Default Re: Renault Kwid AMT (Automatic) : Official Review

Picked up the Kwid Climber AMT in September 2018. Have driven in the city for 1000 kms now. Finding it a breeze to drive with the creep function in dense traffic.

On road price was Rs. 5.74 lakhs.

Not missing the manual mode much, as I feel there is enough pep for overtaking and moving around in city traffic. A deep press of the throttle pedal postpones the upshifts and gives enough power when the situation warrants. Happy with the purchase so far !

Hi folks. Recently updated my ownership thread about my Renault Kwid AMT. Have also highlighted a few gremlins with the AMT although the clutch box has already been changed once.

Thanks a lot for reffering to my ownership thread here.

But I am afraid this was just the tip of the iceberg.

Sharing my experience of a driving a Kwid Easy-R - but please dont expect any additional information. My post here would be an echo of the points already listed earlier.

Was in Karwar over the weekend, and had some work at Gokarna. We took my friend's Easy-R - the car had done about 5700 km over the past one year. We covered about 150 km yesterday. Overall a nice package for where the car is positioned. While the car is quite bare-bones and the body is quite tinny, it does come with some points. Decent space, good seating height which gives sufficient view all around. The rear seat leg room is a little less, but boot space is decent. Steering and manuouverability is fair - no complaints. Gear shifts are noticeable, and the AMT means we cant push it much especially if one wants to push to overtake. Speed must be planned. But it cruises fairly well. Did a steady 60 odd, max 72 kph on the highway.

Did not try the audio system. Screen wasnt very clear for the reverse camera. AC was good. The door pockets fell half a cm short of holding a 1 litre water bottle.

Looks like a nice little car for intended market.

Completed 10,000 kms on my Kwid AMT Climber.

Pros: Nice and settled ride quality over varied surfaces, easy to manuever and park, comfortable driving position (I am a 6 footer), no rattles, and a good looker to my taste !

Cons: Some jerks/headbobbing felt during downshifts of the AMT, the small fuel tank needs weekly refills at the petrol bunk, the single wiper leaves a 4 inch wide unwept section on the windscreen corner at driver's side.

Overall a nice experience thus far.
