(ex-Delhi). The Kwid has sold over 100,000 cars since its launch about a year
ago. The AMT variant is priced Rs 30,000 more than the Kwid 1 MT litre version.
The Renault Kwid AMT comes

Easy-R Gear Box: A clutch free
driving experience that combines the fuel economy and performance of a manual
transmission with the convenience of automated gear shifting. The Innovative

for ease of use. An advanced control unit automatically optimizes gear shifting
in accordance with driving conditions for smooth and regular acceleration to

the infotainment system on the centre console. The car will have an advanced
throttle control unit that would monitor the throttle input by optimising
acceleration and gear shifting.

deliver 67hp of maximum power and peak torque of 91Nm@4,250rpm, with fuel
