The Kwid was released in September 2015 and it has done great for Renault in terms of sales and appeal of the brand. A lot so, that it became the second very popular entry-level hatchback in India after Maruti Suzuki’s Alto 800. There were reports back during this month that a 1.0-litre variation of the Kwid is set to strike roads this month and now, the firm has informed that the date is August 22, 2016.

Renault had first previewed the version, called Kwid SCe, during the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. There is no significant difference between the new Kwid and the present one, except ‘SCe’ decals on the door cladding, two-tone ORVMs and SCe badging on the boot cover. The interiors, however, are expected to stay identical.

The significant modification is under the hood, which is going be a 999 cc three-cylinder engine that is anticipated to provide 67 horse power and 91 Nm of torque and will come with a 5-speed manual transmission.
