The French automobile manufacturer Renault launched its crossover SUV, KWID, in the Indian market in 2015.
Developed under the project code BBA, Renault KWID was the first car following the Common Module Family (CMF) developed by Renault and Nissan.
The 2015 version had 98% of parts localisation and extensive engineering, which was a transformational point for Renault’s market in India. Additionally, it was an unconventional car in its segment due to equipment like digital instrument clusters and multimedia touchscreen.
October 2019 saw Renault KWID’s facelift version launch. The new variant had a new infotainment system, front grille, wheels, and optional passenger-side front airbag.
The new facelift model received interior and exterior updates, but there were no changes to the engine specification.
The exterior has received an all-new front bumper, split headlamp setup, three slat grille, C-shaped LED light guides, and integrated roof spoilers.
The interior modifications include an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Voice Recognition. The facelifted model also got a piano black centre console, digital LED instrument cluster, and reverse parking camera with guidelines.
The Engine Options include a 0.8-litre, three-cylinder petrol motor and a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol motor [799 - 999 cc with 67 BHP].
The transmission options for the Renault KWID facelift include a five-speed manual gearbox and an AMT unit, meaning the possibilities for AMT and Manual transmission.

Additionally, the optimised cabin space has ample storage spaces that include mobile and wallet storage (front console), glove box, parcel shelf, and bottle holders at the front doors. The company released several colour options that are a treat to car enthusiasts: Ice Cool White with Black Roof, Zanskar Blue, Fiery Red, Moonlight Silver, Outback Bronze, and Electric Blue.

The Renault KWID updated model comes with several comforts and safety features that are well above its segment.
The newly introduced dual-tone offers an elevated and classy look to the hatchback. Additionally, the colour variants provide extensive choices.
The safety and comfort features make the ride quality ideal for Indian roads.
Renault KWID’s facelift has a reverse parking camera with guided markings, making parking more accessible and safer.
The added rear power windows and rear armrest make the ride comfortable.
Renault KWID’s four-seater is compact and convenient, making it a boon in the Indian market.
The engine specifications provided are not the best in its segment.
Renault KWID’s make quality has a scope of improvement. Its competitors like Maruti S-Presso offer a better make with high-quality automobile parts.
The AMT transmission option lacks a lot of features that the other cars in the same segment provide.
The SUV-styled car offered practical interiors with driving dynamics that do not conform to the segment standards. Thus, factors like stability, agility, and drivability are affected in the case of Renault KWID.
KWID does not offer ABS with EBD in any of their variants, and the NVH (Noise, Vibration, and Harshness) levels are slightly higher than its competitors.
The steering wheel level of the Renault KWID is non-adjustable, thus limiting the positives it has going for itself.
The Signature Ornate Lighting in the facelifted KWID model makes it stand out from its competitors, which is definitely a positive. Additionally, the MediaNAV Evolution infotainment system prioritises the user’s comfort. The Smart Control Efficiency Engine technology provides an accurate air-to-fuel ratio monitoring that one can efficiently utilise to optimise performance. Additionally, the Renault KWID model offers a good ground clearance of 184mm, optimal boot space (279 litres expandable up to 620 litres), and decent leg space, making it a comfortable car. Apart from the features mentioned, the high RPM, milage, and top-of-the-line safety features are benefits that one cannot ignore. The car's most notable feature is the price range offered in its segment, as the features are comparable to high-end hatchbacks.
The KWID pushes Renault’s and the segment’s set boundaries in terms of design, safety, and technology. If you can make do without driving dynamics, the Renault KWID should undoubtedly be yours. The striking design, light controls, and good absorbent qualities make a stronger case for the Renault KWID. Unlike other facelift models, the new three-slat grille with chrome accents and reimagined front bumper distinguishes it from its competitors. Additionally, the redesigned wheel covers add to its profile making it more desirable.
