At this price theKwid, which is Renault's first A-segment car, will take on tough competition from the segment leading Maruti Suzuki Alto and also from the Hyundai Eon and Datsun Go. The top-spec trim of the Kwid costs Rs 3.53 lakh, making it the second most affordable car of the four after the Alto 800.
