Well, which competed Maruti’s hatchbacks truly was the Renault Kwid; it was launched in around September 2015 and was only available in 0.8L engine variant. Initially, it suffered a lot of failures with its AC (that was bit sparking and was not that compatible with the 0.8L motor), performance, fuel injection pump etc. But later on everything was fixed right some of the changes were made by calling the pre owned customers like the fuel injection pump that was not efficient as such.

Above all the disadvantages Renault Kwid is the most spacious, tech equipped vehicle in the segment and also in the budget as well. And in my opinion if you are thinking to buy it just go with the 1.0L unit as it has more power within it!
