Renault Kwid spotted testing in Chennai

Renault’s upcoming budget hatchback, the Kwid, has been spotted testing on the roads of Chennai. Built on a new CMF-A platform, the Kwid will be positioned below the Pulse as the new entry-level model in the French manufacturer’s line-up.

The spy shots preview the SUV-like body style and the typical Renault design language of the Kwid. It gets flared wheel arches and plastic cladding, which give the Kwid a rugged look. The Kwid will be the first ever production model to be based on the Common Module Family-A platform, which was jointly developed by Renault and Nissan. Powering the Kwid is a 57bhp 800cc engine, which has been tuned to extract maximum efficiency out of it. The Kwid will rank high in terms of value for money and the equipment list will include airbags, a digital instrument cluster and a seven inch display with a sat nav system. Besides a manual gearbox, Renault will also offer an AMT transmission in certain variants.

The Kwid will go on sale in the Indian market around September, before the start of the festive season. It will go up against other hatchbacks in this price range like the Datsun GO, Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Hyundai i10 and the Nissan Micra Active.
