Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.

Kwid 1L to launch in June, reportedly.

Anything on Wheels has spotted the Renault Kwid SCe (1L) and a regular Renault Kwid with alloys testing in Chennai. The Kwid 1L is expected to launch in June 2016.

The Kwid spotted along with the 1L model was riding on alloy wheels that could be offered later in its lifecycle.

The 1.0-liter engine on the Kwid is based on the same engine family as the 0.8-liter three-cylinder engine which powers the small car currently. The 0.8-liter variant develops 54 PS and 72 Nm of torque, and delivers a class-leading fuel efficiency of 25.17 km/l.

The other Kwid spotted along with the 1L model was riding on alloy wheels similar to the set featured in a fully accessorized model at the Auto Expo 2016, which suggests that Renault could introduce a new top-end variant of the regular Kwid. If so, it will likely offer the said alloy wheels, possibly dual airbags and ABS.

The Renault Kwid 1.0-liter will rival the Maruti Alto K10 and the 1.0-liter variant of the Eon. It will also be the model that is exported to South American and European markets as components.

Rivals: Maruti Alto K10, Hyundai Eon 1L
Expected Release Date: June 2016
