Renault Kenya’s only A-segment offering.

As Renault continues expanding its footprint in the low-cost passenger car segment, the company has launched the Renault Kwid as its most-affordable car in Kenya. The new Renault Kwid is priced from KSH 1,234,567 (INR 8.18 lakhs) in Kenya and is the company’s only A-segment car currently available in the country.

Also among the new markets for the Renault Kwid this year, will be Brazil, where the car will reportedly debut at the 2016 Sao Paulo Auto Show in November. The Brazilian-spec Renault Kwid will be modified for improved safety and better quality. It will likely be ethanol compatible as well.
