Renault surely knows how to keep their customers entertained. The French Automaker launched their entry level product KWID almost two years ago in India and to celebrate its second anniversary they have introduced yet another special edition variant based on the same hatchback. Now the reason why we are calling yet another variant is that there are plenty of Renault variants available in India already. However, this new edition joins the long list of KWID hatchback again.
Called the KWID 02 Anniversary Special Edition. This particular edition as usual and expected comes with plenty of cosmetic updates to its exterior as well as interior. Unfortunately just like every other special edition cars available in India the KWID 02 anniversary edition does not get any mechanical changes under the hood. However, it is available with both with 0.8-Litre & 1.0-Litre variants but only with the RXL and RXT trims.
So by paying all the extra money find out what you are actually getting with this special edition KWID
The KWID features contrasting 02 insignia on the hood and the iconic Sportline graphics on the roof and C-pillar. This special edition hatchback is available only with two colour options including Fiery Red and Ice Cool White. Besides the attractive and sporty graphics some other new additions that you will notice include new sportline painted wheels with wheel cover finished in Red. The faux skid plates at the front also look slightly different than the standard ones that you will find in the regular car.
Just like the exterior the interior too gets few cosmetic updates of its own. To start with this particular variant continues with the 02 theme. The floor mats and the fabric seats get the 02 logo which goes well with the overall theme. Unfortunately, that is all you get inside the cabin, however, the 02n anniversary edition like we already mentioned above is available with the RXL and RXT trims thus it gets touchscreen MediaNAV as standard while the digital instrument cluster further helps in maintaining the overall sporty theme of the car.
Unfortunately, you won’t find any changes under the hood, and thus the KWID continues to be powered by the same 0.8-litre unit which delivers around 54PS of peak power and 72Nm, while the 1.0-litre version produces 68PS of peak power and 91Nm of torque. Both the engines are paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. Unfortunately, you won’t be getting an AMT transmission option with this car.
