Re­nault Kwid

Car India - - OUR CARS -

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.
