2016 Renault Kwid 1·0 RXT.jpg

Renault Kwid. 2015 to date (prod. n/a). 5-door saloon. F/F, 799, 999 cm³ (I3 DOHC). Renault attempted to take on the Maruti Suzuki Alto (2012–), with a subcompact crossover, with design cues taken from the Dacia Duster. First on the CMF-A (for A-segment) platform, and in some respects a Renault 4 for the 2010s. Very roomy, seven-inch touch-screen in the centre, digital speedometer. Reasonably good quality on the inside, with plenty of storage spaces. Refined for the segment, even if the triple proved inadequate uphill. Good handling despite the height and light steering, and good ride. Light weight (660 kg) contributed to excellent fuel efficiency; on the down side, no ABS at launch, and driver’s airbag optional on only the top model. Localization of 98 per cent led to low base price, starting at ₹3.5 lakh. One-litre model from 2016.

Manufacturing location: Oragadam, Tamil Nadu, India

Marque: Renault
