Renault KWID has stormed the hatchback market in India since its launch. I bought the car in the second week of launch and quite satisfied with the performance. The entry level hatch Kwid is decent in terms of comfort and looks, as far as price point is concerned. I was very impressed with its SUVish looks and upmarket interiors with facilities of touchscreen infotainment and even airbag for driver.
Being a car enthusiast, I can pretty well state that the car is fair in terms of ride quality and handling. Right from the first test drive till today, I can say it could easily give Alto and Hyundai Eon, a run for their money. But there are some weak points. According to me, when it comes to power capability. An 800cc engine is not sufficient for four adult passenger, so a more powerful engine would be an added advantage.
Nevertheless, at a price point of Rs. 2.56 lacs, you can’t complain much. If you are a first time buyer and short on budget, Renault Kwid is the right car for you. It offers you decent specs, stylish looks and segment best interiors, and top of it, an excellent mileage of 25.17kmpl, which every petrol conscious buyer would love to go for.
