You assume that the car has stalled but power to the car resumes shortly.

Its the 800cc Kwid.
I have experienced this. The problem occurs when you have stopped the car, zero accelerator input and when you depress(more than 50%) the accelerator all of a sudden- Boom, no response from the engine. Release the accelerator, change the the gear and you are all set immediately. If you continue in same gear, it takes a while for the engine to respond back. Count that as a negative score to the engine. Other solution is, when on halt, keep the rpm slightly above idling speed, I believe when AC is on, there is too much load on engine and gets confused if to switch off or continue!

This used to happen to me on our Kwid 800. However, it was resolved by an ECM update. Do check if you can get the ECM updated with the latest version.

Renault KWID face-lift spied on test in Southern Europe,

there won’t be any drastic design improvements. The rugged, easy-on-the-eye exterior will receive only a couple of minor tweaks, like a revised front bumper with new fog lamps and a restyled rear bumper

Does the embossed edges around fog lamps hint at DRL's for top variant? They should have provided adjustable ORVM's in the facelift version.
