In case you need more proof of how much India loves the Kwid, here's food for thought. Within a year of launch, the French automaker has sold one lakh units of the hatchback. The Kwid made its global debut in India in May 2015 and was subsequently launched in September. Renault's most affordable offering in the country shot to fame overnight thanks to its styling, features and a relatively affordable sticker price.

The SUV-inspired design, with the smoked headlamps and the matte-black cladding clicked with the masses at large. To back that up, Renault loaded the Kwid with goodies like a touchscreen music system with navigation and a digital instrument cluster. Renault got the basics of cabin and boot space right as well, which appealed to the practical lot as well.

The Kwid was initially available with a sole 0.8-litre motor that developed 54PS and 72Nm. Building on its success, Renault introduced a 1.0-litre variant of the Kwid earlier this year. To cement the Kwid's positioning as a city runabout, an automated manual transmission was added to the feature list last month as well.

Prices for the Kwid start at Rs 2.64 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 4.25 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The baby Renault takes on the likes of the Hyundai Eon, the Maruti Suzuki Alto twins as well as its own sibling, the Datsun redi-GO.
