Renault Kwid comes with an option of two petrol engines but Maruti Suzuki S-presso have only engine option. But the engine on S-Presso is BS-6 compliant while Renault Kwid still continues to offer BS-4 engine. Engine power on both the cars are pretty much same.
When it comes to exterior here I think Renault Kwid is a winner. Renault Kwid have very stylish & modern looking front face while S-presso have slightly upright stance and it looks boxy. Both the cars have 180 mm of ground clearance but Renault Kwid is 100mm longer than S-presso. There are tons of styling updates on Kwid like alloy wheels, beautiful grill and dual tone colour scheme. On S-presso one will get steel wheels and not alloy wheels even as an option .
Maruti has tried to make the S-Presso fancier on the inside as well, replicating the Mini Cooper layout in the Central console. Though, the layout looks quite smart, the all-black colour theme takes away the sense of space in an otherwise fairly spacious cabin. On the other hand The Renault Kwid gets all-black interiors and crossway fabric upholstery with red outline. The Renault Kwid Climber also gets all-black treatment along with orange highlights on the dash, seats and door pads which make it look funky. It also gets piano black touches on the central console and leather wrapped steering wheel. The all-new Kwid also offers best-in-class boot space of 279 litres, which is expandable up to 620 litres.
Step-in and you will be able to notice multiple updates in Kwid. To begin with, there is a new larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit (borrowed from the Triber) which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The steering wheel too has been redesigned and the instrument cluster is now a full-digital unit.Upholstery options have also received an update which help to bring in a fresh-feel to the cabin. S-Presso gets the same Smartplay 2.0 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system from the new WagonR and Baleno which is an inch smaller compared the Kwid. It comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other features, include phone assistance, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, front power windows, HVAC, 12V power socket and rear parcel tray among others.
