At an event in Delhi Renault has launched the new game changer in the segment – the most awaited Kwid! Along with the rest of the car, its prices, starting at Rs 2.56 Lakhs are nothing short of a shock to anyone and everyone who was contemplating buying one.
Renault has introduced an all-new 799cc triple cylinder petrol engine for Kwid which produces 54 PS of maximum power and 72 Nm of peak torque. At 660 kgs, it is substantially lighter than Alto and Nano and this lends it a power to weight ratio of 85 PS/ton. A fuel efficiency rating of 25.17 kmpl gives it the coveted title of India’s most fuel efficient petrol car.
Renault has promised 19 percent lesser maintenance costs than Alto.
Kwid Prices & Variants
Renault is offering the Kwid in 4 variants plus 2 option packs which takes the total tally to 6 trims. Here are the respective prices.
- Kwid STD: Rs 2,56,968

Simply put you just can not get so much of a car at so less. This may just be a big…very big threat to the Eon and Maruti should also see a significant impact on its Altos at least in the urban areas.
Kwid is being made available in five color options

- Moonlight Silver
