Key details of Renault Kiger's interiors revealed in spy images
French automaker Renault's upcoming compact SUV, the Kiger, will be launched in India sometime around October. In the latest development, spy photos of the vehicle's test module have revealed some key details about its design and interiors. According to the images, the Kiger will feature a grayish-black cabin, automatic climate control, a 'floating' touchscreen infotainment console, and dual gloveboxes. Here's our take.
Renault Kiger: At a glance
The Renault Kiger sub-compact SUV will be based on the company's CMF-A+ (Compact Modular Family) platform, similar to the seven-seater Triber. Going by the spy shots, it will feature a split headlamp unit, V-shaped front grille with a generous amount of chrome treatment, roof rails, and alloy wheels. Moreover, like the Triber, the upcoming Kiger is likely to offer a wheelbase of 2,636mm.
Power and performance
The Renault Kiger will get two BS6-compliant engines: 1.0-liter petrol and a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol unit. The former is expected to offer 72hp of power and come mated to an AMT gearbox, while the latter will belch out 95hp and be paired to a CVT gearbox.
A peek inside the cabin
The upcoming Renault Kiger will get a grayish-black cabin with automatic climate control, dual gloveboxes, and a multifunctional steering wheel with buttons for controlling audio. The car will also feature a 'floating' 8-inch touchscreen infotainment panel with support for the latest connectivity options. For safety, the compact SUV should come with multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.
What about the pricing?
The pricing and availability details of the Kiger will be revealed at the time of launch, which is expected to happen in October. Once unveiled, it will take on the likes of Mahindra XUV300, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, and Ford EcoSport.
