The Renault Kwid is a direct salvo at the ultra successful Maruti Suzuki Alto and the popular Hyundai Eon. Although many have tried to break into this market, the Kwid for one may prove to be more than popular with Indian audiences. With the 2018 update the Kwid is now slightly better looking, gets more convenience feature and, most importantly, gets new safety-enhancing features for rear passengers

Renault KWID Highlights
Renault launched Kwid hatchback in India in 2015 and it proved a runaway success. Kwid’s SUV-like design, broad shoulders and beefed arches makes it look anything but a budget hatch. The Renault Kwid’s interiors are equally impressive and we really like the way the chrome outlines the centre console. The practicality of the cabin is aided by cup holders, cubbyholes, two large size glove boxes with a recess in between them, 12V power socket for the rear passengers and rear centre armrest. Further, Kwid's class-leading 2422 mm wheelbase makes it the most spacious car in the category. The Kwid car can be had with two engine options - 0.8-liter and 1.0-liter petrol engine putting out 54PS/72Nm and 68PS/91Nm respectively, mated to 5-speed manual transmission with AMT option available on 1.0-liter. Available in eight trim levels and retails in the range of Rs. 2.67 to 4.60 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the Kwid has got Maruti Alto, Hyundai Eon, Tata Nano, and Datsun redi-GO in the crosshairs.
Exterior and Interior
The Renault’s Kwid looks like nothing else in its segment. And that is a major draw for the small car. The SUV-inspired styling paired with the high ground clearance is a recipe that hits home. The large front grille, which with the 2018 update gets chrome inserts, and side plastic cladding give the hatch a dash of ruggedness. While the car looks butch from the front and side, the rear styling is more in sync with a hatchback than an SUV. Build quality, though, is expectedly not great. There are obvious signs of cost-cutting too, including bits such as a single wiper and three lug nuts instead of four.
What’s properly surprising, is the amount of space Renault has managed to carve out on the inside of the Kwid. It’s a proper four-seater, and save for the lack of cabin width, we doubt you’d complain about much. Not just that, the boot space too is a massive 300 litres that’s happy to swallow a family’s luggage for the weekend trip. There aren’t too many “features” to speak of, but the Kwid does feature a touchscreen infotainment system with integrated reverse camera display and navigation, which is unheard of in this class or the class above it. Other goodies include front power windows, a digital speedometer, manual air-conditioning and even a centre armrest for the rear seat.
Renault Kwid is available in 8 petrol variants and claiming the mileage of 25.17 kmpl. In technical specification, Renault Kwid Stanadard (Base Petrol) is powered by 800 cc engine delivering 53.3 PS power and 72 Nm torque. Dimensionally, Kwid stacks under 3.6 metre of length and features 300-liter of boot space. It also comes with 6 manual and 2 automatic transmission variants at a staring price of Rs. 2.67 lakh and Rs. 4.35 lakh respectively.
You’re spoilt for choice if you’re buying the Kwid. There are a total of 8 variants to choose from. If budget isn’t a constraint, we’d recommend going straight for the top-spec RXT-O variant. We wouldn’t recommend any variant that doesn’t have an airbag. There’s also the snazzy looking Climber variant, should you want to stand out - it is also the only variant to get the rear centre armrest. The 1.0 manual is our pick out of the engine-gearbox combos on offer.
Maruti Suzuki Alto: This hatchback from Maruti Suzuki comes with similar engine options as the Renault Kwid. On the design front, the Alto feels dated but then it has its strong points as well. It offers bulletproof reliability, wide dealer network and affordable running costs.
Hyundai Eon: A stylish hatch, the Eon comes with Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design theme. Being a Hyundai, it offers solid reliability and lower cost of ownership. The two engines on offer are of similar specifications as the competition. But unlike the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and the Renault Kwid 1.0L, the Eon 1.0L Kappa does not come with AMT as an option.
Datsun Redi-GO: The Redi-GO shares its engines with the Renault Kwid minus the AMT option. The Redi-GO’s one-box design looks modern and the DRLs (daytime running lights) give the hatch a premium look. Another noteworthy feature here is the keyless entry for the top variant.
The Kwid has made budget hatchbacks cool, but not at the expense of practicality. It is surprisingly spacious, very well equipped (especially with the new 2018 update) and handles bad roads well too. Only serious miss is the lack of ABS. Still, gotta love it.
