European car manufacturer Renault has launched the BSVI compliant variants of the Renault Kwid and Triber in India. The manufacturer will also be introducing the BSVI emission compliant variants of the Duster and Captur before the set BSVI deadline in order to keep their commitment with the Govt of India’s latest emission standards for environmentally friendly vehicles. Both the Kwid and the Triber are now available for sale with the BSVI emission compliant engine across all variants.
The Triber will be powered by the company’s same ‘ENERGY” engine which has now been upgraded to comply with the stringent emission norms.

The Kwid will also be available with a BSVI engine across the range in both the 0.8-litre and the 1.0-litre engine. The power figures on the Kwid also remain the same, just like the Triber. The Renault Kwid is powered by a 799cc three-cylinder engine that produces 54 PS of power and a 999cc three-cylinder engine that produces 68 PS of power and 98 Nm of torque.
