Finally! After all these months, Renault is all set to launch the AMT version of the Kwid in the second week of November. The Kwid AMT will borrow the AMT from the Duster and will have a rotary gear selector. The transmission system will have Reverse, Neutral and Drive modes. It might also get a crawl function, which will help the car move ahead without any throttle inputs. This function will be a big help on traffic laden roads. There will be no option to manually change the gears in the AMT variant.
The transmission will be paired to the all-new new 999 cc, three cylinder SCe engine, which produces 67bhp and 91 Nm.The Kwid AMT might only be available in the top-end variant which will boast of other features like a 7-inch MEDIANAV touchscreen display, front power windows and many more. When launched the Kwid AMT will go up against the likes of the Alto K10 Auto Gear Shift. The pricing will be key, but knowing Renault, it will nail it likely.
