Thanks to BHPian ShubhamGhute for sharing these images with other enthusiasts.

Last month, the first spy images of the Renault Kwid facelift had surfaced online. The car has now been spotted again, but this time the test mule appears to be of a lower variant.

The test vehicle has a redesigned front grille with LED daytime running lights on either side, while the main headlamp clusters are positioned lower down. It has black ORVM housings and is riding on steel wheels. The car that was spotted last month had silver ORVMs, a red roof and silver wheel caps. 

The Kwid facelift is likely to get BS-VI compliant engines. At present, Renault offers a 799cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine that makes 54 BHP @ 5,678 rpm and 72 Nm of torque @ 4,386 rpm and a 999 cc, 3-cylinder petrol unit puts out 67 BHP @ 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm @ 4,250 pm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT.
