Renault Kwid has crossed 1 lakh sales milestone in 14 months since launch, one of the most popular cars in India at present
The Renault Kwid has achieved 1 lakh sales milestone in India, since its launch on 24th September last year. The hatchback is presently one of the bestselling cars in the country. It has helped the French automaker to establish a strong footprint in the domestic market. Achieving the feat in just 14 months since launch, and that too despite tough competition; shows how well the car has been doing in the market.
The Kwid comes with an unconventional design language, which has played a crucial role in making it so popular. It sports a rugged and aggressive look, which was completely new to its segment; when the car was launched last year. This car looks like a blend between a hatchback and a small SUV.
With such an attractive design and impressive interior features, the small hatchback grabbed attention easily. Inside the cabin of Kwid, the unique digital instrument cluster, a touchscreen infotainment system and decent space helped it to offer the customers something different and fresh in the segment.
Initially the Kwid was launched with a 0.8-litre petrol engine, but later the automaker introduced a larger 1.0-litre engine. This new engine surely enhanced the Kwid’s appeal further. Also, Renault has recently introduced an AMT to the top-end trim RXT, which bearing a price-tag of only Rs. 4.26 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) makes this car a very much appealing one.
The Renault Kwid delivers very impressive fuel efficiency as well. The 0.8-litre Kwid returns 25.17 kmpl, while the 1.0-litre MT model delivers 23.01 kmpl. Interestingly, the 1.0-litre AMT model returns 24.04 kmpl, which is more than its MT counterpart. The hatchback is priced between Rs. 2.65 lakh and Rs. 4.26 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Now the Renault is also planning to launch different variants of the Kwid in next year.
