Entry-level hatch or sub-4m seven seater- which offers better value at similar price?

Renault has had two launches in India this year, the Kwid facelift and the Triber which is an all-new model. While one is the entry-level offering from the French carmaker and the other a sub-4m MPV crossover, they do an identical displacement engine and their prices are not too far apart.

The Kwid and Triber share the same 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine but in two different states of tune with the latter having better tech. The AMT option is only available on the Kwid while it is will be offered on the Triber at a later date. Renault also offers the Kwid with a smaller 0.8-litre petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual for a more affordable option.
