The 1.0-litre version of the Renault Kwid is now available in the RXL variant at an introductory price of Rs 3.54 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). This Kwid 1.0-litre was earlier available only in the top-end RXT and RXT Opt variants.
With the addition of the new RXL variant, the powerful variant of the Renault Kwid has now become more affordable. The RXL 1.0L SCe variant in manual transmission is Rs 22,000 more than the 800cc Kwid. Then, the RXL 1.0L AMT variant is just Rs 30,000 more than the former manual 1.0-litre version.
The 1.0-litre Renault Kwid is powered by a three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol mill. It comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission or an AMT gearbox. This motor produces 68bhp of power and 91Nm of torque, considerably more than the 800’s 54bhp, 72Nm output.
Renault has started offering the RXL trim to enhance the offering for the widely accepted Kwid and also strengthen the carmaker's portfolio in India. It gets the same features from the RXL version of the 800cc version and is a good option for those who are on the search for a more powerful entry-level vehicle.
The ex-showroom New Delhi prices of the new RXL variant of the 1.0-litre Kwid are as follows -
KWID RXL 1.0L SCe variant in manual transmission - Rs 3.54 lakh
KWID RXL 1.0L AMT variant - Rs 3.84 lakh
