India launched the one litre petrol version of its successful car Kwid for Rs
3.83 lakh (ex showroom Delhi). The Kwid powered by an 800cc engine was launched
in 2015 and has since become a runaway hit for the French company in the
country. The company has now launched the car with a 1 litre SCe engine option.
1.0 litre RXT—Rs. 3.83 lakh
1.0 litre RXT (O)—Rs. 3.96 lakh
FULL ROAD TEST REVIEW
Kwid was always a bold looking vehicle; it’s now got a stronger heart. Except
for the heart transplant, there is nothing substantially different compared to
its 800cc sibling. The 1 litre (999cc three cylinder) engine option will only
be offered in the RXT variant of the model. The remaining three variants STD,
RXE and RXL will only have an 800cc engine. The only two additional features
that the 1 litre RXT model will have are the two-tone gloss grey Outside Rear
View Mirrors and the speed-sport designer decals on the doors which are quite
to the engine, it’s definitely a new one, but kind of carved out from the
existing 800cc one, for the additional 200cc capacity. The engine produces a
peak power of 67 hp at around 5500rpm and a peak torque of 91 Nm at 4250rpm.
RXT version will have two models, one priced at Rs 3.83 lakh and the other at Rs.
3.96 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The 800cc (0.8L) engine Kwid is priced between
Rs. 2.64 lakh and Rs. 3.73 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
