Yes, Kwid is a nice car to buy, I think, it is the most unique looking car in its segment. The SUV proportions and high stance gives it an appealing look. Cabin appears airy and overall fit and finish is good. All the seats have good cushioning with legroom and headroom being in plenty. The touch screen infotainment system gets all sorts of connectivity options including AUX, USB, iPod and Bluetooth along with GPS navigation.
Talking about the mechanicals, it comes with 0.8 liter and 1.0 liter engine options. 0.8 liter engine discharges peak power of 53 bhp and peak torque of 72 Nm while 1.0 liter engine discharges peak power of 67 bhp and peak torque of 91 Nm. The ARAI claimed mileage of Kwid 0.8 is 25.1 kmpl while of Kwid 1.0 is 23 kmpl.
The car potters around at city speeds very comfortably and there is good balance between ride & handling characteristics of this car. The suspension setup is pretty nice and absorbs the majority of bumps. Braking performance is also good. Though steering could have done with more feedback though.
The car offers a lot of things at a lesser price than its competitors, in my opinion it is a good value for money.
