The new small car, Kwid, from the house of Renault was spotted for the first time since its global unveiling in May undergoing testing with no camouflage in Krishnagiri, near Bangalore.
Renault Kwid, a small car with SUV-like profile is scheduled to make its India debut during the festive season of this year. The latest spy shots of Kwid, taken by MotorBeam reader Ram Gokul, show a couple of prototypes of Kwid donned in red and white body paints. The images here give a fairly good idea of the road presence of Kwid. It further reveals that at the back, the small car really looks like an SUV or crossover.
Unveiled on 20 May in Chennai, India, Renault Kwid will get a price tag between ₹3 lakh and ₹4 lakh. We also hear that Renault will kickstart the pre-launch activities for Kwid in India soon and has roped in Ranbir Kapoor as the brand ambassador.
Under the hood, Renault Kwid will pack 800cc engine that would generate a power of 57bhp with 5-speed manual and automated manual transmission (AMT). Based on the all-new platform CMF-A, the model will rival Maruti Alto and Hyundai Eon in the Indian market. The car is expected to get features like optional air bags, Media Nav multimedia and navigation system with Bluetooth connectivity.
