    Renault Kwid 2020 Petrol vs Competition - Price, Specs, Features Comparison

    by Lakshya Khanna Dates: 17 Jun 2020

    We compare Kwid against other A segment cars on the basis of prices, engine specs and dimensions to analyse how it holds up against the competition.

     


    Renault Kwid Vs Rivals

    Although the Renault Kwid is longer than the Ignis and qualifies to be in B1 segment, we’re including it in this comparison due to its lower price tag, narrower body and lower engine performance, which is comparable with A segment cars.

    Renault Kwid’s prices start from Rs. 2.92 lakh (ex-showroom) and it rivals the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Hyundai Santro, Maruti Suzuki Wagon R, Maruti Suzuki S-Presso, Maruti Suzuki Alto and Datsun redi-GO in the A segment. The complete price list of the petrol-powered Kwid is as follows.

    Amongst all the A segment cars, Datsun redi-GO has the highest ground clearance, so it should be the last car to bottom-out on uneven roads.

It’s tall boy design also gives it a better road presence than all other cars in this comparison.
