Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said "The Kwid has proved to be one of the most successful vehicle launches in the Indian automotive industry and it continues to set new benchmarks in the compact hatchback segment. Having seen a highly favourable response to the powerful - Kwid RXT and RXT (O) 1.0 litre SCe and convenient - Kwid RXT (O) AMT, we believe there is a lot of potential in the market for derivatives of these versions. With the introduction of Renault Kwid RXL 1.0 SCe, we aim to make our 1.0 litre offering more accessible to customers, especially across tier II-IV markets, as we focus on consolidating our presence in India."
