2018 RENAULT KWID | INDIA LAUNCHPosted On: August 1, 2018 By : AutoLife Team
Renault India has launched the updated 2018 Kwid in India. The Renault Kwid is the benchmark when it comes to the entry level hatchback which features crossover like design. The new Kwid gets even more features as compared to the one available currently and more importantly also gets a few updates that make it safer. A few new features include a rear view camera, an updated front grille and a fold down hand rest for the rear seats, all of which are first in class features.
The biggest distinction on the 2018 Renault Kwid exterior of the SUV-inspired design is the new razor edge chrome grille, 7-inch touchscreen Media Nav system, digital instrument cluster, one-touch lane-change indicator, and speed-dependent volume control.
The 2018 Renault Kwid has not been updated mechanically and comes with only two engine options. The standard car gets an 800 cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine that makes 53 bhp and 72 Nm of torque. There is also a more powerful 1-litre engine on offer that makes 67 bhp of peak power and 91 Nm of peak torque. The new 2018 Renault Kwid will also be offered with a manual gearbox, which will be available on both the 800 cc and 1-litre engines. There will also be an AMT gearbox that Renault calls ‘Easy-R’, which will be available exclusively on the 1-litre option.
