Right after the launch of Suzuki S-Presso, we were left with a bad taste in our mouth.
Fortunately, Renault Kwid Facelift 2019 is here. It’s a much-awaited update to Renault’s popular mini-SUV lineup. Furthermore, the overall styling follows the likes of Hyundai Venue and Tata H5. Moreover, the top-mounted LED DRLs along with low-mounted Headlamp suits it far better!
As for the pricing, 2019 Renault Kwid Facelift price in India starts at INRs. 2.83 Lakhs. Moreover, that’s just the base variant. For the more awesome variant aka ‘The Climber’, Renault Kwid Climber price in India starts at Rs. 4.54 Lakhs.
Perhaps for the first time ever, I would totally recommend the top-variant over everything else. Honestly, it just looks so good! Besides, it comes with major visual changes along with many updated features.
PS: Yes. Renault Kwid Facelift 2019 is better than Suzuki S-Presso!
