It’s a second innings for the Kwid in our long term garage and this time around we have inducted the 1.0-litre Easy-R AMT into our fleet. This 1.0-litre engines put out 67bhp/91Nm and makes use of a five-speed automated manual transmission. We are driving the top-of-the-line RXT (O) variant and this gets a driver’s side airbag, AC, touchscreen infotainment system with USB and AUX-IN.
At the time of writing this report, this variant of the Kwid has been priced at Rs 4.53 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The selling point is, of course, the AMT that’s controlled via a dial on the dashboard. And it is as simple as that, call it if you will dial and go. Also, its other main selling point is its mini-SUV looks which should come in handy when you need to brag a bit on social media because #SUVS is the new trend.
