As an innovator since 1898, Renault says it has constantly sought to pioneer new ideas, question conventional thinking, and reinvent the way we use cars.
Renault has now launched the Kwid, a global car made for easy living and a new way to go motoring. Built on a new platform common to Renault and Nissan, the Kwid reaps full benefit from the alliance’s pooled resources and expertise. The new model vehicle is adapted to the specific needs of markets such as India, and will enable Renault to push ahead with the deployment of its international expansion strategy.
Carlos Ghosn, chairman and CEO of Groupe Renault, says: “With Kwid, Renault continues to pursue its strategy of accessible mobility for all to step up its international growth. Using a new Renault-Nissan Alliance platform and following the trail blazed by the Duster, the Kwid will enable Renault to continue its expansion and address the needs of customers who want a vehicle that is stylish, robust and easy to use.”
Renault says the Kwid overturns established A-segment design cues, thanks to a robust, stylish exterior plus a modern, welcoming interior equipped with features normally associated with models from the next segment up.
This eminently modern newcomer features SUV styling and construction, combining generous cabin space with unprecedented features for its segment, while its compact footprint makes it particularly versatile.
The French carmaker says quality interior appointments include a modern media-nav navigation/multimedia system, complete with large seven-inch touchscreen display and Bluetooth connectivity.
Renault has long showcased its ability to develop unique, innovative vehicles designed to meet the specific needs of its international markets.
With the introduction of the Kwid, the brand has gone a step further down the road of designing attractive, affordable vehicles in the small-car segment.
The Kwid will be launched in India in the second half of 2015 with a price tag of between three and four lakhs (approximately €4,000 to €5,700 ).
