The Renault Kwid made quite some noise when it entered the Indian market in September 2015. The budget car from Renault India won many hearts with its spacious interior, mini-Duster looks, reasonably power 0.8-litre petrol engine that was even quite efficient, and enough features for a car in this price bracket. Around a year later, the Kwid received a 1.0-litre version to take on the Alto K10, and a year hence, it even got an AMT version for the bigger engine variant, which, again, took on the counterparts from Maruti Suzuki. Almost four years down the line, the Renault Kwid continues to enjoy pretty good popularity in both new and used car markets. Here’s all there’s to know about the Renault Kwid price for a new and old car, mileage, specifications, review and more.

If you remember, the Renault Kwid started life as a bold concept when it was put on display for the first time at the Delhi Auto Expo in 2014. The entry-level hatchback has received a pretty good response from the small car buyers, with its mini-Duster looks being one of its biggest USPs. The Kwid is the only vehicle in its segment to have given some fight to the formidable Maruti Alto. It has also been responsible for keeping its company afloat during times of less demand for models like the Duster, Lodgy and Captur.

Other than its robust looking exterior, the small car has even impressed with its mature ride quality and a high-quality touchscreen infotainment unit that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Even the AMT option has turned out to be a boon for not just the manufacturer but also for the small car buyers, who can enjoy the convenience of an automatic without really spending too much money. It won’t be wrong to say that the Kwid is among the most practical and well-sorted models in its segment and offers a package that just can’t be ignored.
The Renault Kwid offers a practical and feature-loaded package at prices on par with all of its rivals. Not only is it more spacious than its rivals but also offers a host of segment-first goodies.

No, the Renault Kwid doesn’t have an automatic transmission. However, its 1.0-litre version does offer an optional AMT, which is an Automated Manual Transmission that offers automatic gear shifts. For all the practical reasons, an AMT can be considered as an automatic transmission as it mitigates the need for a manual clutch and changes gear ratios automatically.
As we said, the Renault Kwid is easily among the most well-sorted options in its segment. Not only is it a viable alternative to the Maruti Alto, but it is even better than its top-selling rival in some aspects. It’s a great choice for entry-level car buyers.
While its Duster-inspired design might make you feel otherwise, the Kwid is a small car with some SUV attributes like a rugged-looking exterior and a high ground clearance.
The Renault Kwid recently received an update to its safety net, which resulted into the addition of a driver’s airbag, reverse parking sensors, high-speed alert, ABS+EBD and a seat belt reminder. This has helped the vehicle comply with BNVSAP norms. However, the basic structure has remained the same, which is worrying if you consider that Global NCAP safety test body rated the car’s structure as unstable in the event of a crash.
As the Renault Kwid is quite popular in the new car market, it’s even in demand in the used car market. This leads to a reasonably good resale value, which can be compared to that of the Maruti Alto.
Colour is a matter of personal choice, and hence, it’s tough to say which is the best colour for the Renault Kwid. However, the small car is available with six colours.
Incase if you are planning to buy an old car, a used Renault Kwid makes tremendous sense for anyone looking for a practical and a hassle-free small car that is also affordable to buy and maintain. The Kwid has been around for long and has already proven to be a reliable offering. Except for some basic issues, like a faulty accelerator wire, there is not much one needs to keep in mind while looking for a used Kwid. As can be seen in our table below, there are various models available in our used car inventory, and you can choose from a wide range of options as per your exact needs.
