Renault Kwid 1.0-litre Photo Gallery

Renault Kwid 1.0-litre Photo Gallery

Renault India has just launched the Kwid 1-litre at a rather tempting ex-showroom Delhi price range of Rs 3.83 and Rs 3.96 lakh. In essence, this new version is a gutsier, more fun to drive iteration of the standard 800cc Kwid.

Here’s a closer look at this freshly launched Alto K10 rival.

The Kwid 1-litre is powered by a 68bhp, 999cc, three-cylinder engine which has been tuned to deliver more low-end and mid-range punch compared to the standard 800cc model.

While the engine is all new, Renault is using the same 5-speed gearbox that’s also found in the 800cc Kwid. The car is 40kg heavier than the 800cc model because of the bigger engine.

Some might find it disappointing that Renault has made only a couple of design upgrades for the 1-litre Kwid. There are silver housings for the wing mirrors, chequered decals on the sides and that’s about it.  

The Kwid’s power-to-weight ratio stands at 97bhp per tonne, making it the highest in its class. What adds to the overall lightness is the super light steering and gearshift.

Inside, there is no visual change which means you get the same single tone minimalistic dashboard that’s dominated by a large touchscreen infotainment system.

The all-digital instrument console is well detailed and features a speedometer, fuel gauge, distance to empty, average fuel consumption and some more.

The 300-litre boot is the biggest in its class and by a sizeable margin. What’s more, the Kwid is the longest and the widest among its rivals, at 3,679mm and 1,579mm respectively. 

The Kwid 1-litre is now on sale and competes with cars like the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, Wagon R and the Hyundai Eon 1.0 in the 1-litre hatchback segment.
