Maruti Alto has remained one of the highest selling cars in the Indian car market for the last two decades now.

To challenge the supremacy of Maruti Alto in the entry-level car category, Renault launched the very capable and promising Kwid.

In its latest iteration, the Kwid gets daytime running LEDs, a rear armrest and a rear camera as additional features. There are two engine options – 0.8-litre petrol, which makes 54 PS of power and 72 Nm of torque and 1.0-litre petrol, which produces 68 PS of power and 91 Nm of torque.

Datsun Redi-GO is a distant cousin of the Renault Kwid, as both of them share the same platform and engine options. However, the Redi-GO gets a completely different design in and out, with the overall look being that of a tall-boy hatchback with a rounded design language. The facelifted version of the Datsun Redi-GO got contemporary features like a touchscreen infotainment system and LED daytime running lights and fog lamps. The engine options, 0.8-litre petrol and 1.0-litre petrol have been shared with the Kwid in the same state of tune.

However, with the facelift, Datsun tried to make the Go look and feel more appealing, with new-age features like a touchscreen infotainment system and rear power windows. The Datsun Go sources its power from a 1.2-litre petrol engine, which pumps out 68 PS of maximum power and 104 Nm of torque. It is the most affordable car in India to get a CVT gearbox as an option.
