Renault Kwid RXT Features & Specifications, ARAI Mileage and Price

Renault has though of an out of the box with the Renault Kwid RXThatchback model to take on the Maruti swift and the Hyundai Eonand let’s tell you right here, that you should read this review before you go for its established rivals. It’s a hard task to succeed in the entry level Hatchback segment. There is absolutely no guarantee to make it big even if you have a better car in all ways possible than a Maruti Suzuki because this segment works on network, service and cheap maintenance. The car is light, efficient and easy to drive for the first time car buyer too and Maruti has so far done a damn good job at it with the Swift and Alto. So the Renault Kwid has to deliver on other fronts, and will have to makes its own niche to stay clear of the Alto buyer but take on Hyundai’s Eon. It has to have enough power and more over its well established rivals to be taken seriously in this cut throat entry level hatchback segment. 
 
Specifications
 
The Kwid comes with front power windows, central locking and air conditioning. In addition, the top end Kwid gets the Touchscreen system that is offered in the Duster and Lodgy. It is a big feature for a car of this class and moderate price and the few buyers who want to splurge a bit for their budget Hatchback, will love this Touchscreen system alot. It comes with Bluetooth telephonic voice over and navigation in addition to the usual radio, and USB connectivity. To keep entry level prices down, the base variant is basic while the RXE variant that sits above the base version gets the music system as an optional feature. What we don’t like is that the Kwid comes with an single airbag that is also on the options list, even on the top end variant. All new 3 cylinder 799cc motor, the cylinder block was chosen to be made of aluminium, like most small lightweight engines are. Things like the intake manifold and oil pan are made of durable high grade plastic and the crankshaft is made that of steel. This 3-pot mill develops 54PS of power at a fairly decent 5,678rpm and max torque is rated at 72Nm at 4,386rpm. Since the car weighs just 660kg, it gets an impressive power to weight ratio of 85PS per tonne. The Kwid uses MacPherson struts up front and twist beam suspension at the rear and the setup is tuned to perfection for our roads
 
Exteriors And Interiors
 
A lesson Renault has learnt with the Duster is that a rugged high ground clearance car will find its takers here and with the Kwid, the carmaker delivers just that. Riding high at 180mm, the Kwid has the highest ground clearance in its class. And considering it’s a short wheelbase, this will be more than enough to go over just about every large speed breaker the country has in store for it. The high ground clearance also gives excellent visibility out of the driver’s seat making it a very easy car to drive around town. What impressed us right away is the ride quality of this tiny Hatchback. 
 
Safety
 
The safety features offer seatbelts for everyone. But, what lags in the car is that single air bag. Something is with every other variant.
