Renault Kwid has a waiting period of 6 months
It looks like Renault has got another winner in their portfolio. The recently launched Kwid has got a fantastic response in our country which can mainly be attributed to its impressive price tag and bullish styling. Having been just launched, Renault is already having problems delivering the vehicle to customers. The hatch now commands a waiting period of 6 months.
The main reason for its good fortunes is its styling. Renault has done a good job on the styling front by giving it a high SUVish stance. The front end takes inspiration from the Duster, side is covered by black body cladding and the rear has a high profile and well-designed tail lamps. But the interiors are a class apart as well. It has the roomiest space in the segment and class leading boot space. The neat dashboard has a touchscreen infotainment unit, front power windows with controls placed at the centre, digital instrument display, fog lamps, central locking and remote keyless entry.
Many prospective customers are lining up to showrooms to get their hands on the vehicle and get a feel of it on the road. This has made the company give each dealership two test drive vehicles. The Kwid comes in four different variants, namely, RxT, RxT O, RxL and RxE. According to the company, the top-most variants – RxT and RxT O are gathering the most amount of interest, while the middle variant RxL has lesser amount of enquiries.
The Renault Kwid is driven by an 800cc, three-cylinder petrol engine that outputs 54 BHP of power and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Though the Kwid is not expected to do similar numbers as its main rival Alto due to Maruti’s vast dealership network, the Kwid nevertheless will give the Alto sleepless nights.
