It commands a premium of Rs 25,000 over the base trim for a few more basic features

The second trim in the Renault Kwid’s updated lineup is the new RXL (O). It is available with both 0.8-litre and 1-litre engine options while commanding a premium of Rs 25,000 over the new base-spec RXL. Let’s find out if it offers enough value over the base trim:


0.8-litre MT

1-litre MT

1-litre AMT


Rs 4.74 lakh

Rs 4.84 lakh


Rs 5.19 lakh

Rs 5.61 lakh


Rs 35,000

Why consider the Kwid RXL (O) 0.8-litre/1-litre variants?

For its premium over the base-spec RXL, this trim gets a more appealing design with its taillight LED light guides and full wheel covers. The 1-litre variants also get body decals. You also get some functional features including front power windows, intermittent and auto function for the front wipers, manual AC, and a 2-speaker music system. If you’re on a strict budget to get the Kwid, we’d recommend you skip the RXL for the RXL(O). While its cabin doesn’t get any major upgrades, the 1-litre variant gets a two-tone fabric upholstery with white stitching. 

Here’s a look at its features:

Why skip the Kwid RXL (O) 0.8-litre/1-litre variants?

While the RXL (O) is our recommended trim for those on a strict budget, it still lacks enough features that would make the car easy to live with. We suggest you consider the one-above RXT as the most value-for-money variant which is only offered with the 1-litre engine and also introduces the choice of an AMT. It commands a justifiable premium for a bunch of cosmetic and functional upgrades including rear power windows and a touchscreen system.




Better to skip this trim and stretch to the RXL (O) variant for better basic features.


Recommended only for those on a strict budget.


Being the most value-for-money trim, this is our recommended variant.


We suggest you consider this variant only if you want the baby-SUV look with an acceptable premium for better looks.
