The Renault Kwid is an entry-level crossover produced by the French car manufacturer Renault, initially intended for the Indian market. The production version was unveiled in May 2015. A concept version was previously unveiled in February 2014.
The Kwid has been elaborated by a French engineers team settled in India by Gérard Detourbet, a mathematician described as “an innovation a minute” who led the development team for the first-generation Renault Logan.
The Kwid is the first car to be based on the new CMF-A platform jointly developed by Renault and Nissan. It is slightly larger than Renault’s smallest conventional vehicle, the Twingo with a high sitting position and a 180 mm (7.1 in) ride height. At launch, the engine was a single three-cylinder, 800 cc unit with a 54 hp (40 kW) power output and 72 N·m(53 lb·ft) torque, coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission. Suspension is made up of McPherson struts on front and a torsion beam on rear. The car has a significative percentage of parts localisation and engineering by local Renault’s personnel. The Kwid is aimed at competing with other small cars within the Indian market, as the Suzuki Alto, and incorporates uncommon equipment for its segment as a multimedia touchscreen. It was unveiled at Chennai on 20 May 2015 by Renault’s CEO Carlos Ghosn. Ghosn said the car would be “a game changer for Renault in India.” Sales started in September and had a “flying start” of 25,000 bookings in 2 weeks and 50,000 in 5 weeks, then 70,000 in 2 months, getting 10% of effective market shares in its segment.
The Kwid is 3,679 mm (144.8 in) long, 1,478 mm (58.2 in) high and 1,579 mm (62.2 in) wide. It has a large 2,422 mm (95.4 in) wheelbase and has an 180mm ground clearance. According to the Indian newspaper The Financial Express, Kwid’s 300-litre boot space is “the most voluminous in its class” and its fuel efficiency is “class-leading”, at 25.17 km/L (71.1 mpg-imp). The Kwid comes with as many as 60 accessories for detailed personalisation. It will come with a 2 year/50,000 km warranty, for a price from Rs 2.56 lakh for the Kwid STD, to 3.53 lakh for the Kwid RXT (O).
At tests conducted in 2016, the Kwid scored a 0-star rating from British agency Global NCAP, a rating also achieved by many entry-level competitors in the Indian market, including localised versions of the Suzuki Alto, the Hyundai Eon, the Tata Nano, the Suzuki Celerio and the Ford Figo. The Kwid was also criticised for being one of the Indian models not having airbags as standard. Renault and other car manufacturers made objections to Global NCAP for its methodology and for ignoring India’s own safety criteria.
