Renault Kwid

| Home / Renault / List of Renault Kwid Models without Timing Belt

The Renault Kwid is an urban vehicle or city car (A-segment in Europe) manufactured by the French marque Renault. It is a vehicle similar to the Renault Twingo, but focused on the South American and Indian markets. It has been manufactured since 2015 and replaced the Renault Clio Mio.

The Kwid is a hatchback developed by the Renault-Nissan alliance. It is based on the group’s CMF-A platform, and features a crossover body work. The manufacturer’s idea with this model is none other than to compete with the Suzuki Alto and the Hyundai Eon.

The Kwid is manufactured in both India and Brazil, although the Brazilian version is more modern and has some additional improvements. In terms of safety, this vehicle has better equipment in its Latin American version, as it complies with the regulations required by Mercosur. An electric version called Renault Kwid E-Tech is also sold in this market, launched in 2022 (also known as Renault City K-ZE). In addition, the Kwid had a small redesign with exterior changes and improvements in the infotainment system in 2019.

In terms of powertrains, the Renault Kwid is equipped with two different engines that vary according to the market. The model version for Asia has a 800 cubic centimeter three-cylinder engine with twin overhead camshafts. On the other hand, the South American alternative has a 1-liter three-cylinder engine from the sCe family. This is the same engine used in the Renault Twingo and Smart Forfour in Europe.
