    Renault Kwid, Triber, Kiger: get RDE-compliant engines

    The three models continue to be powered by their respective petrol engines, which have now been updated to meet the upcoming Real Driving Emission regulations. All three models will be equipped with a self-diagnostic device that will constantly monitor the vehicle’s emission levels while driving, along with other critical emission devices such as the catalytic converter and oxygen sensors. 

    The Triber is powered by a 72hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that’s offered with either a 5-speed manual or AMT gearbox. Meanwhile, the Kiger can also be had with the same naturally aspirated engine as the Triber that’s only offered with a 5-speed manual. The Kiger also gets the option of the 100hp, 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that’s paired to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT transmission.

    Interestingly, Renault has also introduced a new RXE variant of the Kwid which is priced at Rs 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom, India) and gets the 1.0-litre petrol-manual powertrain. This variant now acts as the entry-level version of the Kwid, replacing the previous RXL variant that got the 0.8-litre powertrain. Therefore, Renault has effectively dropped the 800cc engine entirely from its line-up due to low demand.

    Renault Kwid, Triber, Kiger: more standard safety features

    As part of the 2023 model year update, Renault has also made several safety features standard across the three models. These include Electronic Stability Programme (ESP), Hill Start Assist (HSA), Traction Control System (TCS) and a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

    Moreover, the Kwid now gets convenience features like LED turn indicators on the wing mirrors and steering-mounted controls. Meanwhile, the Triber MPV now gets chrome-finished door handles and new seat upholstery.
