Renault Kwid is bread and butter product of the French carmaker in India. Ever since its launch, the Kwid has always been among the top selling cars in the country. With an aim to give it a constant sales boost, the company kept bringing in special editions of the car. Initially, the hatchback was introduced with an 800cc engine, followed by a more powerful 1000cc and an AMT (automated manual transmission) version. The carline was further expanded with an accessorised Kwid Climber edition.
Now, the French carmaker has come up with the Kwid ‘Live For More Collection’. This package includes new body graphics and decals adding more to its sporty appearance. Renault India has announced that the Kwid ‘Live For More Collection’ has received 1,000 pre-orders and 10,000 queries in less than the first week of its launch.
