Renault Kwid, since its launch, has been setting new benchmarks in the entry level hatchback segment. When launched first time, it was the first car in the segment to get such appealing muscular SUV-ish look and many features like the touchscreen display, GPS navigation and Bluetooth compatibility.
After introducing a bigger 1.0-litre engine, Renault has now teased the Kwid AMT which is expected to be launched in this month itself. The teaser image with tagline “Get Ready to Change the Way you Drive” shows a circular dial type of gear selector between R, N and D. And because of this kind of gear selector, the Kwid will not get manual shifting option like the AGS of the Alto K10.
Renault will fit its Easy-R AMT to the Kwid which is already used in the Duster and the Lodgy. The AMT option is most likely to be offered only with the 999 cc version of the Kwid which is available only in the top spec RxT and RxT (O) trims. The manual version of Kwid 1.0L makes 68 PS and 91 Nm with a fuel efficiency of 23.01 kmpl.
