Renault will further widen the Kwid’s outreach by offering a more-powerful 1.0L variant, reportedly, which will have a 5-speed AMT option, ABS and dual airbags. It is expected to break cover at the Auto Expo 2016 in February. The Kwid will also make its Brazilian premiere this year, while exports to Zambia from India are also underway.
