmaker Renault is testing the 2020 Renault Kwid facelift, which is expected to get launched by the end of this year. The test mule has been spied on the public roads yet again. In the latest spy images, the prototype employs steel wheels along with blacked out wing mirrors instead of two-tone glossy ORVMs, which clearly signifies that this is the base variant of the updated 2020 Kwid. While the test mule features ORVMs on both the sides, the base variant of the pre-facelift Kwid misses out on passenger-side ORVM.

On the outside, the new-gen 2020 Renault Kwid will employ a new radiator grille, two-tier front light setup, LED DRLs, new lower grille including three horizontal slats, redesigned bumpers and slightly updated tail lights. The interesting fact is, even the base variant of the car offers LED DRLs. We expect that the hatchback will get upgraded with a new MediaNav infotainment system, a revised instrument cluster and new upholstery.
The new-gen Renault Kwid will get a price tag somewhere between Rs 2.75 lakh and INR 3.00 lakh.
The 2020 Renault Kwid derives power from the same 0.8- and 1.0-litre SCe three-cylinder petrol motors. Both the petrol engines in the facelifted Kwid will be BS-VI compliant. The 0.8-litre, three-cylinder engine is good at churning out respective power and torque outputs of 54 Ps and 68 Nm. On the other hand, the more powerful 1.-litre, three-cylinder petrol unit develops 72 Ps of power and 91 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines come adjoined to a 5-speed manual transmission and AMT. The current Renault Kwid model carries a price tag of Rs 2.71 lakh while the facelifted version is expected to demand a bit higher than the outgoing model. It will get a price tag somewhere between Rs 2.75 lakh and INR 3.00 lakh. Renault is also launching its first low-cost MPV in India in July. The new MPV is named the Triber. The Renault Triber sits on a modified version of the Renault Kwid's CMF-A platform. For more updates regarding the 2020 Kwid or Triber MPV stay tuned to Indian Auto.
