Hatchbacks are the most convenient mobility option out there on congested city roads. They provide the versatility of a small sized car such as zipping through traffic snarls more conveniently, parking in the least space possible and smaller turning radius, all this while not burning a hole in your pocket. In the present day used hatchback market, the Renault Kwid tops the charts because of the low maintenance-high return possibility that the car provides. The Kwid has been around in the Indian auto market for a while now, winning hearts, especially in metro cities due to its reliable specifications and high practicality.

The Renault Kwid is powered by 799cc 0.8Litre SCe (Smart Control efficiency) engine which generates a maximum power of 53ps at 5678rpm and a 1.0Litre SCe engine which generates maximum power of 68ps at 5500rpm. Both these engine comes with a 5-speed manual transmission while the 1.0Litre engine also comes with an automated manual transmission (AMT) variant. After the engine specifications, next thing one should consider during a car purchase is the design aesthetics. If you are looking for something different from the standard hatchback design, the Renault Kwid also come in special-edition models such as the Kwid 02 Anniversary edition, which has a sporty paint scheme and feature updates, or the Kwid Climber edition, which comes with all-new paint patterns and alloy wheels. The question that why Renault Kwid is the best-used hatchback one can buy can be answered by the fact that no major technical fault has been reported since Kwid's launch in India almost three years ago.
