Renault Kwid Colombia

Elcarrocolombiano has posted more up close spyshots of the Renault Kwid spotted testing with camouflage in Colombia. It appears to be identical the Brazil-spec Renault Kwid, which has been slightly re-engineered for better safety.

Renault to sell the Kwid in Colombia too, apparently.

The Renault Kwid went on sale in India in 2015, and only a few global markets have received the low-cost vehicle. One of the future markets is Colombia, where the car was recently spied in Bogota, courtesy el carro colombiano.

The camouflage on the test mule spotted in Colombia suggests that the car is probably a facelifted model. However, the more likely possibility is that Renault is just hiding some market-specific changes. Also, the Renault Kwid is still in the early stage of its lifecycle to receive a facelift or even to start undergoing tests with the changes planned for the mid-cycle update.

Colombia should get the safer and more premium, South American-spec Renault Kwid that will go on sale in Brazil later this year. Expect the 1.0-litre SCe model as the standard offering. The 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine develops 68 PS (67.04 hp) at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm and is available with a 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed automated manual transmission in India. The Colombian-spec 1.0-litre SCe engine could develop 79 hp, though.
