Renault did a magic with the Kwid's exterior design. It looks awesome at any angle you watch it from.

Thank you for directing me to this wonderful thread Prasanna.

Marvelous job with the pictures, especially of details such as the slats within the Renault logo, the small space from where the mosquito got inside the headlamp cluster, etc.

Hello Dhana,

I had a Kwid 800 that I crashed on October 6. The car had clocked 25thousand Kms and was quite happy with it. Was doing around 80 and had to swerve to avoid hitting a lone bison and rammed a tree head on.
The car is totaled and I am planning to buy the 1 Litre this time.
I had changed to Michelin energy xm2 next upsize from stock and think you should do it too. Really enhances the drive quality and apperance too.

Curious, are the wheel caps this color for the white shade only? I had silver wheel caps Plan to buy alloys from the dealer? Do you have any pictures of the alloys?

Very nice review.

Benny

Ah , a review on the Kwid 1 liter. How I was eagerly waiting for this!!! I came across your review at a time, when I am expecting help the most. And its more than a detailed user review for sure. Reading your review it feels like you have written from your heart, rather than using classy choosy "bidirectional" words and jumbles. I really loved reading every statement of your observations. Thank you

Recently I made a visit to the nearest Renault dealership (an whooping 20 kms one way) and was pretty amused with the overall look and feel of this little humble big-star. The most fascinating part was the 130l boot space, which is sufficient for a family of three for some long trips. One can enjoy the cabin space to the fullest. Probably some little storage space for the rear benches would help the occupants, but who cares for them Less the chubby holes, less the amount of dirt etc left behind by the occupants. (being optimistic)

But the amusing part was the ICE specifications. The sales consultant advised me that I cannot fit an external speaker pair on the rear parcel tray because the electrical cannot take the load (mine is a JBL 949). The only option for me will be to fix a relay and that would void the warranty. Also there is no provision of replacing the stock pair with mine.

As you have been using your Kwid for a pretty long time, please can you advise on the same? Is it indeed not possible without voiding the warranty?
