Renault India has now made the 1.0L MT and AMT options available in the middle RXL grade of Renault Kwid. Prices start at INR 3.54 Lakhs for the 1.0L MT variant and INR 3.84 Lakhs for the 1.0L AMT variant (both ex-showroom Delhi). The 1.0L MT RXL is INR 22,000 more expensive than the Kwid RXL 0.8L.
Previously exclusive to the RXT grade, buyers of the RXL grade get a single DIN audio system and power steering, but lose features like driver’s airbag, fog lamps, trip computer, central locking and MEDIANAV touchscreen display.
Under the hood is a 1.0-litre SCe three-cylinder petrol engine that develops 68 PS at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm. Power goes to the wheels via a 5-speed manual or Easy R 5-speed automated manual transmission. The ARAI-rated fuel economy figure is 24.04 km/l.
With the introduction of the 1.0L powertrain in the lower RXL grade, the Renault Kwid 1.0L MT and AMT are now more affordable to customers looking for more power from the A-segment hatchback.
