Affordable Price Tag
One of the major highlights of Renault Kwid is its affordable price tag. The 800cc variant Renault Kwid price starts at Rs.2.56 lacs (Ex-Showroom) only. Also to be noted is that the Renault Kwid 1.0L variant is included in the list of one of the most affordable automatic cars in India. This is where; the Renault Kwid offers a tough competition to Maruti Alto 800, when you compare what you pay and what you get. Even the base variant of Renault Kwid is not a bad deal.
Infotainment System with Navigation
The Renault Kwid features the best in-class, even the first in-class touch-screen infotainment system, which isn’t found in any other hatchback in the segment. The infotainment system not only shines on the feature list, but it also adds premiumness and a modern look on the interiors. It can be easily synced with your smartphone to play your favorite audio tracks. Not only this, but it comes with in-built navigation system. A superb feature in this segment!
Highest claimed ARAI fuel efficiency
The small and easy to maintain 799cc petrol engine on the Renault Kwid isn’t fuel thirsty. Renault officially claims the highest ARAI rated fuel efficiency of 25.17kmpl, which is best in the segment, at least on papers. The Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 claims 24.7kmpl, while the not so popular Tata Nano claims 23.6kmpl fuel efficiency. With its amazing fuel efficiency claims, the Renault Kwid is undoubtedly one of the best and cheapest cars for low running costs and maintenance.
Impressive Exterior Design
Don’t be surprised if the Renault Kwid looks like a mini-SUV or an entry level compact SUV. Renault has ensured that the exteriors of the Kwid are bold enough to draw your attention towards itself. It won’t be wrong to say that the Renault Kwid looks like a minimized variant of the Renault Duster. A high ground clearance, stylish chrome grille, bold looks, sporty design and a high-seating position makes the Renault Kwid the best-looking car in the segment.
300 litres of boot space! Yes, we are not joking. The Renault Kwid has the biggest boot in the segment. And even other hatchbacks at sub-10 lacs segment don’t offer this boot capacity. And when it comes to comfort in the passenger row, the Kwid outrageously wins over the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800. It has enough of headroom, legroom and knee room, which would easily accommodate three passengers of average body type at the back. Even the space for the passenger on the front is good.
