Renault Kwid AMT launch India

Renault, the French automaker had launched the Kwid Easy-R AMT in India in 2016. The vehicle was introduced at an introductory price of Rs 4.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This model is about Rs 30,000 pricier than the Kwid 1.0-litre manual variant. In order to further enhance its Renault Kwid AMT range, the company has introduced the Easy-R AMT in the lower-spec RxL variant. Adding to it, the RxL variant gets 1000cc engine along with manual gearbox as well. As a reminder, the 1.0L engine was earlier available only in the top-end EXT and RXT Opt variants. While the manual RxL 1.0L variant is priced at Rs 3.54 lakh, the RxL 1.0L AMT version is tagged at Rs 3.84 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.

Interestingly, the KWID AMT version is more fuel efficient than the regular Kwid 1.0L. As against the manual version’s 23.01kmpl, the AMT model delivers 24.04kmpl. With new RxL variant, the powerful version becomes more affordable. The RxL 1.0L MT variant is 22,000 more than the 800cc model, while the RxL 1.0L AMT version cost Rs 30,000 more than the 1.0L manual version. The new variants get all the features that are available in the Rxl 800cc model.

Renault Kwid AMT Interior

The Kwid AMT features a 5-speed Easy-R gearbox, and has three modes – Reverse, Neutral and Drive. Similar to the 2016 Renault Duster, the Kwid has a crawl function that helps it move ahead without any throttle inputs. Save for the new Easy-R badging, the vehicle looks no different than the Kwid 1.0L. Both the Kwid 1.0L and AMT share the engine – i.e. 1.0-litre, 67bhp petrol. With such power figures, the Renault Kwid 1.0L (MT & AT) are positioned against the Hyundai Eon 1.0 and Alto K10.  Also Read: Renault Kwid – All You Need to Know

Power for the Renault Kwid 1000cc and AMT come from a new 1.0-litre SCe (Smart Control efficiency) engine. This new powertrain is 14bhp more powerful than the regular 0.8-litre unit. It churns out a maximum power of 67bhp at 5,500rpm, while producing a peak torque of 91Nm at 4,250rpm. On the other hand, the current 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder engine delivers over 53bhp against 72Nm.

The Renault Kwid 1L gets a 5-speed manual transmission, while the Kwid Easy-R AMT gets an all-new 5-speed automated manual gearbox. The new Easy-R gearbox has been developed in-house using Renault’s Formula 1 expertise, says the company. The Easy-R AMT gearbox can be operated with an Innovative Shift Control Dial that will be positioned below the infotainment system on the centre console. It has three driving modes – Reverse, Neutral and Drive.

Renault’s new AMT unit is benefited with an advanced control unit that monitors the throttle input by optimising gear shifting and acceleration. It has a crawling function that works in reverse and forward motion. When brake is released, its crawl function helps the car move slowly at idle speed without using throttle.

Exterior design of both the new variants is largely identical to the regular model. Though, the black and white chequered decal with a ‘1.0’ badge on the lower side mark a difference.

      June 16, 2016

      We don’t think it will have any problem in handling regular hilly roads. But the car isn’t meant for off-roading though just like Maruti Alto 800 or Hyundai Eon. Since the launch is still away, it will be too early to comment on its on-road pricing. We’ll update you on this as soon as we hear from Renault.

    • Editorial Team

      Editorial Team
      June 26, 2016

      That’s because it has a smaller capacity engine which is not meant to be driven for long hours on highways. You’ll feel the same with the Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon too.

      The ABS-equipped Kwid will not come before 2017. And the company hasn’t yet revealed its plans of launching the diesel variant of the car. The provision of rear power window too may not come with the 1000cc or AMT version.

  36. Nanda
    July 19, 2016

    I have reviewed most entry level car models like Wagon R Automatic, Hyundai i10 Automatic and would like to go for Kwid 800 cc or 1000 cc AMT. To align with a family celebration, I am planning to book Kwid AMT (800 or 1000 CC) should the deliver come through by August / Sept 2016 or move back to Wagon R AMT instead.

    I have spoken to Renault Chennai several times seeking booking dates but did not get a firm reply yet. Between Maruti AMT at 15 +kmpl and Kwid AMT at 20+ kmpl, I see the advantage of fuel efficiency, feature rich and reasonably priced Kwid a good buy. I am undecided as concrete booking dates are not coming in. I am okay to go for 800 cc AMT.

    Can you use your good offices with Renault India to let know the exact booking dates for 800 cc or 1000 cc AMT to take a call or move to Maruti Wagon R AMT instead as time is short. Your advise will be very helpful.
