Renault Kwid Sells 1 Lakh Units Since Launch
The Kwid Has Achieved This Feat In Just 14 Months!
The SUV-inspired design, with the smoked headlamps and the matte-black cladding clicked with the masses at large. To back that up, Renault loaded the Kwid with goodies like a touchscreen music system with navigation and a digital instrument cluster. Renault got the basics of cabin and boot space right as well, which appealed to the practical lot as well.
The Kwid was initially available with a sole 0.8-litre motor that developed 54PS and 72Nm. Building on its success, Renault introduced a 1.0-litre variant of the Kwid earlier this year. To cement the Kwid’s positioning as a city runabout, an automated manual transmission was added to the feature list last month as well. You can read our reviews of the Kwid by following these links:

Prices for the Kwid start at Rs 2.64 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 4.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The baby Renault takes on the likes of the Hyundai Eon, the Maruti Suzuki Alto twins as well as its own sibling, the Datsun redi-GO.
