After a bunch of leaks and teasers, Renault has launched the 2019 KWID in India at a starting price of Rs. 2.83 lakh. The facelifted model, offered in five trims, comes with a bunch of design and interior updates while retaining the mechanical specifications of its predecessor. Meanwhile, the bookings for the 2019 KWID are live via company's official website and dealerships. Here's more.
The 2019 KWID looks largely similar to the City KZ-E, the all-electric hatchback that debuted in China this year. It sports a compact design with a cascading grille, headlamps mounted on the front bumpers, and LED DRLs placed on the upper unit. Further, the car gets blacked-out wheels as well as wheel arches, and orange accents on roof rails, ORVMs, and around the headlights.
Inside, the facelifted KWID sports a dual-tone cabin with black and orange color schemes, revamped AC vents, and new steering wheel. The hatchback sports a digital instrument cluster as well as an 8-inch infotainment system with support for connectivity features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Further, it gets safety features like ABS, EBD, dual front airbags (on top variants), and rear parking sensors.
The 2019 Renault KWID is offered in 0.8-liter and 1.0-liter BS4-compliant petrol engine options. The former is capable of producing 54PS of power and 72Nm of peak torque, while the latter churns out 68PS and 91Nm. The smaller unit is offered with a five-speed manual gearbox and the bigger 1.0-liter mill is available with both manual as well as automatic transmission options.
The 2019 Renault KWID is offered in five variants: Standard, RxE, RxL, RxT and Climber. The entry-level Standard model with manual gearbox is priced at Rs. 2.83 lakh, while the top-of-the-line Climber variant with automatic transmission costs Rs. 4.84 lakh. At this price point, the hatchback goes up against rivals such as Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, Datsun redi-GO, and Maruti Suzuki Alto K10.
