Looking for a new set of wheels? Confused between a bike and a small car? Read on... 

If you in the market for a new set of wheels with a tight budget, the Renault Kwid, launched in 2015, is a better alternative to a bike. Here’s why? Not only does the Kwid look stylish and butch, it also comes at an attractive price tag of Rs 2.67 lakh and is easy on the pocket when it comes to maintenance. But the best part, undoubtedly, is the ability to travel in all kinds of weather. So, let’s take a closer look at the hatchback, shall we?

 Practicality: All-weather Motoring Vs Waiting For A Sunny Day

There’s no denying that a motorcycle gives you a sense of freedom like nothing else on wheels while cruising down the wide open road. But then again, how many perfectly sunny days do we have in a year to enjoy riding? In a country as vast and varied as ours, pesky weather conditions are the norm and could play spoilsport to your plans. This is where a car equipped with an air conditioner comes into play. Not only does it keep you cool, it also keeps you away from all the dust and pollution on our roads.

Additionally, if you own a bike, you must already know that there’s hardly any scope for carrying your luggage. The Renault Kwid comes to your rescue yet again with a large 300-litre boot that’s good enough for carrying your shopping bags and your luggage for the odd weekend getaway.

The Renault hatchback also offers a bang for your buck with the number of class-leading features it packs. The Kwid’s best-in-segment interior space lets four passengers travel in comfort. To add more convenience, the hatchback packs a large 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation that ensures that you don’t drain your smartphone’s battery while navigating through uncharted territory. There’s even a 12V power outlet to juice up your phone if and when it runs out charge.

With the Kwid, you even get the option of choosing an automatic gearbox that helps driving through our traffic-choked cities a breeze. The Renault Kwid RXL AMT, which has a starting price of Rs 3.84 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), takes things up a notch with its user-friendly automated manual transmission called Easy-R. This AMT unit consists of a rotary dial instead of a conventional gear lever to change the drive modes. Simply twist the knob to select between neutral, drive and reverse and you are good to go! Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? You can read more about it here.

Price: Easy Finance Options

Besides being practical, the Renault Kwid is also lighter on your wallet with low EMIs and downpayment similar to bikes priced around Rs one lakh. The Kwid can be financed for up to seven years helping bring your monthly EMIs to about Rs 5,000. Hence, for the same EMI as a motorcycle, you get a car that packs a fuel-efficient engine, a spacious cabin, a large boot and all-weather capability! Could one ask for more? We don’t think so!

Ownership Experience And Resale Value

Everyone wishes for peace of mind when it comes to ownership experience of a vehicle. And that’s exactly what you get with the Renault Kwid. In fact, the Kwid’s maintenance costs are not only lower than other cars in its segment, it is also backed by unique measures like Renault’s Workshop on Wheels (WoW). Programmes such as these help keep your Kwid in the best shape even in the remotest parts of our country. Apart from Renault’s vast service network that comprises of 270 workshops, the carmaker has over 50 mobile service stations that are capable of performing almost all the service operations that are required to keep your car running in perfect condition. Further, when its time to sell your car, the Kwid’s high resale value will ensure that you get maximum returns which can then be used to buy another Renault!

When it comes to decisions like these, it is always a matter of choosing between what your head wants and the heart desires. In this case, however, doesn’t the Kwid make for a better all-rounder when compared to bikes? We certainly think so.
