Renault Kwid is undoubtedly one of the most awaited car of 2015 and without much procrastination, the French carmaker had initiated the official bookings for its latest entry level offering on Monday across India to cash in on the buzz that the car has been creating lately. The Kwid can be booked for an amount of Rs 25,000 which is refundable in case someone cancels the booking.
Nissan and Renault have jointly designed a new CMF-A platform on which the Kwid is based. Also, this same platform will be used by Datsun for its future entry level hatch. The Kwid has a very masculine family-inspired front look and the rectangular slats in the front grille give it an SUV like character much like its elder sibling, the Renault Duster.

An all-new 799cc, 3 cylinder Petrol motor that has been designed by Renault and Nissan together will power the Kwid which generates 54 Bhp of power along with 72 Nm of Torque and will be mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. Importantly, Renault claims that the car will deliver 25.17 Kmpl which will make it our country’s most fuel efficient petrol car and will be the car’s ultimate USP in our market along with 180mm of ground clearance which will be a boon on our bumpy roads.

Kwid is expected to be priced in between Rs. 3 to 4 Lacs which certainly makes it a good value for money proposition considering the space it has on offer with its brilliant ergonomics and can be considered as a better buy over its competitors like the Maruti Alto 800 and the Hyundai Eon.
