The updated 2022 Renault Kwid gets new variants and some new colour schemes.
Renault has launched the 2022 Kwid at a starting price of ₹4.49 lakh. For reference, the outgoing 2021 range carried a starting price of ₹4.24 lakh (all figures are ex-showroom). It means that the starting price has increased by around ₹25,000. That's because the 2022 Kwid has ditched the earlier RXE base trim, and the line-up now starts from the RXL trim. You can check out the variant-wise pricing for further clarity. The standard range (non-Climber versions) benefits from a new mid-spec RXL (O) trim, which is available with both the 0.8-litre MT and 1.0-litre MT powertrain options. So, essentially, there are two new variants – 0.8 RXL (O) MT and 1.0 RXL (O) MT. Renault, however, has not listed the specific feature additions in the RXL(O) trim. A closer look at the variant line-up also reveals the rejigged trims.
The Kwid Climber, meanwhile, gets two new colour schemes – Metal Mustard and Ice Cool White, with a black-painted roof (dual-tone) and a Moonlight Silver & Zanskar Blue scheme (monotone). The former option also gets new dual-tone flex wheel covers.
Safety-wise, the 2022 Kwid offers seat belt pre-tensioners as standard. Earlier, the feature was standard only for the driver's seat belt.
Other than these additions, the 2022 Kwid offers the same features and equipment list of the outgoing range.
