It is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in 14.7 seconds, before hitting a top speed of 156 km/h.

The model showcased at the venue appears to be the mid-spec Zen grade, which gets a 2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth, rear defogger and wiper. As standard, the Kwid gets colour-coded bumpers, steel 14-spoke wheels with three lug nuts, front seats with fixed headrests and height-adjustable seatbelts.
