The KWID’s exterior is offset by a robust appearance due to its protective guards and chunky wings, it gets short overhangs and oversized wheels that protrude past the fenders and make the KWID look like a buggy car.

The interior of the KWID is designed to serve as a snug cucoon, inspired by a bird’s nest. The KWID features 2-tone elastomer material and rear airconditioning with controls on the driver’s seatback as well. The dashboard is an integrated tablet for commanding the navigation of the ‘Flying Companion.’

The Flying Companion is a technology feature in the KWID concept. Taking off from the rotating rear portion of the KWID’s roof, the Flying Companion can be operated in one of two modes – automatic mode using a pre-programmed flying sequence and GPS location as well as the manual mode, which enables the companion to be controlled by the tablet on the inside.

    That’s very sexy design…… slightly smooth and fine tuned could be very practical city car if bought with an efficient engine (don’t try to add more doors and seats)…Renault is good in creating new segments for India.
