At the point when the Renault Kwid was first appeared to us a couple of months back, it appeared somewhat difficult to accept truly. The guarantee was of a little reasonable car, but what we saw resembled a sufficient seal - styled like a SUV! At the time, Carlos Ghosn (Renault's worldwide CEO) had likewise guaranteed costs that stayed somewhere around 3 and 4 lakh. As it worked out that was a googly, in light of the fact that the Renault Kwid was in the long run propelled at 2.56 lakh, and finish off at 3.53 lakh! Those are close indistinguishable costs to the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, and lower than the Alto K10's. The Alto K10 offers the AMT alternative - something the Kwid guarantees to get in the new year.
So costs aside, is the Renault Kwid truly the car to bring down the compelling business sector pioneer then? All things considered, Hyundai has attempted with an aggressive bundle in the Hyundai Eon - yet it has not set the business sector ablaze, and is positively not a take value astute either. Also, that is a car from India's second biggest carmaker; the one and only with the scale to truly attempt and tackle Maruti Suzuki would it say it isn't? So did Renault stand a shot? Well the Kwid is considerably distinctive as an item and that is the place the open door lies.
Give me a chance to handle this piece by piece. In the first place up the looks. Put the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800/K10 beside the Renault Kwid, and it would seem that a no-challenge circumstance! The Alto family got new looks a year ago, yet the Kwid effortlessly emerges as the more plentiful, harder, contemporary and distinctive configuration. This was purposeful, and the SUV signals will just win over more purchasers. The bigger size and greater rump implies more lodge space as well. Inside the two cars you discover an utilization of plastic-y dark all around (not at all like the Eon's keen two-tone dash). Be that as it may, the Kwid's top end model elements a substantial touch-screen with route and Bluetooth - which is a major stride up in this portion. The Kwid and Alto both offer a discretionary driver-side airbag, yet Renault demands the Kwid is accident test prepared, while we know the Alto is most certainly not. Be that as it may I have no real way to substantiate Renault's case, as no tests have been carried out as far as anyone is concerned. The Renault Kwid's back safety belts are additionally not retractable which is not extraordinary in my book, but rather the car can surely suit more individuals (5 easily) and more baggage (300-liter boot is class-driving) than the Alto could.

Both cars have a 3-chamber 800cc motor, however the Renault produces 53bhp while the Alto has 47bhp on tap. The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 obviously gets a bigger motor with a yield of 66bhp. The Kwid stands its ground - keeping in mind the motor is a touch clattery, it seems to be refined and prepared to go. At remove the car appears to be more steady than the Alto, in any case it's not electric. The Alto's gearbox and guiding are two perspectives where the Suzuki involvement with little cars radiates through. The Kwid's gearbox feels lazy and its directing is not extremely exact - just about feeling so as to underline the car's greater size a touch unwieldy.
In any case, where the Renault Kwid races in front of its adversaries is in the taking care of and ride offices. The Kwid feels full grown and strong - taking awful streets in its step furthermore cornering with a great deal more certainty than the Maruti Suzuki Alto. Ride quality appears to be a bugger car's and that is in spite of the way that it is not an overwhelming car in any case. The Alto feels inconvenient and primitive by correlation. Inhabitant solace was never viewed as a major ordeal for any first time car purchaser - on the grounds that the current cars missed the mark on space and ride. The Kwid will change that benchmark - and if purchasers take to it bigly it will mean the opponents should backtrack to the planning phase with more noteworthy sincere!

So it appears as though I was preferential against the Alto at the very begin. The Renault Kwid came into this opposition all that much the better, greater, more cutting edge item on paper, thus it must be that on ground as well, correct? Well I drove both cars broadly and even gave Maruti's Alto K10 AMT a shot before deciding. Yes it's an easy decision from one viewpoint, yet exactly how much the Kwid has possessed the capacity to do is the thing that makes the story energizing. It is energizing in light of the fact that the Kwid will be the benchmark - keeping focused, yet offering a more present day car than this portion has found in a while. That will just mean the section will stay hot, with more esteem and better quality descending the chain to the purchaser. So I joyfully crown the Kwid from Renault as the new lord of the little car space. With an exceptionally sharp eye on what Maruti Suzuki and even Hyundai will bring us next!
