Renault Kwid to be launched on September 24

Renault Kwid launch

Renault India is banking on the Kwid to revive sales.

The eagerly awaited Renault Kwid budget small car is scheduled to be launched tomorrow. With an SUV-like styling, the most affordable Renault is all set to wage a war against the Maruti Alto and Hyundai Eon.

The big small car is spacious, has a refreshing design approach while retaining the quintessential A-segment traits such as a light kerb weight (around 660 kg) and small 800 cc three-cylinder petrol engine which returns an ARAI certified fuel economy of 25.17 kmpl. At 54 PS and 72 Nm of torque, the motor is at par with the segment standards. A 5-speed manual transmission drives the front wheels.

The Kwid is the first product to be based on the Alliance’s CMF-A modular low-cost platform which was primarily engineered in India. The local development, combined with a heavy localization of 98% would enable Renault to arrive at a competitive pricing. Unveiling the car earlier this year in Chennai, Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CEO Carlos Ghosn assured that the car will be priced between INR 3-4 lakhs (ex-showroom).
