Renault Kwid 1.0 SCe Competition

The 1000cc Kwid will basically rival 1.0-litre models of the Alto and Eon. However, it could also leave a dent on the sales of the Datsun Redi Go and Chevy Spark.

The new 1.0 model of Kwid looks almost the same as the current 0.8-litre model. However, it does get new side decals and silver finish ORVMs. The AMT models will also get an ‘Easy-R’ badge. Indian car buyers seem to have loved the SUV-like styling of the Kwid. The macho stance, the SUV-ish design, the slight resemblance to the Duster- the Kwid has enough to stand out amongst a crowd of hatchbacks.
