The upcoming 2020 Renault Kwid Facelift BS-VI has been spotted while testing in Pune. The spy pics and videos uploaded by Area of Interest on YouTube reveals a partially camouflaged, Climber variant hatchback.

The spy pics reveal that the all new 2020 Renault Kwid was in the middle of testing the BS-VI engine. The test mule that was spotted is the Kwid Climber, that features the 14-inch wheels that are featured on the current-generation hatchback.

The spy pics of the 2020 Renault Kwid reveal that the hatchback was fitted with emission testing equipment at the rear end of the vehicle. Manufacturers usually test vehicles fitted with emission testing equipment to ensure the products meet the current and future emission norms.

According to the video, the engine featured on the all new 2020 Renault Kwid is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that is also featured on the current-generation Kwid hatchbacks. While the engine currently produces 67bhp of power and 91Nm of torque, performance numbers for the new car are still to be revealed.

The spy pics also tell us that the all new 2020 Renault Kwid might feature a redesigned rear bumper. This could possibly mean that the new Kwid will feature a new bumper, a new headlamp assembly, and could feature an LED set up in the front.

Renault is expected to launch the 2020 Kwid at some point next year, and we could expect to see the car at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo.

The current generation Renault Kwid is available in 12 variants. All models available are powered by petrol engines. There are two engines on offer - a 799cc engine that produces 53bhp of power and 72Nm of torque, and a 1.0-litre engine that produces 67bhp of power and 91Nm of torque.

The current-generation Renault Kwid is priced between Rs 2.83 and Rs 4.92 lakh. We expect the all new 2020 Renault Kwid to be priced between Rs 3.25 lakh and Rs 5.55 lakh thanks to the upgrades. All prices are ex-showroom, India.

Thoughts About The Spy Pics And Video Of The 2020 Renault Kwid

While the spy pics do not reveal too much, we expect the 2020 Renault Kwid to arrive with some cosmetic changes, and also changes to the interiors. The hatchback has done well in the domestic markets and we expect the new models to perform the same.
