The French car manufacturer Renault has launched the new Kwid in India starting from Rs 2.83 lakh to Rs 4.84 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Kwid has enjoyed a decent share of success in the hatchback market. Let’s see what the all-new Kwid has to offer in terms of design and features.
Renault has given two engine options for the Kwid, an 800c petrol engine and a 1.0-litre petrol engine. The 3 cylinder 800cc petrol engine produces 54 PS of power and 72 Nm of torque and the DOHC 4 cylinder 1.0-litre petrol engine produces 68 PS of power and 91 Nm of torque. Also, the 1.0-litre SCe petrol engine gets an option to choose between the Easy-R 5-speed AMT gearbox and the 5-speed manual gearbox, whereas the 800cc petrol engine only gets a 5-speed manual. However, the AMT gearbox option is only available in the RXT and the Climber trim.
The Renault Kwid has a boot size of 279 litres, which can be expanded up to 620 litres. Also, the fuel tank capacity is of 28 litres. There are many first-in-class features like the Silver Streak LED DRLs, tail lamps with C-shaped LED light, LED digital instrument cluster that comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a reverse parking camera with adaptive guidelines. As far as exterior design goes, the all-new Kwid gets a 184mm ground clearance with new 14-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. The all-new KWID has the best-in-class ownership cost in its segment.
It also comes with 4 years or 1 lakh km (whichever is earlier) warranty and offers 24X7 Road Side Assistance (RSA) at no extra cost. This includes the regular 2 years or 50,000 km comprehensive warranty along with a complimentary additional 2 years or 50,000 km extended warranty. The Renault Kwid will be offered in Zanskar Blue – the new addition, Fiery Red, Moonlight Silver, Ice Cool White, Outback Bronze, and Electric Blue. Apart from that, the customers can also choose from Renault’s accessories packs such as Essential pack, SUV pack, Chrome pack and Urban pack.
