Renault is changing the game once again by introducing the all-new Kwid in the domestic market. The first commuter SUV is set to steal the spotlight at the 2017 Buenos Aires Motor Show.
Top features: 14” wheels, 2 side airbags, 2 front airbags, 2 ISOFIX anchorage points, pre-wiring for accessory-fit radio and speaker system, gear shift and driving style indicator.
Top features: power steering, air-conditioning, power door locks and windows. Options: radio with Bluetooth, USB, AUX - R$ 35,390.
The all-new Renault Kwid can now be pre-ordered in Brazil through the brand’s website (www.renault.com.br) or the model’s minisite (www.kwid.com.br). Customers willing to pre-order the model have to make a R$1,000 down payment in up to three installments with a credit card.
The advantages of pre-ordering include guaranteed price, first scheduled maintenance service free of charge, a five-year warranty for those choosing the Renault Bank to finance their purchase, and priority delivery.
Renault Kwid will be offered in three trim versions – Life, Zen and Intense. Body colors include Red Ochre, Fire Red, Ivory White, Snow White, Star Silver, and Pearly Black.
Top features: power door mirrors, chrome fog lights, Media Nav 2.0, rearview camera, power trunk release, Flexwheel wheels and folding key fob.
THE ENTRY-LEVEL SUV
- Intense + Connect Pack - R$ 39,990
The Kwid stands out for its higher driving position compared to urban commuters, raised ground clearance (18 cm, similar to midsize SUVs), as well as outstanding approach (24°) and departure (40°) angles.
The Kwid gives the impression of being bigger than its 3.68m length, which is confirmed when getting inside, thanks to its 2.42m wheelbase. Unlike other models in the compact segment, rear seat occupants have unmatchable comfort. The same goes for its best-in-segment trunk space, with 290 liters.
Equipped with the new 3-cylinder 1-liter SCe powerplant, it delivers 70 hp on ethanol and 66 hp on gas, with maximum torque of 9.8 kgfm (ethanol) and 9.4 kgfm (gas). Fuel economy is Kwid’s watchword, with 15.2 km/h on the urban driving cycle on gas and 10.5 km/l on ethanol.
Kwid is introducing in the compact segment two front and two side airbags across the range, in addition to two ISOFIX anchorage points for child seats – a key item to ensure child safety inside the cabin.
The warranty period also comes as a novelty. In addition to the standard three-year warranty period, Renault offers a five-year warranty for those choosing the Renault Bank to finance their purchase. In addition, scheduled maintenance service plans are offered for less than R$ 1 a day, for three years.
