2016 Auto Expo: Renault Kwid 1.0 Easy-R to be unveiled

01 Feb 2016 / 2

The Renault Kwid has got a flying start in the Indian market, thanks to its SUV-inspired styling. At the 2016 Auto Expo, Renault will add a new variant to the range, called the Kwid 1.0 Easy-R. As the name suggests, the car will get a 1.0-litre engine that is expected to produce over 75PS of power and will rival cars like the Alto K10 and the Eon 1.0. The Easy-R suffix points towards a automated manual transmission (AMT) belonging to the family that Renault previewed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The model will differentiate itself from its 800cc engined sibling with a β€˜1.0’ badging on the door cladding and the boot-lid, while an β€˜Easy-R’ decal will find space on the C-pillar, much like the β€˜AWD’ decal in the Duster AWD. A chrome grille could come by default on the range-topping Kwid 1.0 Easy-R. More details and photos coming soon from the show floor. Stay tuned.
