PT Maxindo Renault Indonesia (MRI), the distributor of the Renault brand in Indonesia, finally offers a new product for Indonesian consumers interested in the Renault Kwid. The Renault Kwid Climber complements the range of Kwid variants, which previously came only with a manual transmission.
However, to provide driving convenience, PT MRI has introduced the Renault Kwid Mountaineer, which features an automatic transmission system. It not only offers an automatic transmission system but also has some features which can also pamper the consumer while driving.
The Renault Kwid Climber is priced at IDR 159 million. The price is still reasonable for Indonesian consumers who want a car that looks different but can be obtained at an affordable price.
For consumers who want something different, this car offers a more attractive design than competitors such as the Suzuki Ignis. A thicker, more adventurous look, with some exterior accessories, complements the DNA adventure of this French alert car.
Well, for the size of the Renault Kwid Mountaineer, this car has a compact design and an aggressive profile. Renault has equipped this car with a length of 3,731 mm, a width of 1,579 mm, and a height of 1,474 mm. Not only that, but the Renault Kwid Climber is equipped with a height of 184 mm, thus providing the ground clearance required for an SUV-style hatchback in terms of driving performance.
In addition to its attractive shape, the Renault Kwid Climber comes with an eye-catching blend of colors. The combination of blue and orange are the hero colors that make this car more recognizable for its contrast. However, the two shades of color also add an aura of dynamism to this car.
Renault offers not only one color but also four other color options for the Climber, such as Moonlight Silver, Outback Bronze, Fire Red, and Ice Cold White.
The wheels have also become sportier. The use of black and sporty graphics marks this out and boosts the owner’s confidence when going anywhere with this Renault Kvyd Mountaineer.
In the field of pacemakers, Renault Kwid Climber is equipped with a compact engine. In terms of specifications, the car comes with a 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine configuration that is capable of producing 68 PS at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of peak torque at 4,250 rpm. The power surge at the initial revs makes the car responsive. Naturally, this is due to the nature of the engine used, which is indeed capable of delivering bursts of power at low to medium rpm.
Renault has not only built an adventure tour for the mountaineer. On the inside, Renault has equipped the car with several features that the owner can rely on when traveling. One aspect that can be highlighted is the complete entertainment function that usually eases fatigue while driving.
The already fixed host can be used not only as a sweetener. However, due to its excellent functionality, it can be said that it has countless capabilities. Most interestingly, through this host, the car is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Voice command is another very important feature, which is very limited in this segment and is not shared by its competitors.
With a price of Rp. 150 million, this does not mean that the Renault Kwid Mountaineer knows nothing about safety features. As a factory default setting, this model comes with a range of safety features such as side airbags for drivers, ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), seat belt reminder, and reverse radar. In addition, the Kwid Climber is equipped with a rear camera, which allows owners to park their vehicles more easily.
Moreover, when it comes to the luggage capacity on the back, the Renault Kwid Climber has an advantage for potential customers who travel a lot. The reason for this is that the car can hold up to 300 liters of cargo. In this case, that capacity is better than its closest competitor, which offers only 260 liters.
With this capacity, the owner can lift at least several large suitcases that can be placed in the back without affecting the comfort of the second row of passengers. In this section, Renault has also added a partition, thus protecting the privacy of your belongings.
Another comfort is also shown through the armrest placed in the second row. With this feature, rear passengers will also feel comfortable while riding in the car. Of course, the Climber is embedded with more features and is more comfortable compared to the manual Renault Kwid.
