Renault Kwid Plus Points

For an Entry Segment Car Buyer – what he can expect and be happy about Renault Kwid

Renault Kwid Negatives

Below are what Renault Kwid Owner Feels about the Shortcomings of the car

a)    Very Long Delivery Schedule. Takes the charm away

b)    With 4 People in the car & A.C. on the pick up performance turns out to be very average 

c)    Lot of noise when driving at higher speed, higher Vibration levels with AC

d)    Side mirrors are not aerodynamic and feels relative smaller. Best to upgrade them

e)    AC is okay but not very effective. Best to park car under shades

f)     On highways u cant overtake quickly . Engine creates lots of sound

g)    While driving a car on a steep with inclination for 45 degree on 1st Gear. the power was only like some one is pushing the vehicle.


Second Ownership Review on Renault Kwid - 10000 Kms Covered

I completed 10000 kms with Renault Kwid RXT in 10 Months. For the New buyers and people who are planning to go for this car, here is the review about the car.


1. This is an amazing car. Go get it guys. Far better than Alto Eon and Datsun Go. I get an average mileage of 16 Kmpl in city and 23 Kmpl in highways. When the A.C. is turned off it gives me an average mileage of 20 Kmpl in city and 26 Kmpl in highways.

2. This car gives me a feel of driving a big car and it has an amazing stylish looks as we all know.

3. Very easy to control the car in both towns and highways. Steering wheel is so light it gives us an easy feel to take curves.

4. Powerful AC chills cabin in seconds. Far better than many other cars in the market.

5. Amazing boot space and ground clearance bigger than Maruti Alto, Hyundai Eon, Datsun Go, Marut Swift, Hyundai i10, Ford Figo and new Tata Tiago.

6. Audio and mobile phone can be connected via Bluetooth which is not there in entry level cars.


1. Since the engine power is 800 cc when the ac is turned on we will get a jerking feel at 1st and 2nd gears. This is the time Kwid consumes a lot of fuel. So if we are driving in a slow moving traffic the mileage will drop down to 12-13 Kmpl

2. Since it is a light weight vehicle we feel shaky even on small portholes. Suspension is not so good

3. On wind screen does not have pressure as the water reaches only till the mid of the windscreen 

4. Engine noise is bit high and has Vibrations too - though much is not felt when we are inside the car 

5. Rear seat is bit congested and cannot accommodate no more than 3 people

6. Gear liver is not so smooth
