RENAULT KWID

INTRODUCTION

Renault has finally given the Kwid a mid-life facelift and now it gets more features and looks more attractive than before. The Kwid Facelift has derived some features from the Triber which is the elder sibling among the two. The front of the small-hatchback has been worked extensively so that it can resemble the SUVs. The interior has also been updated with more features and storage spaces. The new Kwid has a better ground clearance and is longer than its previous model.

 

 

EXTERIOR

EXTERIOR

Kwid facelift exterior has been updated with a new grille which is flanked by a new set of LED Daytime-Running-Lamps which also houses the turn indicators. The revised bumper places the SUV inspired headlamps and Skid plate. The headlamps are surrounded by Orange accents which really increase the sporty appeal of the hatchback. Body cladding and side decals have been running throughout the side profile. At the rear, the taillamps with LED light guides.

INTERIOR

INTERIOR

Renault Kwid interiors have been updated with a new infotainment touchscreen which comes with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The new dual-tone interior of the Kwid opens up for a more airy feel for the cabin. The occupants get an air conditioner with heater, rear armrest, power windows and 12V power socket for the front and rear. The driver gets power steering, digital instrument cluster and keyless entry. The seats, gear lever and the steering wheel has been given a stitching effect for a more upmarket feel. The AMT dial has been moved from the dashboard to the floor of the centre console.

 

 

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

Kwid specifications come with two 3-cylinder petrol engine options, namely 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre. The 0.8-litre engine produces 54PS and 72Nm of peak torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.0-litre engine produces a max power of 68PS and a max torque output of 91Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission or an AMT. Both the engines are BS6 compliant, so that the car emits less pollution.

As per ARAI, the Kwid 2019 mileage can range between 23 to 25 kmpl. However, the mileage depends on the driving habits of the driver.

 

Performance and Handling

The Renault Kwid features quite ample specifications for the city drive and will not let you down. The McPherson Strut and Twist Beam suspension on the front and rear wheels respectively form a greatly configured setting for bumpy cities and high roads. However, the car lacks grunt when you get on the highway or expressway. Also, the engine starts making noise and you will feel the annoying vibration if you force the car beyond a certain speed. Keep the speed to the optimum and the Kwid will run on butter.

BRAKING AND SAFETY

BRAKING AND SAFETY

Braking duties are handled by discs in the front and drums at the rear. Renault is offering rear parking sensors, Driver Airbag, ABS with EBD, seat belt reminders and Overspeed alert as standard. Moreover, on the upper variants, you can get a passenger airbag and reverse parking camera with guidelines to safely park.

CONCLUSION

CONCLUSION

After the facelift, the Kwid has become more attractive than before and looks like a small SUV. It is aimed towards those who are looking for a small hatchback for daily city use.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Renault Kwid

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
