2018 Renault Kwid Old vs New: Major Differences
What all has changed in the 2018 Renault Kwid? Find out
Renault has launched the 2018 Kwid with some updates in India. The prices of each variant of the 2018 Renault Kwid remains exactly the same as before (Rs 2.72 lakh – 4.69 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi). But the carmaker has added some new features to make the hatchback more value for money than before. Let’s see what all has changed (and what has not) in the updated Kwid.
The Kwid now gets a standard emergency locking retractor (ELR) for the rear seatbelts. It prevents passengers from lunging forward in case of sudden braking
The Kwid's RXL variant now gets front power windows, remote central locking, fog lamps and full wheel covers
The Kwid's mid RXT (O) variant gets chrome on the front grille and the gear knob. There's also a 12V socket for the rear passengers and a rear parking camera
The Kwid Climber now gets a rear armrest
The Kwid's AMT transmission has been given an update and it now gets creep feature (which Renault calls Traffic Assist). This means you do not need to feather the accelerator to get the car going from standstill, an extremely useful feature in bumper-to-bumper traffic. Its rivals, the Datsun redi-GO, Maruti Alto K10 and the Tata Tiago, already have this feature incorporated in their AMTs.
The 2018 Renault Kwid does not feature any cosmetic changes apart from the chrome ornament for the front grille in the RXT(O) variant.
The interior, too, remains the same
Powering the Kwid are the same set of engines – the 0.8-litre and the 1.0-litre petrol motors - as that of its earlier version. Transmission options too remain intact – a five-speed manual transmission and an AMT.
With the prices remaining the same, the value proportion of the Renault Kwid has certainly gone up thanks to the new features that Renault has added. To know about offers on its existing and new stock, don’t forget to hit ‘View August Offers’ on this page.
