Variant: 1.0 RxT(O) Kilometres driven: 3,731 Like: Space, ride quality Dislike: Fuel tank capacity Since a major chunk of my driving is through one of the most congested parts of Pune, a small car is all I need for my daily commute to office. The Kwid sounds like a usual three-cylinder but without being bothersome. The power delivery in the 1.0 feels more linear than in its smaller sibling, and this is a b oon during city commutes. Moreover, the extra power comes in handy when I go out of town. I also like the fact that the satellite navigation is fairly accurate and is a premium feature often seen in cars belonging to a higher segment.
As you must have read, some of my colleagues drove a Kwid AMT up to Khardung La, the world’s highest motorable road. Their happy tales about Renault’s rugged ability and reliability have really doubled my confidence in the car.
There’s one issue that I am struggling with in this weather, though. The car is equipped with a single wiper which doesn’t clean the windscreen completely. This blotch obstructs the driver’s line of vision. Apart from this, there’s nothing to complain about.
