Renault has updated its popular Kwid entry-level with bigger 14-inch wheels and most importantly, a new rear axle adding to the safety of the vehicle by improving its road holding.

On the outside, the changes include LED daytime driving lights with a silver streak and tail lamps with LED light guides. 

Inside, there are new chrome finishes and seat fabrics, there's also a new steering wheel and centre fascia.

There's only one engine on offer: a 1.0-litre three-cylinder 50kW and 91Nm. It is paired to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed AMT gearbox.

On the standard specification list includes aircon, electric front and rear windows and electrical adjustable door mirrors. While a new infotainment system with a larger 20cm touchscreen includes a radio and has Bluetooth connectivity, and is even Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible.

The addition of a reverse camera and park distance sensors puts the New Renault K in a league of its own, for complete ease of parking and added peace-of-mind.

On the safety front you'll find two front airbags, for both driver and passenger, while the full range is equipped with ABS brakes.

There's also a one-year insurance cover, two-year service plan, and a five-year or 150 000km warranty.
