Renault Kwid AMT Rivals

The Kwid AMT is a potent rival to the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 AMT. The 1.0 L variants will rival

Renault Kwid AMT Dimensions

Renault Kwid AMT Dimensions in mm
Renault Kwid AMT Length 3679 mm
Renault Kwid AMT Width 1579 mm
Renault Kwid AMT Height 1478 mm

As expected, the Kwid AMT shares everything apart from its transmission with the current Kwid 1.0. Hence, it remains similar even in dimensions.

Design

Exterior: The Kwid AMT shares all of its body panels with the current Kwid. This means that it continues to benefit from SUV-like beefy looks and a high ground clearance of 180 mm. Compared to the usual crop of budget-end hatchbacks, the Kwid looks decidedly more interesting and more eye-catching. Our favourite bit is the front-end design, which lends a mini-Duster look to the Kwid.

Interior: On the inside too the Kwid AMT 1000cc variant looks much like the standard Kwid. This means that it gets a spacious cabin that can easily accommodate 5 passengers. It also has a boot capacity of 300-litres, which is again best-in-class. The only change in the interior is the advent of the AMT instead of the manual transmission. The AMT variants get a rotary gear selector. And in place of the manual gear stick you will find a usable cubby hole.

Renault Kwid SCe & Easy-R

The Kwid has been successful in garnering a great response from the India car buying lot more than a hundred thousand bookings registered till date. Now, however, Renault has decided to make this entry-level hatchback even more attractive by releasing an AMT equipped version of the Kwid.  Christened as the Easy-R, the AMT ‘box on the new Kwid comes mated to a 1-litre motor that is more powerful and yet, should be almost as efficient as the current 799cc mill. Use of clever technology means the Kwid 1.0 litre delivers usable power even at the lower end.

Renault has revealed the new 1.0 Litre engine (1000cc) models of the Kwid with better performance. It uses advanced 4-valve per cylinder technology coupled with DOHC layout for superior low-end performance and better fuel economy at the same time.

The Easy-R variant is the automated gear shift variant (AMT) with a 5-speed gearbox. It provides for a combination of stress-free driving experience and high fuel economy at the same time. There is also crawl function to move forward or backward slowly even without pressing the accelerator pedal.

  1. This Easy R AMT variant of Kwid looks just amazing. Will be great value car if they keep a competitive price for it.

  2. […] Renault launched its Maruti Alto 800 rival last year and took the entry-level car market by storm! At the Auto Expo, the French car maker showcased new variants of the Kwid equipped with a 1.0 L engine and 5-speed Easy-R AMT. Renault is expected to launch these variants in India this year. (Read More. . . ) […]

  3. Ps. let me know if 1.0 liter engine is a 04 cylinder unit instead of a 03 cylinder which powers the 800cc cars. The biggest negative point in a 03 cylinder power plant is the vibration at low revs & I hope 04 cylinder will eradicate that negative issue. I’m really interested in the Climber version, Price is immaterial for me. Ps. let me know the release date of that model too if possible. Thks a lot.

  8. Just spoke to Renault customer care. They are reeling under pressure of Kwid 800cc orders and have postponed launch of AMT 1000 CC / 1 L model to Oct 2017. Very bad. I thought they will launch by september but they delayed by a year…now have to look for alternatives.
