I own an maruthi alto 800 since January 2014. Recently, we had purchased a Renault Kwid for my father in law. This purchase was done after doing much comparisons and reviews especially from Cardekho and my experience with alto 800. I have driven Kwid 2000 KM plus.

Here i would like to present a comparison study with Kwid & alto 800. i hope that would be helpful for buyers to choose their first car.

Exteriors :There is no doubt about that Kwid has got an excellent looks from exterior. Really, i fell in love with this car mainly because of appearance that gives you confidence & pride and you never have to feel inferior you with an entry level car.. Even when i park this car among premium hatch backs, this car still looks stunning & elegant. It is much bigger than Alto, not look small when to park in a row with other hatch backs. Kwid's paint qualtiy is very good and gives a shining look.

Alto 800 doesn't reach anywhere in this comparison, Maruti has to start thinking about new exterior designing. Still more people buying alto because of its brand value only. Once, kwid proves itself in long term reviews, then Alto 800's thrown as segment leader will be doubtful.

Interiors: More spacious, comfortable seating, more bottle holders and glove boxes, digital speedometer are plus points than alto. plastic quality is same as that of alto. Designing of front wind shield glass doesn't allow you to expose to more sunlight. In alto, you get direct sunlight in face and front row.

Alto 800 has got a better A/C and faster cooling , but kwid don't have that much "gear like" effect of A/C in acceleration.

Space : better seatings , and comfortable. Ample space for boot space to accommodate enough baggages for airport trips.

Drive quality : Light weight stearing, easy to handle. More stability in high speeds. Driving in 40 - 70 km is very comfortable. Overtaking in lesser speed or higher speed is a strenuous task especially in highways. i still like Alto 800 for its response to acceleration and power. Alto is a better performer in hill climbing, but kwid gives you less tiredness and more comfort especially in long travel. You can ride through small pathholes and bumps thanks to its SUV like design, ground clearance and better shock proof to cabins.

After sale service : First service was carried out at dealer service center, it was satisfactory. expecting its parts to easily available in market in future, the area where maruti beats its rivals.

Pricing : Slightly higher than alto 800. About 25,000 rps difference for same features segment.

Final Verdict : Renault Kwid is value for money choice and best car in this segment.
