|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.
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.
Renault Kwid Climber & Racer Concepts

Dubbed as the Kwid Racer and Climber, both these models are a showcase of the possibilities of styling modifications on the already stylish Kwid. While the Kwid Climber boasts of higher ground clearance, wider tires, and short overhangs, the Kwid racer is low-slung, gets low profile tires, a roll cage and several premium styling bits such as LED headlamps.
