The smallest crossover in Renault’s lineup will cost just 3, 500 euros on the Indian auto market.
If you live anywhere outside the Indian market, don’t get too excited about this news because we will remind you that the Renault Kwid is exclusively aimed towards this Asian country. The model in question is the smallest crossover in the carmaker’s lineup and it is slotting just below the Captur. This has been introduced earlier this year and it is now getting ready to arrive to its future customers in India. According to the local media, the model in question has a starting price of just 3,500 euros (256,968 rupees equivalent) and for the money customers will be getting some extremely limited features.
The price is making the Renault Kwid one of the cheapest SUVs in the world and it is even cheaper than the Renault Pulse, the company’s version of the Nissan Micra, which is also offered in India. The bumpers will not be finished in the same color as the rest of the body, you will not find any fog lights, any air conditioning, radio, glovebox or interior lighting. The carmaker is offering the model in four different trim levels, the STD, the RXE, the RXL and the RXT and, leaving the jokes on the name of the entry-level aside we will tell you that the range-topping version will be coming with a driver’s airbag, front electric windows, power steering, Bluetooth and air conditioning as well. No matter what version will be chosen, the same 800 cc engine will be found under its hood, rated at 54 HP and 72 Nm of torque and connected to a 5-speed manual transmission. The model stands at 3.68 meters in length and 1.58 meters in width and it has a ground clearance of 18 cm.
