As one can tell, there are very little differences when compared to the Kwid 0.8 variant currently sold. The only couple of features that the Kwid 1.0 has for differentiation are a black and white chequered decal with a ‘1.0’ lettering on the lower portion of its side profile and silver ORVM caps. Renault does, however, offer a wide variety of accessories for further personalization.

The interior is largely identical to the Kwid 0.8. It will only be sold in RxT and RxT (O) grades, with a 7 inch MEDIANAV touchscreen display, fabric seat upholstery with red inserts, front power windows and an optional driver’s airbag.

The Kwid 1.0 is claimed to offer a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio of 97 PS/tonne and fuel efficiency of 23.01 km/L.
