Small cars are always in demand in Indian market. We have been witnessed of Maruti’s success of Maruti 800 and then Alto. Indian roads and conditions of traffic are very disturbing for drivers and regular users. For such people small cars always make more sense as traffic and low maintenance keep their cars on the go always. That was the reason all automobile companies have very good models in small hack back cars and most of them are having good market shares.
It is currently priced between Rs 2.8 L and Rs 4.1 L (Ex-Showroom Price, New Delhi) but the price will vary according to the place.
Renault Kwid has been considered in segment of small hatchback cars where very good market share is there for Alto 800, Eon and now some part of Duston Go. But main advantage over other cars, Kwid is having very aggressive price which ultimately giving very good share.
Kwid is having amazing look and coming with 6 different color variant which is highly appreciated from the market. With very large boot space Kwid can be considered one of the best cars in this segment. Kwid is having very good distance from rear and front wheel base so space inside car is very comfortable for passengers. Though back space is not that enough for three people.
Renault kwid is coming with engine option petrol. Petrol version is having 12V engine with very good torque creation and good combustion efficiency to get overall the best performance.
Petrol model are having four variants starting from basic model STD, RXE, RXL and RXT. RXT is top model.
Renault has added features like keyless entry, automatic climate control, push button start on the top end model. Dual airbags will be standard. In Back seats legroom is good, though, three people might find it a bit tight sitting abreast.
