Renault India today announced that they will offer their Kwid with best in class 4 years / 1 lakh kms (whichever is earlier) warranty. Earlier, the car came with a warranty of 2 years / 50,000 kms, which was the standard warranty issued by the company for all their cars since 2015. Before that, all Renault cars came with a warranty of 4 years / 80,000 kms.
With more than 2.2 lakh Kwid plying on Indian roads, the small car from Renault has managed to successfully place itself in the highly competitive segment of the Indian auto industry. This has been made possible due to aggressive pricing, best in class space and features, and now – warranty.
Sporting well designed and rugged Sports Utility Vehicle inspired exteriors, ground clearance is at a premium in the Renault Kwid standing at 180mm as against 160mm seen on the Alto and 170mm on the Eon. Scoring also on overall length, the Kwid measures 3,680mm offering increased cabin and boot space.
Renault Kwid also sports a segment first MediaNav system with 7” touchscreen. It also offers Bluetooth connectivity for smartphone, media playback from radio, CD and USB besides including GPS navigation with voice commands.
Offered in a choice of 800 cc and 1 liter petrol engines, Kwid is also offered with AMT option. This has made the car a favourite among entry level car buers in the country. Renault India has seen outstanding demand for the Kwid in India. Sales of Kwid in India average over 6,000 units every month. Even then, there is a waiting period. Production has been increased to meet this demand and bring down waiting period.
Made in Chennai at the Renault-Nissan plant, the car is also exported to countries abroad from here. Having met with overwhelming response in the country, Renault Kwid production was stepped up to 10,000 units to meet export demand. The Kwid hatchback is exported in SKD format (Semi Knocked down Units) as well as CBU.
