New Kwid 1.0 has decals, sporty looks along with dual colour mirrors. So it's for sure a head turner. And its offering all the top end accessories as well with its top end model RXT and RXT(O).

With 1000 CC engine it surely has revved up its engine capacity in terms of speed and more power.

Numbers:-

999CC engine with 67bhp and 91Nm  that's 14bhp and 19Nm more than the 800cc unit makes currently. 

How it fares on this new engine?

To be frank there is not much of difference in respect to the city travels. But yes you will have a stress-free, comfortable run on the highways with its 999 CC engine for sure which was missing in its 800 CC version. When the old engine had jerkiness at the lower speed and you might find relieved with the 999CC engine for same. Manoeuvrability is easier with this car for sure in Indian cities traffic especially for me in Bengaluru traffic.

Storage Space/ Boot Space

Being a smaller car doesn't mean it has cut corners. It offers a boot space of 300 litre which is enough considering its size.

Comfortableness:-

It has comfy seats with 5 people seating comfortably cruising on a highway with filled luggage. You won't fee any discomfort even at 100 Kmph. Its interiors are also comfortable for seating. You get fabric upholstery and rear & back head rests for comfortable travel. And a note the interiors are dual tone which gives a good overall look to the car.

Specs(Top):

Engine - 999CC

Max Power - 67 bhp @ 5500 RPM

Max Torque - 91 Nm @ 4250 RPM

Manual

Front Wheel Drive

A/C - Manual

Airbags - Driver Side Only

Fuel - 23.1 kmpl (ARAI)

Entertainment - Integrated Music System with Touch Screen (7 inches)

GPS -Yes

FM -Yes

MP3 Compatibility - Yes

Pricing:-

Since the KWID1.0 is available in the top end version below is the pricing (Ex-Showroom , Bengaluru)

RXT - 4 Lakhs

RXT(O) - 4.13 Lakhs

Considering the features and benefits its a bargain.

Cons:

It does miss out on some of the safety norms like ABS, Dual Air Bags and some extra features. Also, you get all this only in the top end version of the KWID.

Suggestion/Tip:-

To be frank its a buy for me. At this price point, you are getting a bargain with good features which will be missing in others. Though there are some missing components which could have been added to top end like adjustable ORVM's Dual airbags with a bit of more pricing which anyone would have loved to pay. But as said it's a go decision to buy it.

Also, I want to give a small note that Renault KWID AMT is out now for the top end RXT(O). It will be pricier but cheaper than other AMT's out there with awesome features(almost same features).

So go for it if it's your first car or even you want it just for the sake of it as it's right in your budget with many finances available.

Drive safe, be Happy
