So far, I have not seen any other colour. Also not sure whether they have started delivering cars.

Has anyone from this forum taken delivery of this car?
I am getting the car delivered tomorrow from Coimbatore. Actually, I should have got delivery yesterday if they hadn't delayed issuing me the chassis and engine number. Opted for insurance outside of the dealership.

The red ones are demo cars. There is no option for internally adjust mirrors as an option.

Congratulations for the purchase, and wish you the best for your new car!
Hope you are taking delivery near Saibaba temple?
Waiting for your ownership report!
By the way, even as an accessory, they are not providing the internally adjustable ORVMs? I read somewhere that Renault are providing different types of ORVMs as accessory. If they are not providing, its quite strange - the user has to pull down the power window to adjust ORVM?

They don't have floor mats in stock let alone the ORVMs!

I did a test drive of Kwid, today. It is an overall better package than Maruti alto or Hyundai Eon.

I am sharing few pictures of the base variant with AC only.

Kwid debuts at 18th place in the October 2015 Car Sales numbers with 5195 dealer dispatches. No real impact seen yet to either the Alto or the Eon numbers for this month.

A decent start for Renault, but I think due to production constraints, they are unable to take full advantage of the initial hype. In my view, they should have planned for at least 10-12 K dispatches per month and taken full advantage of the initial booking surge. That would have put them in the Top 5 and set the tone for the continued success.

With long waiting periods and bookings closed, it will not take long for an entry level customer to look elsewhere. Would be quite disappointing if it settles at 5-6K.

Did they offer you a test drive after you booked the car? It works that way in Coimbatore, you can test drive after you book! Otherwise, only look.

Spotted a Red Kwid today in Brookefield. This is the first Kwid I spotted on road other than demo car. The car was zipping through the traffic with 5 people on board.

Spotted a red Kwid at Madurai. It looked awesome in person. Definitely a looker, compared to the Alto and Eon.

IMHO, the interiors are plain ugly.

Overtime they start fading and it looks even uglier then.

Just my 2ct's!

Whoever owns a Kwid here, please comment on the mileage you are getting. Multiple reports are coming in with some even going to 9kmpl.

Can you share us the sources of these reports? 9kmpl is really bad for a 800cc and I am expecting real world figures of 13-15 kmpl in city.

This is one. The guy was a big fan & a source of many pre-release shots.

Came across this review yesterday which i thought was just some usual bad mouthing. Interestingly, the 9kmpl figures in both.

I called @Lokesh based on the mobile number he provided on one of his tweets to Renault India. It seems, the mileage calculation was not done the right way. I've asked him to follow the tankful to tankful method. He told, he will do so and will let me know the correct mileage.

Also, on the same carwale reviews, I also see people mentioning 20 kmpl and 24 kmpl as the mileage.

9 kmpl for a 25 kmpl ARAI certified car is highly unlikely. We'll have to wait more to get the actual figures.
