As we said, the Kwid has attracted the attention of many entry-level car buyers in India. With the launch of the Renault Kwid Automatic model, the manufacturer is expected to successfully attract entry-level car buyers looking for a slightly premium experience. These are the same buyers who are currently putting their money on the Alto K10 AMT and the Hyundai Eon 1.0-litre model. The Kwid’s Automatic Gear Shift (AMT) technology has been christened as Easy-R. This transmission comes mated to a 1-litre engine that is more powerful than the 799cc version. The Kwid AMT’s 1.0-litre engine boasts a DOHC head with 4-valve per cylinder technology for a strong low-end performance and high fuel mileage.
