Renault Kwid 1000cc Rivals
The Kwid 1000cc and AMT variants will rival 1000cc versions of the Alto and Eon among others.
Renault Kwid 1000cc Exterior Design
Visually, the 1000cc Kwid is nearly identical to the current variants of the small hatchback. The only additions to the exteriors include side decals and silver finish ORVMs. The automatic or AMT variants will get ‘Easy-R’ badging as well. The SUV-inspired exteriors of the Kwid seem to have struck all the right chords with Indian buyers. Bits like muscular wheel arches, flat bonnet and body cladding help give the Kwid certain crossover-like traits, which the Indian public is currently so crazy about.
Renault Kwid 1000cc Interior Design
The interiors of the Kwid do not see any major changes. The 1000cc variants get the same neatly laid out dashboard with a centrally mounted touchscreen AVN. Automatic variants of the 1000cc Kwid will feature a rotary gear selector knob that will slot in below the aircon controls. The Renault Kwid boasts a spacious cabin with comfortable seating for 4-5 passengers. Its 300-litre boot space is not just the best in its class, but can easily put cars belonging to higher segments to shame.
