2022 Maruti S-Presso vs Renault Kwid: Specs, price and features comparison
Maruti Suzuki S-Presso has been doing fairly well in the Indian market since it was first launched back in 2019. This is because of the SUV-like design traits, comparatively affordable price point and a relatively feature-packed cabin. But S-Presso continues to face off against another solid contender in the market in the form of Renault Kwid. The hatchback went on sale in India back in 2015 and was given a major facelift in 2019 and then this year, a mild refresh was given. Here is a quick comparison between the S-Presso and the Kwid.

All the prices are ex-showroom. So, the price of the S-Presso's base variant is cheaper by Rs. 39,000. However, the top-end of both the vehicles is priced at the same rate.
