Renault Kwid to be launched tomorrow

Renault Kwid to be launched tomorrow

Renault will launch the Kwid for the Indian market tomorrow, at an event in Delhi. The new small hatchback will go up against the Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Hyundai Eon.

The Renault Kwid is based on the modular CMF-A platform and is the first car to be based on this platform. It is inspired by Renault's global design language, compact in size and rides on 13-inch wheels. The car's black grille can be customised with chrome embellishments. In fact, Renault has introduced various accessories packages to customise the vehicle. The headlamps are inspired from larger SUVs and the wheel arches and body cladding are a testimony to the fact that Renault wants to promote the vehicle as a modern, bold and aggressive vehicle.

Coming to the cabin of the Kwid, the equipment and feature list is something that no other car gets from the company's car line-up as of now. Many features like a seven-inch infotainment system and sat-nav are a segment first. The car gets a digital instrument cluster as standard, but airbags are optional.

The Kwid is powered by a 799cc three-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 54bhp of power and 75Nm of torque. This unit comes mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The car weighs only 660kg and thanks to this lightweight construction, Renault has been able to get a fuel efficiency of 25.1kmpl from this car.

The Renault Kwid is expected to be slotted in the Rs 3 lakh to Rs 4 lakh price bracket and exact variant-wise prices will be available tomorrow at the launch. It would be interesting to see if Renault manages to undercut the pricing of the Kwid's competitors, which will make the Kwid one of the best entry-level hatchbacks offered in India.
