It really seems like Renault is having supply issues for the Renault Kwid Climber AMT. I've had finance approved for a mine since mid-November, but Renault can only source me one by the end of January 2020 (or beginning Feb)! Being without transport over the festive season sucks!

Has the facelifted Kwid got a stronger body or is it the same body that crumples terribly

Depends where it's built it seems. Some reports say it's stronger apparently, but I'd wait for the NCAP results.

I saw an accident involving an Oxblood Kwid and an older model Silver Mazda 3. Both cars were crumpled like aluminium foil (frontal impact ~60km/h). Nobody was badly hurt luckily.

Pity if it's still the same... the new facelift looks pretty good inside and out. Definitely a car I WOULD HAVE recommended to people buying in this segment if it wasn't for the poor crumple zones

Drove a loaner a few hundred meters then parked it off and got a lift. It was the pre facelift with 2500km. Brakes felt pap and clutch felt well worn. The kicker for me was no re circulate button for the climate control, so it’s always on outside air. I mean how much does a small plastic hinged vent cost.
