Before going to review I want to share my experience while buying, I booked the Kwid RXT model from a dealer in Kolkata last winter and got the chance to test drive my own car this summer after almost 6 months of waiting period. This is one of the problems new customer of this car might have to face. Earlier at the time of bookings, I was in a dilemma whether to go for the Kwid or Alto 800, but made my decision just based on the great,sporty and muscular looks of the Kwid.
Now coming on to the review:
Looks: In terms of looks, the Kwid can easily oust its arch rival Alto 800 and many other cars of that segment. Drive quality or comfort I would say is pretty good compared to others of this segment and obviously at this price.
Space: Driver leg room seat width is enough for a 6 ft tall person, for rear leg room and the head room should have been a bit more, overall it's spacious.
Ground clearance and boot: One of the positive aspects of this car is the 180 mm of ground clearance which is very important for typical Indian road, another positive thing is 300 liters of boot space which till now the top of this segment,talking about other positive aspects its wide screen media navigation system I feel it's the best at this price.
Engine and ride comfort: Talking about the engine it feels comfortable and less noisy to drive normally but little noisy with AC on in the city and on an upward slope.
Mileage: As I am a daily user of the car in the busiest street of Kolkata I am getting the fuel economy of 15.5 kmpl and 15 kmpl with AC on.
Suspension and brake and other: Apart from that suspension is very good as I felt even with full 5 passengers on board but with brakes now I am getting some noise at the time applying it otherwise it's good. The car has a good strong AC.
Cons: One thing what I felt that company shouldn't have comprised with wiper it's a bit difficult to drive in the heavy rain with single wiper. Another problem as I faced is the after service, in Kolkata Renault has one workshop and that too far from main city and they are unable to take many bookings per day as it has small holding capacity. So to get a booking one have to call a week or two before.
Overall till now I have not faced many problems with the car, I will suggest people of this car, it's a very good car at this price.
