Renault Kwid AMT at the 2016 Auto Expo in February. The preview had promised two things - building on the strength and success of the Kwid and also an AMT minus the gearstick! Renault has already launched the 1.0 litre variant of the Kwid two months ago, and now has the AMT version finally ready to go - and you've probably been seeing the teasers or read our story on its imminent launch. And we have it first!
The Renault Kwid was launched last year and has been a runaway success. With styling that broke the mould in the small car space and enough space to comfortably fit five adults, the car has been popular for obvious reasons.

The Kwid was also extremely well equipped with a touch screen and navigation being offered on the top end variant. It also offered the best ride quality of any small car in the market. So it was no surprise it won the NDTV Car of the Year, CNB Viewers' Choice Car of the Year, Small Car of the Year and even the Design of the Year, at the 2016 NDTV Car and Bike Awards.

The AMT variant arrives to further enhance the Kwid's benchmark status in its segment. Renault says it has designed the system in-house, though the hardware has come from Bosch and the software to run it from FEV. But the calibration and fine-tuning have been carried out by Renault's engineers. Renault likes to brand the car Easy-R - like it did with the Duster AMT - but is happy to call it AMT anyway! The big USP on this car is that Renault has done away with the gearstick and has opted for a rotary dial instead.
