GWERU – With is wide range of high performance cars Duly's is offering a new unique and high performing 1.0 litre Renault Automated Manual Transmission (ATM).
Kwid 1.0 AMT looks just like a regular car, except for a small 'EASY-R' logo at the rear. The AMT is also offered only on the top-end RXT (O) trim, which offers a driver airbag as standard.
Once inside, what you notice immediately is the lack of a gear lever. In its place is a fairly-deep storage space.
The Kwid has a dash-mounted rotary knob, where all other AMTs offer a gear lever to select the driving mode.
It also surprisingly has the inability to manually influence a gearshift, as there is no lever to tip, or paddles to flip, and the knob offers only three choices – forward, reverse or neutral. The AMT tuning then is spot-on.
Coming to the rest of the cabin, the AMT variant is similar to the manual car, which is a good thing, as you get ample room and usable storage spaces like the twin glove boxes and the large 300-litre boot. There is also the unique touchscreen and the digital speedometer unit.
For starters, there is no creep function, which means you don't have to keep your foot on the brake pedal when the car is stationary in neutral, which is convenient. However, a creep function is useful whilst crawling in traffic, when you're parking or starting from an incline.
Of course, the gearshift is not as smooth as in conventional but more expensive automatics, but as AMTs go, this one is quite impressive. There is a slight pause between gear shifts, but it's not that pronounced, and the 'head-nod' so typical of AMTs is very minimal.
Every AMT requires the use of the handbrake on inclines and so does the Kwid. There is some amount of rollback before the car can move forward, but here too, it is far lower than what you experience on most AMT-equipped cars in the market today. The 1.0-litre engine is unchanged, and outputs the same 68hp and 91Nm as in the manual. So there is adequate power for most overtaking moves and highway cruising.
The Renault Kwid comes powered with a new 1.0litre SCE engine that adds more fun to every driver.
So, with what is probably the best AMT in the business, and strengths like cabin space, good feature list and excellent ride, this version of the Kwid is definitely the pick if you're on the lookout for a budget automatic.
