Renault Kwid vs Maruti Suzuki S-Presso vs Maruti Suzuki Alto K10: Comparison Price Specification

Renault Kwid vs Maruti Suzuki S-Presso vs Maruti Suzuki Alto K10: Comparison Price Specification :- Renault India has been quite prompt in launching the 2019 Renault Kwid facelift just a day after Maruti Suzuki launched its key competitor- the S-Presso. The Renault Kwid is available with two engine options in the market – a 0.8-litre motor and a 1.0-litre motor where the latter can be had only in the top-spec RXT and Climber variants. On the other hand, the S-Presso gets the Alto K10 sourced 1.0-litre engine as standard across variants as standard. Therefore, the ideal comparison has to be between the top two variants of the Kwid against the top two variants of the S-Presso- VXI, and VXI+.
