Renault India to launch Kwid AMT soon

Snapshot: Renault Kwid 1L AMT will most likely make its launch on 7th November.

Renault India is all set to add another derivative to its Kwid lineup this month and it will be introduced in an AMT version in the Indian market. Bookings for the Kwid AMT has already begun with a token amount of Rs 10,000 and deliveries are expected to start by the end of this month. The company unveiled both the Kwid 1.0 and the 1.0 AMT at the 2016 Auto Expo, earlier this year.

The Easy-R AMT is a five-speed automated manual gearbox that will be likely to be introduced in the top of the line RXT and RXT (O) variants and will compete with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki’s Alto K10 with AMT. Inside, it will come equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system with two speakers, front power windows, and remote keyless entry.

Renault Kwid AMT will draw its power from a 1.0-litre SCe engine that will more powered up to 68 hp ant will be coupled up with an Easy-R AMT. Built on the company’s highly flexible CMF-A platform, it will be a bit pricier than the regular Kwid 1.0 hatchback.

Though, there is no news on the pricing of the hatchback, but according to the dealers, hinting that it will priced Rs 45,000 more than the regular version. So we can expect it to be priced at the Rs 4.2 lakh (ex showroom) as compared to the Alto K10 VXI AMT that is priced at Rs 4.05 lakh. It is not confirmed yet, but most likely it will make its launch in the first week of November.

Recently, Renault's Kwid achieved a remarkable over 56,000 sales in the first of the fiscal year.
