Kwid

Wrapup

 A nice looking compact car and economically priced. Looks, decent ride and the recently introduced 1.0 litre engine are its forte. The steering is a bit dicey though. It has taken the entry level segment by storm gathering significant numbers considering Renault brand and its presence in India. The smart design helps its cause.

Quick Review

  The term ‘Game Changer’ is quite apt for this newly born stylish compact entry level SUV from Renault. To surprise most, what the French did in designing and production of the Kwid, no other foreign manufacturer has achieved till yet. Expectations from the Kwid does remain quite high in delivering what the Duster did for Renault. Indian’s surely have fallen for the SUV design and this is evident in Kwid’s overall appeal as well. With such short front and rear overhangs, its a no-nonsense design which clearly indicates that this compact SUV means business on Indian roads. At such a low budget, Renault seems to have broken the shackles of monotonous design for budget compact cars and have entered a new era of modern yet unique styling with this offering. For instance, Its front, is like no other car on Indian roads, although inspired by its bigger sibling, the structured front grille with depth creases on the front bonnet makes it quite aggressive. The essence of all black skid plates and cladding used around the Kwid appears to be SUV like rather than a dull city hatch. The fog lamp cluster also fits perfectly on to the front bonnet along with a new chrome finished C-chape headlamp unit which makes it quite distinct. 

  Move onto the side and the fender cladding along with side molding ups its stance clubbed with a raised ground clearance of 180 mm. The material used on the cladding and side molding however doesn’t appear top notch but one cannot really complain in the budget segment that the car is targeting. The integrated roof rear spoiler and all black rear bumper along with swept back taillights makes for its uber appeal. Now on the downside, what really falls short is the low quality black side mirrors which does look a misfit and the clever use of turn indicator on the front fender cladding looks quite aftermarket. But passing all of that, in short, Kwid looks a stunner in a segment of its own!
