The main aim of the Kwid facelift is to offer an SUV-inspired city car to the customers

Renault Kwid first launched in 2015, the hatchback performed exceptionally well sales to Renault initially, but it failed to continue its charm as it started nearing the middle of its lifecycle. The main focus of the 2020 Kwid facelift is to offer an SUV-inspired city car to the customers.

The hatchback to get upgraded with a new MediaNav infotainment system, instrument cluster and upholstery

The all-new 2020 Renault Kwid will come equipped with a new radiator grille, two-tier front light setup, new lower grille comprising three horizontal slats, restyled bumpers, new wheel caps and tweaked tail lamps. Moreover, the hatchback will also offer LED DRLs which looks quite upmarket. The facelifted Kwid carries some subtle tweaks on the inside. We expect that the hatchback to get upgraded with a new MediaNav infotainment system, instrument cluster and upholstery.
