Renault KWID World Premiere in India
CHENNAI,INDIA -- May 20, 2015: An Attractive, Innovative And Affordable Vehicle for International Markets
Renault, one of Europe's leading automobile manufacturers, revealed its all new global product 'KWID' in India today.
"With KWID, Renault continues to pursue its strategy of accessible mobility for all to step up its international growth. Using a new Renault-Nissan Alliance platform and following the trail blazed by the Duster, the KWID will enable Renault to continue its expansion and address the needs of customers who want a vehicle that is stylish, robust and easy-to-use," shared Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO, Groupe Renault, about the new launch by Renault.
KWID is a new and unique offering in the compact car segment, a vehicle with a dynamic profile and SUV look tailored to its dimensions. KWID is an attractive and modern car, with a spacious, comfortable interior that meets the everyday needs of all the family.
KWID overturns established A-segment design cues thanks to a robust, stylish exterior plus a modern, welcoming interior equipped with unprecedented features for its segment.
With its short front and rear overhangs and high ground clearance (180 mm), KWID conveys an immediate impression of strength and reliability. The KWID's upright front end and short front and rear overhangs provide owners with the look associated with SUVs.
The KWID's interior carries over the same confidence-inspiring styling as the exterior. The horizontal, uncluttered lines of the dashboard convey an impression of width and feature the cues associated with higher-end segments.
The piano black centre console comes with a chrome-surround and houses the Media-Nav multimedia/navigation system which comes with a seven-inch (18 cm) display. The user-friendly Media-Nav system includes the radio and Bluetooth technology for hands-free telephony which contributes to safer driving.
"We have a very clear focus on establishing ourselves in the growing and volume segments of the Indian automobile industry. Alongside our aggressive product introduction plans, we are also determined to offer customers the best experience with our brand and will continue to introduce several initiatives towards achieving that, encompassing our strategy of accessible mobility," shared Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations.
With KWID, Renault goes a step further with the launch of an attractive, innovative and affordable vehicle in the small car segment, selling at a price of between 3 and 4 lakhs in India.
KWID will be launched in India in the second half of 2015.
