    ABS also is an additional attraction

  3. ranbir kapoor is the brand ambassador? well suits him more to represent the duster and kwid than the micra, any given day. kwid is definitely going to make a difference to renault’s presence, just like duster has. i think if they launch amt with airbags and ABS and even price those models in between 4-5 lakhs, people will go crazy. the current models on offer are already highly awaited as it is. good luck kwid.

  4. Actually the effort by renault is good but they are loosing some basics like there is no Power Stearing in two variants while these are the basic need of an customer.
    if any body goes to buy the std variant he will charged 4 Lac approx and will not having power stearing and AC.
    So people again go for alto,EON or Swift ,i10 etc.

  5. Disappointed with Renault , No AC and Power Steering in Base Model. People will end up paying around 4 lakhs for getting the model with these features.
    Whats the Point , People will stick to Eon and good old Alto.

  6. pls fix dis on road price in below 5 Lakhs so dat it can compete well with alto k10 And hyundai eon
    all the best kwid


  8. Its really amazing car i.e. bigger in size, SUV looks, good ground clearance, sufficient amount of boot space, comparatively low price. I like it and I am going to buy it immediately.

  12. Kwid should be powered by at least 1000 cc powerful engine and power steering , power window and AC which are the basic needs of an indian. Price does not matter. Good luck KWID

  13. Renault kwid looks good in first look, but as many people says, in std model Renault are not providing power steering nd ac. According to me its the only weak point. Overall gd car in small budget. Renault has take a veiw on this piont…..

  14. It’s a nice car…….but you have to give the power steering and Ac in base model. …because normally people like it in base models. …….
    Happy journey kwid. ……

  15. Kwid nice car looking wise. System wise.but problem ye hai ki weight only 660 kg hai..alto , k10, eon ka weight 1200 kg ke aaspaas hai .to milage bhi doublehona chahiye. Body ka gauge.just aada kar diya hoga. Matlab safty half ho gayi…mere hisab se body gauge 30ke lagbhag hoga.system extra daal diye toh bodyka weight kam kiya.

  16. is it possible to get available Petrol+ CNG in Renault Kwid? or can v fit CNG from Out dealers?if possible let me know on 9850030031.

  17. Renault kwid ka diseal version kabtak launch hoga. & kya power starring renault kwid ke kisi model me nahi hai. Mughe purses karna hai. Reply me

  18. No A/C and power steering in base model ,OMG Renault wants to burn us in summer. Now days a car without A/C and power steering seems to be a baiil gaadi

  19. Hi Frds…I have just bought my new kwid top end model RXT white. Its feel so gud, I luv this car. Specially its SUV design is too gud, interiors are much attractive, power n performance is also up to the segment best. Appreciable thing is its look, wherever I go people will start staring at my kwid.

  20. Kwid is looking good bt the feature is not good like only body show is good.. No.a.c. Power steering.power Window. Safety bags. No disk break.. Very low feature…

  21. I want to buy….but No A.C. and basic model. soo thinking about Maruti Celerio….

  22. Kya upcoming carmai mirror joystick se opret hotehai? Upcoming kwid power starring, power Windows, abs , hai magar apne mirror ke bareme nahi bataya plz bataiye

  23. Maine just pichle mahine mein yeh car kharidi. Aur bahot jyaya santusht hun car se. Pehli baat toh yeh hai itne saare badhiya suvidhayein woh bhi itne kam daam mein mujhe milna mushkil tha. mujhe ek aise car chahiye the jo dekhne mein acchi ho, daam kam ho aur badhiya suvidhaun se bhari ho, meri saari jarurat renault kwid se poori ho gayi. dhanyawad.

  24. There are very few car manufacturers that are serving for the lower segments since 3-4 decades. Prominent amongst it is Maruti-Suzuki whose cars rule the Indian streets. Making bold moves and significant strategies, Renault is now rising up as the strongest contender of Maruti, particularly in the lower segment.

  25. Mere pass maruti ki celerio hai. Jab mere dost ne mujhse puccha 2.5 se 3 lakh ke bch kaunsi car behtar hogi toh maine celerio ka option diya lekin jab mujhe KWID ke baarin mein pata chala aur jab maine celerio aur KWID co compare kiya toh mujhe bhi KWID he behtar lagi. Main ab celerio ko bech kar KWID kharidne ki soch rha hun.
