Renault Kwid Exteriors

The first impression of the Renault Kwid will leave you wondering whether it is an entry level hatchback or a rugged crossover. Thanks to aggressive SUV styling, larger dimensions, and a raised stance, the Renault Kwid has brought an unconventionally handsome design to the hatchback game.

Spinny Assured Renault Kwid front

While it is a hatchback, the Renault Kwid does a really good job of appearing like a small SUV. The front end brings the muscular features of the Renault Duster to a hatchback. The large headlights and fog lamps are complemented well by the large grille. The addition of the SUV-like black cladding and faux skid plate at the bottom of the bumper further strengthens the Kwid’s SUV credentials.

Coming to the side profile the Kwid supported SUV-like bold fenders with black cladding all along the wheel arches on which the side indicators were also integrated. The rear too imbibed the same styling elements and was highlighted by large tail lamps, integrated rear spoiler and black SUV-like lower bumper trim. What really became the USP of the Kwid was its best in segment ground clearance of 180mm, a figure that is truly apt for India.

The Renault Kwid facelift in 2019 updated the engines and the styling. While it retained all the dimensions, the front end received the biggest overhaul. The new Kwid now features the split headlamp design with the headlight cluster at the bottom and the LED DRLs at the top. The rear tail lights also received the LED treatment but otherwise, the rear remains untouched.

Overall, the Kwid’s unconventional SUV stance, aggressive yet elegant styling and an overall dominant silhouette made it an instant head turner, for a budget that gave a tough competition to veterans like the Alto. Even in its pre-owned glory, the Kwid looks evergreen and stylish.

Renault Kwid Interiors 

Before heading into the Kwid’s interior, one thing that is definitely worth mentioning is the easy ingress. Thanks to the Kwid’s raised stance, one doesn’t have to crouch in to get inside. Once inside, the first thing you will notice is the fairly simple grey monotone with some elements of colour on the dashboard. The centre of the dash is dominated by a 7-inch touch infotainment system with navigation features, finished in a piano black theme for a premium look. Overall, the interiors are more on the functional side than the looks of it. Plastic quality is decent for the price when it comes to style as well as fit & finish.

Coming to seating comfort, the front seats are definitely a comfortable place to be in and provide a good support for well-built individuals as well. The steering isn’t adjustable but finds itself placed at a neutral position that suits most drivers. The rear seats are also spacious; which is surprising for a vehicle of this segment. Head, leg and even shoulder room is superb, making you feel like you’re sitting in a higher segment vehicle. The MID of the Kwid is an all-digital instrument cluster with colour backlight. In the top end variant, the MID shows information like distance to empty, real-time & average fuel efficiency, trip meter, distance travelled, average speed and fuel consumed.

Overall, the Kwid offers a superb cabin for its price that is one of the many reason why the Kwid continues to dominated the A level hatch segment, making the pre-owned Renault Kwid a perfect choice for those looking to enjoy practicality in a tight budget.

  • 7-inch touch infotainment system
  • All digital instrument cluster
  • 300 litre boot space
  • Ample Storage Spaces

Renault Kwid Engine, Performance and Safety

When it comes to entry level hatchbacks, the engines on offer are often underpowered. This isn’t the case with the Renault Kwid. Renault has equipped the Kwid with two engine options and two transmission options. The more affordable Renault Kwid variants come with the smaller 0.8-litre petrol engine and a 5-speed manual transmission. For a little more money, the Kwid comes equipped with a 1.0-litre petrol engine and the option of a 5-speed manual or AMT automatic transmission. Both engines provide more than 20 kmpl of mileage, with the smaller engine providing 23.14 kmpl and the larger engine delivering 24.04 kmpl of mileage.

A ground clearance of 180 mm and a tuned suspension provide a good ride quality on Indian roads. The electric power steering is light at low speeds and becomes heavier to match higher speed, providing very responsive steering. The combination of the engines and the ride quality provide a very capable city car that is comfortable and responsive at all speeds.

In terms of safety, not much importance is placed by Indian manufacturers, especially in the budget category since all the focus is centred on reducing the cost and pouring in features. However, Renault went ahead and offered the Kwid with a driver’s side airbag as an option. In 2018, the company equipped the Kwid with pro-sense seat belts that came with pretensioners and load limiters to enhance the safety. The rear seat belts also featured an ELR (emergency locking retractor), even though ABS was still nowhere to be found. 

Performance Key Highlights

  • Exceptional Mileage
  • Two Engine Choices
  • AMT Capabilities
  • Great Ride Quality
  • High Power to Weight Ratio
