Five labours of the Renault Kwid

Renault dropped a bomb on us in 2014 with the KWID concept. As radical as it was, it was probably the first time an all-new concept from a European company had debuted in India. And when it transformed into a production car, it was launched with a promise – a promise of being an alternative to the Altos and the Santros.

The Kwid’s story is more like the David and Goliath story, with the little car having to fight a mammoth brand like Maruti and proven products like the Alto. And yet, it has managed to make its mark and we are here to find out the reasons for it. So we put the Renault Kwid 1.0-litre through the five labours that we have chosen and see how it performs.
