Well, the Renault Kwid Convertible speculative rendering is exactly what it is. It’s merely a rendering and the French car maker NEVER discussed the possibility of such a derivative. We decided to venture out with our imagination inspired from the two concepts which Renault showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo – Kwid RaceR and Kwid ClimbeR.
Considering the Kwid’s 0-star rating in the Global crash tests, removing the roof which is a vital structural member doesn’t seem like a good idea safety-wise. However, it has to be said that the car indeed looks interesting without its roof.
With large dual-tone alloy wheels and black leather upholstery inside, the imaginary Renault Kwid Convertible does look market ready. It could become the most affordable convertible in the world if at all Renault decides to get experimental with its low-cost hatchback. It could even work as a brand shaper for the hatchback.
A convertible Kwid can be your regular commuter over weekdays and a fun little recreational vehicle during the weekends. Isn’t that the marketing pitch of almost all the OEMs nowadays!
The regular Renault Kwid is powered by a 0.8-litre three-cylinder petrol engine which is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission to dish out a modest 54 PS and 72 Nm of torque. A more powerful 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine is due for launch in the coming months. The new engine will introduce an optional Easy-R AMT (Automated Manual Transmission).
How do like the topless Renault Kwid. Would you consider buying one if at all Renault comes up with such a proposition? Do share your thoughts in the comments section below.
