The Kwid features a class-leading ground clearance of 180 mm.

The company has also released the technical specifications of the Kwid, which weighs a mere 660 kg. The Kwid measures 3,679 mm in length, 1,579 mm in width, 2,423 mm in wheelbase, 180 mm in ground clearance, and comes with a 300 liter boot.

Power comes from a 799 cc three-cylinder petrol engine which is capable of 54 PS and 72 Nm of torque. At the time of launch, the Kwid will be paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox only, though an AMT is expected later on.

Speaking of its integrated 7-inch Media NAV system, Renault says the system supports Bluetooth, iPhone and iPod, USB, AUX-in, SD and satellite navigation with a 1 year free map update.
