Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

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.

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