The Renault Kwid is offered in two engine variants in India.

It is yet to be known if Renault will launch both engine variants of the Kwid in Indonesia. The entry-level hatchback is available with 0.8- and 1.0-liter three-cylinder SCe petrol engines in India. However, if in the future, Renault wants to avail Indonesia’s LCGC (Low Cost Green Car) tax benefits, the 1.0-liter engine will qualify for some amount of subsidy.

According to Indonesian regulations, an LCGC must pack a petrol engine displacing between 980 cc – 1,200 cc and is capable of a fuel economy of at least 20 km/l. It should also be manufactured in Indonesia with a high degree of localization.
