           Expert Review Renault-Kwid

Despite the good sales,there is no place for complacency as the company has kept the momentum by launching different variants of this 5-door hatchback. A few months ago there is the launch of 1.0-liter variant happened and now company has driven in automated manual transmission model of this small city runabout.

The highlight of this new variant is of course its clutch-less operation. As expected, there is no clutch pedal to start with and the river has been replaced by an empty space which is complemented with the cup holder. Instead what you get rotary knob on the lower end of the dash which comes in 3 driving modes - Drive, Neutral, and Reverse.

           Expert Review Renault Kwid

Well how it translates into real world performance? Well! For starters the KwidAMT is effortless to drive and although there is some typical hesitation is present, it doesn’t intrude with driving performance and comfort. No creep function means you need not to hold on to the brakes while idling which is not a bad thing in the city however would have preferred in the hilly areas. Part throttle responses are short and Kwid effortlessly but around in town without breaking any sweat. Even on the highway, there is no problem as long as you do not demand some urgent overtaking manoeuvres. Single ECU system works in an effortless manner and we must say that Renault has done stellar job reinventing the automatic transmission mechanisms. Overall, Renault AMT is one of the smoothest automatic transmissions we have driven in a long time.

Design, Style and Interiors

Exterior and interior continues to remain same which is a good thing as both of these components are strengths of the car. On the outside, the car looks almost similar to the standard model except the easy-R badge. There is no change in the profile as well as on rear of the car.

        Renault Kwid Ergo Smart Cabin

Inside the cabin too, Renault continues to be feature touch screen infotainment system and digital speedometer. There is ample amount of space by the small card standard and boot space also features vast expanse to take in sufficient amount of luggage. Renault has upped the ante with Kwid AMT as it wants to keep up the momentum that has been generated by with its launch in the market a year ago.

Overall Verdict

Available in only top-of-the-line RXT variant, Kwid AMT is priced at Rs 4.25 lakh (ex-showroom,Delhi). This automatic quit has really surprised us with its ability to adapt itself in the normal City driving condition. Undoubtedly there is some hesitation on the lower speed but as you get moving, the driving become more effortless and smooth. Renault has taken this big Leap Forward and it is sure to attract more customers to its Kitty. Overall experience of driving Kwid AMT is very positive and we definitely recommend this car for the person who is looking for a comfortable City driving machine at an affordable price.
