Well kitted and super economical budget buy!

 

In Dynamique mode the Renault Kwid may be one of the most affordable small vehicles available on the market, yet it comes with loads of features that makes it extremely attractive as an entry-level buy. The Kwid also offers increased ride height which ensures added practicality and comfort considering our roads are mostly ridden with potholes and speedbumps. But certainly the Kwid’s main trump card is its super economical nature, displayed in the 2019 WesBank Fuel Economy Tour where it finished as the second most fuel-efficient petrol driven vehicle.

 

Background and condition of vehicle:

  • Although a 2019 model our Kwid has only clocked up 12 660km of mileage to date and therefore is still as good as new.
  • The bodywork as well as the interior seemed pretty much flawless, while even the tyres seemed as good as new.

 

Performance and Economy:

  • Under the bonnet of the Renault Kwid you will find a small 1-litre 3-cylinder 12-valve engine that produces 50kW and 91Nm of torque.
  • Weighing in at only 741kg the Kwid, despite it’s small engine performs quite reasonably.
  • The Kwid provides enough punch, especially in and around town to easily flow with traffic.
  • Like most small engine entry level vehicles you do however need to keep the engine revolutions up to get the best performance out of it.
  • The 0-100km/h dash takes 13.6-seconds, which compares well with most little entry level vehicles on the market.
  • Renault quotes an impressive 4.7-litres per 100km fuel economy figure, which is very achievable when driven sensibly.

 

How does it drive?

  • One of the best features the Kwid offers is the increased ride height of 18cm.
  • This allows for better bump absorption and a softer ride, thus ensuring the Kwid offers quite a comfortable ride considering its entry level status.
  • The 5-speed manual gearbox and clutch were easy and light to operate and requires little effort from the driver.
  • Like most small engine budget vehicles the 3-cylinder engine can become noisy at times, but good news is, it sounds brilliant.

 

Inside the vehicle:

  • Unfortunately like most budget buys there is a lot of hard plastics throughout the cabin.
  • On the plus side these materials seemed to be durable and tough.
  • The instrument panel is electronic and quite funky in design, although it does not include a rev-counter.
  • An Infotainment system with a touch screen that included Bluetooth phone connectivity and a basic satellite navigation system are features rarely found in entry level vehicles of this nature.
  • Standard features included the following:
  • Air-conditioning - Driver side airbag
  • Central Locking - ABS braking                
  • Front electric windows - USB port
  • Infotainment system - Satellite navigation
  • CD-Player - Power steering
  • Electronic Dash Display - Full size spare wheel
  • Bluetooth phone connectivity - Voice control
  • 12V power socket front and rear

 

Space and Practicality:

  • Despite its tiny frame, four adults can sit comfortably enough without too much of a squeeze.
  • As expected with the front seats fully adjusted to the rear, rear legroom is somewhat limited.
  • The 300-litre boot, similar in size to a Ford Fiesta is impressive.

 

Summary:

  • Extremely well equipped at the price and it’s super economical are most certainly the best attributes of the Kwid, which should ensure that it remains a top seller.
  • As a used car buy our virtually new Kwid offers fantastic value at just R 119 900, especially considering that a new Kwid Dynamique will set you back R 172 900.
  • Exceptionally priced = Good value
  • Super economical
  • Enjoyable to drive
  • Loads of standard kit at the price
  • Increased ride height
