The Kwid is an extremely important car for Renault. Renault became popular in the Indian market when it launched the Duster. However, its sales grew immensely only after the Kwid was launched. The Renault Kwid quickly became the best-seller in its segment.

It even challenged some of Maruti Suzuki's best-selling mass market cars like the Alto 800 and Alto K10, which is an impressive feat. However, the Kwid soon became old and people started losing interest in it. The slowdown in the automotive industry only added to Renault's woes.

The front end of the hatchback is heavily inspired by the Renault K-ZE on sale in the Chinese market. Well, the K-ZE is in essence an electric version of the Kwid, so it is fair to use the exact same design.

The Kwid Climber is currently priced at Rs 4.55 lakh for the manual transmission and Rs 4.85 lakh for the AMT variant. We can expect a price hike for the new model thanks to the additional cost of developing BS-VI engines and the price of the new equipment in the 2020 model.
