Renault Kwid Recalled For Steering Fault

  • Jan 22, 2018

Renault has issued a recall for the Kwid 0.8-litre because of an unspecified issue with the steering assembly. Under the voluntary service campaign, Renault will inspect the steering assembly and replace them, if required, at no extra cost to the owner. The carmaker, however, has not stated which lot of cars have been affected by the faulty steering assembly.

For now, Renault is contacting owners of the affected cars and urging them to take the hatchback to their nearest service centre for inspection. At the moment, it is unclear if the 1.0-litre variant of the hatchback is also affected by the issue.

The 0.8-litre version of the Renault Kwid is powered by a 799cc, 3-cylinder engine which produces a max power of 54PS at 5678pm and a peak torque of 72Nm at 4386rpm. Mated to this engine is a 5-speed manual transmission. But if you are looking for something more powerful and effortless to drive in the city, the Kwid also comes with a 1.0-litre engine option. This 3-cylinder motor and produces 68PS of max power at 5500rpm and 91Nm of peak torque at 4250rpm. Apart from the 5-speed manual transmission, you can even get it with an AMT (automated manual transmission).

The Kwid continues to be the only car in its segment to feature a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This unit is paired to two speakers mounted on the dashboard. The hatchback also gets a fully-digital instrument cluster.
