Renault India has launched the 2018 Kwid with a slight dose of chrome and additional features at no extra cost. The features include a standard emergency locking retractor (ELR) for rear passengers, which allows free passenger movement and locks on emergency brake application, preventing the passenger from falling forward.
The Kwid AMT is now available with a creep function which eliminates the need to step on the accelerator to move the car forward in bumper-to-bumper traffic situations. The Datsun redi-GO, which shares the 1.0-litre engine and AMT with the Kwid, however, had the creep feature beforehand. Renault calls this feature ‘Traffic Assist’.
Here are the new features added to each variant:
Renault Kwid RXL variant
Front power windows
Remote central locking
Full wheel covers
Renault Kwid RXT(O) variant
Chrome on the front grille and the gear knob
12V socket for rear passengers
Rear parking camera
Renault Kwid Climber
Prices remain unchanged for the 2018 model, starting from Rs 2.67 lakh and going up to Rs 4.59 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The Kwid is available in 5 variants: Standard, RXE, RXL, RXT (O) & Climber. Here’s how it stacks up against its immediate rivals in terms of pricing.
