Renault India has announced a new warranty offer on the Kwid for 4 years/1,00,000 km (whichever is earlier), along with roadside assistance. The new car warranty programme consists of a 2-year/50,000km standard warranty and a 2-year/50,000 km extended warranty. The company would be looking at easing the ownership experience as well.
The Kwid is currently offered in five variants and two engine options. While the 0.8-litre variant is offered only with a manual transmission, the Kwid 1.0 gets the option of an automated manual transmission (AMT).
Alongside the new warranty programme, the company has also upgraded the Renault Secure programme. The scheme now offers an extended warranty, along with roadside assistance, for up to 5 years or 1,00,000 km (whichever is earlier) on all Renault models.
Direct competitors of the Kwid, like the Datsun Redigo and Maruti Suzuki Alto, offer similar warranty packages. Maruti Suzuki offers a standard warranty of 2 years/40,000km with an option of an extension up to 3 years/1,00,000km (whichever is earlier). The Redigo, on the other hand, comes with a standard 2-year/unlimited kilometre warranty which can be extended to 2 or 3 years/unlimited kilometre along with roadside assistance.
The carmaker has been introducing some aftersales initiatives from time to time such as the Renault Assist, Workshop on Wheels (WoW), Passion on Wheels (PoW), customer apps and customer service camps.

Peter Matthiessen’s The Snow Leopard, his famous book about a spiritual quest to a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas, is 40 years old. His son, Alex, has recreated the trekIs it possible to be an armchair Zen Buddhist? That’s one of the questions that Peter Matthiessen’s great quest The Snow Leopard seems to present. No book I’ve read, certainly among those written in my lifetime, gives a more authentic account of a “journey of the heart” than Matthiessen’s celebrated trek to the Dolpo, the high, ancient Tibetan plateau of the Himalayas. I am not alone in that belief. Since it was first published in 1978, The Snow Leopard has no doubt been the inspiration for more hippy trails and backpacker expeditions to Kathmandu and beyond than any other volume (it is unmovable at the top of Amazon’s “Himalayas” chart). I’ve read the book a few times over the years, though never yet visited the places it describes. Returning to its opening pages now, in a beautiful new Folio Society edition marking both the 40th anniversary of its initial publication and four years since Matthiessen’s death, nevertheless feels like an uncanny invitation to breathe a little more deeply and see a little more clearly.Matthiessen embarked on his journey in the autumn of 1973 at the invitation of the celebrated field biologist George Schaller, (whose photographs of the people and places of that trail we publish for the first time). The purpose of Schaller’s trip was to study the rutting habits of the bharal, the Himalayan blue sheep that inhabits the high plateau and which Schaller hoped to prove was the genetic forebear of all sheep and goats. Matthiessen, who remains the only writer to have won America’s National Book award both for fiction and for nonfiction, was drawn to the expedition for other reasons, however. Continue reading...
