“The CEO and Managing Director, Sumit Sawhney of the Renault India has not ruled out the possibility of Automatic Transmission(AMT) for the Kwid in the near future”.
Variants & Design:
Now, let’s talk about the design of the all-new Kwid.
From the Outside, all new Kwid is similar to the present model (800cc) in terms of the design with few little bit changes. The things which changed in the New Kwid is the dual-tone grey-coloured OVRM’s and the SCe’s badge on the Trunk.
From the Inside new Kwid is similar to the older Kwid with Dual Tone dashboard, chrome-accentuated digital instrument cluster, but the sides and centre AC vents will get chrome inserts and seats will come in Champion Red colour.
You can see that there is no much difference in the design of New and Old Kwid , The All new Kwid available in only the Top Variants- RXT & RXT(o) variants which are not good for all the Kwid Lovers.
Price & Safety features:
We expect that when the Renault Kwid 800CC comes with a base price of Rs 2.62-lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) than The New Kwid 1.0L will come with a base price of Rs 3.5-lakh ( ex-showroom Delhi) and for Upper model price will be Rs 6-lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
New Kwid comes with good safety features like Remote keyless entry, Central locking, high mount stop lamp with seat belts for front and rear passengers. However, It also comes with a segment first pro-sense front seat belt function but this is an optional feature.
Mileage & competition:
The all new Kwid with 999CC – 3 cylinder engine will give a superb mileage of 23.01kmpl which is claimed by ARAI but it is 2.16kmpl than the Present model of Kwid(0.8L). With this great Mileage, it will definitely give a good competition to the other cars of the small segment i.e Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon which are the first priority of Indian Small car lovers.
Have a nice day.
