Renault Kwid Imagined As Dacia Kwid, Low-Cost Aura Instantly Surrounds the Car

In case you are confused, we are not doubling our piece of news on the Renault Kwid, but some automotive designers move very quick and come up with their own impressions of new models.

Theophilus Chin came up with a rendering showing the Renault Kwid as a Dacia Kwid, an interpretation that is very close to what we might see on the road in the future from Renault's low-cost brand.

Renault will most likely offer the Kwid under the Dacia moniker in Europe, which is a bit contradicting since the details published by the French carmaker suggest the Kwid is smaller than the Duster. Remember Dacia is also offering the Sandero Stepway in Europe, so it will be interesting to see how the Kwid fits in.

In true Dacia spirit, the 'automotive manipulator' fitted his rendering with wheel caps instead of aluminum rims and a new grille with a cheaper flavor about it. Also, the exterior paint is not that enthusiastic as Renault saw fit to use on the Kwid.

The undersigned has one theory, though. In British slang, 'a quid' stands for 'one pound' (£1 in currency), so try spelling Kwid a few times and see where does that take you. Is does enhance the low-cost aura around the car, don't you think? Moreover, the British presence in India has historical ramifications, so baptizing the car Kwid does a lot of marketing work for Renault.

Renault will manufacture the Kwid crossover in India, but they also see the vehicle as an affordable car designed for international markets, which means Europe might get it, the UK included, although nothing official is out of the pipe in this regard.
