Spec comparison – Maruti Suzuki Alto Vs Renault Kwid Vs Datsun redi-GO

Maruti Suzuki, a leading car manufacturer in the country has further strengthened its foothold in the entry-level segment with the launch of the new Alto. All three cars namely – Maruti Suzuki Alto, Renault Kwid and Datsun redi-GO are powered by a 0.8-litre engine, however, what distinguishes them from the other is their unique set of features. Read below to learn more about the key differences between the three cars –


All three cars have distinctive styling highlights. The Alto facelift gets a new fascia with redesigned grille and updated bumper. Maruti Suzuki has also tweaked the side fenders to distinguish it from its predecessor. Of the three cars on the list, the Alto gets the most modest design update.  

The Renault Kwid distinguishes itself in the entry-level segment with a muscular SUV-inspired body style. The forward leaning stance and flared wheel arches highlight its sporty aesthetics. Interestingly, this is the first car in the Indian market to debut with the French automaker’s honeycomb grille and new headlight design featuring a C-shaped chrome trim. 

Datsun redi-GO is the tall boy in the lot. The hatchback gets a meshed hexagonal grille, wedged headlamps, creased bumpers with faux skid plate, boomerang-shaped tail lights and a protruding tailgate. The compact and stylish product from Datsun especially appeals to the younger lot of car buyers in the country. 


The new Maruti Suzuki Alto is powered by the same 796cc petrol engine that produces 47bhp. However, this time around the engine complies with the new BSVI emission norms. The cabin gets dual tone finish with new air-con ducts and a stylish speedometer. The new front and rear bottle holders also add practicality to the updated interiors. Moreover, the new Alto gets the Smart Play Dock with Bluetooth connectivity. This Smart Play Dock transforms the phone into a touch interface to access calls, music, navigation and more. The keyless entry is also part of the update.   

The Renault Kwid gets a piano black cabin with chrome inserts to give it a premium feel. But being a strict budget car, the equipment list is short but sweet. The top-spec variant gets a seven-inch touchscreen Media-Nav system, digital instrument cluster, remote keyless entry with central locking and one-touch lane change indicator.

The redi-GO from Datsun gets a modest black interior with surprisingly more space for the occupants. Getting in and out of it is effortless thanks to the high stance and the fairly large glass area (especially for a small car) aids visibility all around. 


The Alto is powered by a 796cc petrol engine that generates 48bhp at 6000rpm and 69Nm of torque at 3500rpm. The 0.8-litre engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission. 

The Renault Kwid and the Datsun redi-GO share the same 799cc petrol engine that generates 53bhp at 5678rpm and 72Nm of torque at 4386rpm. The small engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission.
