Renault Kwid Car Insurance
French automobile major, Renault has a very interesting history spanning 121 years. Known for their laurels during various motorsports and racing competitions, Renault’s foray into India dates back to 2008, when they set up their 1st ever design studio in Mumbai, under their new entity: Renault India Private Limited.
Renault Kwid, their best-selling entry-level crossover debuted in 2015, and was designed exclusively for Indian roads, and Indian users. Acclaimed Mathematician Gérard Detourbet led a team of engineers in India to design and develop Kwid, which is based on their Renault–Nissan Common Module Family modular architecture.
Renault Kwid is right now one of the best-selling compact hatchbacks, with aggressive pricing and laser-sharp focus on performance.

Renault Kwid Car Review
Once you sit inside Kwid, you cannot help but notice the great attention to detail which Renault engineers have given to the design aspect. Although the car is a small hatchback (3731 mm length and 1579 mm width), you will get a feel of spacious interiors and comfortable seating, thanks to the dual-tone interiors.
The 999 CC engine gives you a nice head start and acceleration, and maneuvering urban roads and traffic will be actually fun with a steady steering wheel and decent ground clearance. The 799 CC has slightly less power, due to obvious reasons, but the difference is negligible while driving. The smart SUV-type front design is yet another bonus point for this car.
