Renault Kwid 1000cc Vs Tata Tiago – Here is a specifications based comparison between the two entry-level hatchbacks.
Launched in September 2015, the Renault Kwid small car has received an excellent response from car buyers in India. The company has registered over 1.65 lakh pre-orders for the 800cc model, which currently commands a waiting period of around 6-9 months. Over 80,000 units of the hatch have already been delivered to customers. With an aim to capitalize on the growing popularity of the Kwid, Renault India has launched the 1000cc version of the hatchback that offers a better value for money proposition. The vehicle carries forward the same SUV inspired profile, touchscreen navigation and huge 300-litres of boot space. It is the longest car in its league, making it a worthy competitor to cars above one segment. This small car directly rivals the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Alto K10, Wagon R and the Tata Tiago.
