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.

To launch in Brazil in H2 2016.

Renault has also launched a microsite for prospective customers of the Kwid to register for more information.

The Renault Kwid will be locally-assembled in Brazil with parts imported from the model’s production hub in India, where the underlying CMF-A platform has been highly-localized. To meet the strict Latin NCAP regulations, the Brazilian-spec Kwid was co-developed by Renault Technology Americas (RTA) and Renault Design Latin America (RDLA). It will feature four airbags and ABS as well as a slightly modified body structure.

Spyshots have revealed that the exterior of the Kwid will be largely similar to the model sold in India, save for redesigned side moulding, black plastic accent across the c-pillar, and slightly tweaked bumpers & wheel arches. Reports suggest that the interior of the local-spec Kwid will have better build quality, and the instrument cluster will consist of analogue dials and an MID, rather than a full digital display in the India-spec model.
