KWID Super Hero Edition: An ideal combination of power and design
The 1.0 litre SCe engine which powers the KWID Super Hero Edition is optimally designed for better performance. The four valves per cylinder of the Double Over Head Camshaft (DOHC) layout ensures low pressure drop and super-efficient valve lift for a higher air filling; thus allowing the engine to make usable power at low end, mid-range and high-end rev bands. This high technology engine offers excellent drivability, be it slick city streets or on the highway.
Convenient and Innovative Easy - R AMT with Shift Control Dial
The Easy-R Gear Box is a 5-speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology derived from Renault's rich and successful expertise in Formula 1. It will enable a clutch free driving experience that combines the fuel economy and performance of a manual transmission with the convenience of automated gear shifting. The Innovative Shift Control Dial with three modes Reverse - Neutral - Drive has been smartly designed for ease of use. An advanced control unit automatically optimizes gear shifting in accordance with driving conditions for smooth and regular acceleration to offer a comfortable and stress-free driving experience.
The Easy-R gear box can be operated with an innovative shift control dial that will be positioned below the infotainment system on the centre console. The car will have an advanced throttle control unit that would monitor the throttle input by optimising acceleration and gear shifting. Renault KWID's SUV-inspired design offering a high driving position for greater visibility, state-of-the-art MediaNav multimedia and navigation system and the all new Easy-R Gear Box come together to offer an unmatched easy and stress-free experience for today's congested driving conditions.
