Even though it’s the same engine, we see how the updates affect the Kwid’s efficiency

The facelifted Renault Kwid is powered by the same engine options as the previous model. We had the chance to run the Climber AMT variant through our real-world fuel efficiency tests. This variant is powered by the 1.0-litre petrol engine. Here are the results:

Displacement 999cc, 3-cylinder
Max power 68PS
Peak torque 71Nm
Transmission 5-speed AMT
Claimed fuel efficiency 23 kmpl
Tested fuel efficiency (city) 17.09 kmpl
Tested fuel efficiency (highway) 21.15 kmpl

The Kwid Climber AMT fails to meet its claimed fuel efficiency in both city and highway driving conditions. The ARAI certified figures are achieved in a controlled test environment that is not fully representative of real-world conditions. It does achieve 4kmpl more on the highway than in the city.

50% in city and 50% on highway 25% in city and 75% on highway 75% in city and 25% on highway
18.9kmpl 19.96kmpl 17.95kmpl

The 2019 Kwid Climber AMT delivers similar efficiency across various scenarios averaging between city and highway driving. It is expectedly least efficient in predominantly city conditions delivering just under 18kmpl. The Kwid AMT does one additional kmpl when driven equally in city and highway conditions. Predominantly highway mileage is where the Kwid is able to deliver close to 20kmpl.

Your experience may vary from ours as fuel economy is affected by multiple variables such as driving conditions, the car’s health and your driving style. If you drive a facelifted Renault Kwid Climber AMT, please feel free to share your findings with us in the comments section below.
