Renault Kwid, the entry-level compact hatchback from the leading French automobile manufacturer, has crossed the three lakh milestone in sales figures. The car was launched in India in 2015. The Kwid series, in the last four years, has been bolstered with an automatic manual transmission (AMT), the introduction of the ‘Climber’ model, and a number of safety upgrades.




The Kwid is available in two powertrain options. The 800cc petrol motor produces 55PS maximum power and 72Nm peak torque. The bigger 1.0-litre petrol engine, on the other hand, produces 68PS power and 91Nm peak torque. Both engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gear system. The 5-speed AMT option is available only with the 1.0-litre engine. Renault claims that the car offers a mileage of 21.7-25.17kmpl depending on the version.




The Renault Kwid’s safety features include antilock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD), driver-side airbag, seatbelt reminder for driver and front left hand side passenger, an over-speeding alert system, and rear parking sensors. Some of the unique features of the car include a 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and a rear camera. The car also has a rear centre armrest, a rear charging socket, and a digital speedometer.




Renault has started working on the facelift version of the Kwid hatchback and the vehicle has already been spotted testing in India. The car’s new model borrows a number of design elements from the City KZ-E all-electric hatchback. The latter vehicle was showcased at the 2019 Auto Shanghai. The all-electric car is expected to be rolled out in India soon. The Kwid facelift version, meanwhile, is expected to be commercially available from the upcoming festive season in October-November. The car would command a higher ex-showroom price than its current version.

The Kwid is currently priced at ₹2.76 lakh ex-showroom for the entry-level model.
