Renault Kwid Climber AMT long term update

Our long-term Renault Kwid Climber AMT sure seems to be quite pocket-friendly

I had been longing to undertake a road trip in the Renault Kwid Climber and finally got an opportunity to do so by clubbing a few holidays with a weekend. I had been planning to take my family to Hampi, a city steeped in history. The 600-kilometre-long drive from Pune to that region in Karnataka is breathtakingly beautiful. Since the drive was almost entirely on highways, the peppy 1.0-litre petrol along with the AMT gearbox was a boon. Being a small hatchback, I was really amazed at its efficiency. Even with the a-c full on and four people on board, the Climber returned an impressive 20 km/l (approx) on those roads.
The other attribute of this car that prompted this long drive is its large boot space, which comfortably accommodated luggage for the entire week.
On the return journey, we decided to make a slight detour and take the coastal route in order to stop by at my native village in Goa. This turned out to be a nightmare because the road surface was extremely poor, the national highway being expanded to six lanes. Thankfully, the well-sprung Kwid ensured a comfortable drive and kept my family in good humour. The frugal hatchback returned around 15-16 km/l in such adverse conditions. At the end of this 1,300-km trip, we got around 18 km/l on average, which makes the Renault Kwid Climber very pocket-friendly.
