Do you like Kwid?
As Renault’s newest entry-level car, Kwid was first launched in the Indian market, and soon broke through the 100000 vehicle mark. Such excellent achievements also let the car factory position this car as an emerging market fighter and target Latin America and other markets for sales. Therefore, in order to thank the Indian market for its great help, Renault has recently launched a brand-new tez car with racing elements for the Indian market. Let’s take a look at what gifts the car factory has prepared for young consumers.
It is believed that readers can see at a glance the black-and-white square plaques used by the new car. In order to match the decorative strips full of racing atmosphere, tez will provide two car colors, red and white, to provide more eye-catching visual effect. It is worth mentioning that in terms of details, the new car also adds fluorescent green color to the rear-view mirror, wheel rim and roof, which makes the new car present a very lively texture.
As an entry-level model, tez offers two types of small displacement power specifications of 0.8L and 1.0L respectively, and provides the five speed manual transmission system and AMT transmission according to the user’s needs. The former has 54hp maximum horsepower and 7.1kgm peak torque, while the 1.0L engine can play 68hp maximum kinetic energy, which is believed to be able to meet the needs of most urban users Driving demand.
It’s easy to shift gears because you’ll shift gears often in the city. The engine’s lack of low-end grunting and high gear ratios means regular pedal and gear inputs are required to keep pace with the rest of the city’s traffic. Constant gear change is to make the clutch slip in higher gears; an easy to learn procedure, but it will lead to increased clutch wear.
Drive gently and Kwid rewards you for higher mileage, as you’ll find out later. If the manual shift is clean, then AMT will be different. It has no creeping function, which means, unlike traditional automatic transmissions, it does not start to move when you remove the brakes. But offline movement is smooth and can be easily controlled.
The automatic device greatly reduces the vibration at the speed of 16.28 kmpl and 19.09 kmpl respectively. The only parameter of AMT that is obviously better is braking. Auto takes 53.16 meters to stop from 100kmph, while manual takes 57.02 meters. As there is no ABS, the wheels are easy to lock under such severe braking. Because cars tend to creep and wiggle a little bit, it’s not very encouraging. That is, you shouldn’t be bothered in the city — the bite seems to fit and the pedals have enough feedback. The ride and handling wid is primarily a city car, so the suspension is set on the softer side, which gives it excellent driving quality on potholes, broken roads or circuit breakers. As we have said, it is not without defects in material standards, and there is room for improvement in highway etiquette. But if you think of the Kwid as your first car, you use it mainly in the city — it’s worth considering.
On the market level of Kwid , although it is said that the car is positioned as an entry-level car to enter the emerging market, it was reported last year that the car manufacturer intended to introduce the car into the European market for sale, which may be just to cope with the increasingly stringent emission regulations in the European market and the increasing demand for small displacement vehicles, Although it is not possible to estimate the sales performance of the car in the European market at present, the importance of kwid to car manufacturers in emerging markets can be seen at least from the release of India’s exclusive tez.
