In terms of dimensions, the new 2019 Kwid has grown longer. It’s because of the additional cladding and redesigned bumpers, which now also accommodate the main headlamps. The height is lower now for some reason. The ground clearance is 4mm more and the boot space is 21 litres less than before. The bigger tyres and wheels contribute towards increasing the ground clearance while the requirement of larger wheel marginally wells eat into the boot space.

The fuel tank capacity, wheelbase and width remain unchanged.
