Renault KWID - The Game Changer of 2015

The pre-launch bookings for the Renault KWID has started and surprisingly the newcomer has a booking amount of just INR 5,000. Not just that, you can get a personal KWID experience through its official app available on leading app markets.

Renault KWID has been the most awaited car for the masses this year. No single reason goes against it in the society as Renault’s pricing hint has made everyone wait more and more as the day of launch is getting near. The KWID is no ordinary hatch for the city, yet it is in the category of those cars only. The newcomer defines a benchmark for the entry level hatchbacks and presents itself as a leader for sure.

The engine on the new KWID would be an all new 3-cylinder, DOHC, 799 cc motor producing 53.2 BHP @ 5678 rpm and 72 NM @ @ 4386 rpm. The values are best in-class and makes the KWID a good option if you are looking for a decent petrol car. The transmission would be a 5-speed unit with chances of AMT in the near future. A 1000 cc KWID is also expected with a bit of gap in both the launches. The KWID is coming with a class leading 25.17 kmpl of mileage.

The design of the KWID speaks clearly for itself. The car gets a SUV inspired appearance, making it more than a traditional hatchback. The ground clearance of 180 mm makes it ideal for the Indian bumpy roads, avoiding most of the obstacles on the way. Its head turning front looks are seriously unavoidable as this little car looks the most muscular from that view only. Its wheel arches matches to the current date crossovers. It gets a 300 liter boot space which makes it far ahead of others in the run.

The interior has been kept most advanced for a hatchback in the entry level segment. The KWID would offer a fully digital instrument console featuring for the first time in the segment. The same can be said for the touchscreen AVN, providing the premium feel in a relaxed budget. The KWID would be a one of its kind car in the Indian market and its success has been written even before its official launch in the country. The price tag is expected to be as low as INR 3 lakh for the base variant, making it the best machine money can buy at that price.
