Renault Kwid is the French automaker’s fresh attempt to penetrate into the Indian car market. While the Duster has been a revealing success, nothing else has clicked even remotely close. Duster still accounts for majority of Renault’s Indian sales and the next big thing from the company will be the Kwid!
Everyone is excited about the car, which could very well be termed as the A-segment micro SUV of our world. After its official unveiling in May this year, it was communicated that its launch will be around the festive season. And here our insider sources tell us that Renault India is planning to start production of Kwid by the end of August or early September. This may mean that we can expect the Kwid to hit the market anytime in September or early October.
Bookings may also open soon and we expect a huge rush for the car which has been promised between Rs 3 to 4 Lakh price brackets. It will be powered by an all new 800cc petrol engine and will also get a bigger 1.0 liter motor sometime later. The better news is that Kwid will also come with an AMT gearbox apart from the regular manual tyranny.
