Renault Kwid gets seven new colour options with distinctive body graphics; available in 800 cc, 1.0L MT and 1.0L AMT variants
Renault Kwid has made the French brand what it is today in the domestic market. Finding a sweet spot in the affordable first-time buyers’ space since its launch, the Kwid has been one of the few new products to have achieved applaud-able sales numbers in recent numbers whilst being a non-Maruti-Suzuki offering.
The success of the Kwid hatchback cannot be undermined as Renault’s market share in India and its growth as a brand majorly dependent on the back of its auspicious sales. It must be admitted that Renault has done a good job in leveraging the popularity of the Kwid and subsequent introduction of new variants broadened the scale of offering.

Renault launched a slightly bigger 1.0-litre engine onto the Kwid, an AMT transmission and an all-new Climber variant with sporty visual additions. In order to have the global CMF-A platform based model fresh and appealing and to counterbalance the rivalry from the myriad of Maruti Suzuki small cars in the budget segment, Renault has now revealed seven different body graphics to the lineup.
As part of the ‘Live For More’ collection, the names of each colour schemes are nothing but a little exaggerating. Nonetheless they bode well for the SUV-esque body-styled Kwid just by looking at them in pictures. Sports, Race, Rally Cross, Chase, Ziipp, Turbo and Classic are the names Renault Chose to go with. The new colour options would not come with any new feature additions and the equipment list remains similar.
