Renault Kwid on the road in India

Renault Kwid on the road in India

Deliveries of Renault Kwid have begun in India. The compact hatchback is aimed at the Indian A-segment, which accounts for about 25% of the market.
The car is expected to be a strong contender in that segment thanks to its SUV design, fuel efficiency, as well as functionalities important for the Indian consumer, including a large trunk and a spacious interior.

The car is built on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s Common Module Family A architecture, which covers the smallest and most affordable category of cars in the CMF family. The Alliance’s CMF system of modular vehicle architectures allows the company to build a wider range of vehicles from a smaller pool of parts, resulting in more savings and greater value for customers.
