Renault Kiger: At a glance
The Renault Kiger will be based on the company's CMF-A+ (Compact Modular Family) platform, featuring a chrome-finished two-slat grille, faux skid plates, shark fin antenna, a rear washer as well as a wiper. For lighting, it will house split headlamps with boomerang-shaped LED DRLs, and LED taillights. On the sides, the SUV will be flanked by body-colored ORVMs, wheel cladding, and sporty alloy wheels.
Power and performance
The Kiger will be offered in two BS6-compliant engine options: a 1.0-liter petrol motor that makes 72hp of power, and a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol unit that generates 95hp. Both the mills will come with a 5-speed manual or an automatic transmission.
A peek inside the cabin
The upcoming Renault Kiger will sport a dual-tone cabin with automatic climate control, angular AC vents, cruise control, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It will also have a digital instrument cluster and a floating 8.0-inch infotainment panel with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For the safety of passengers, the car should offer multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.
What about the price?
At present, there is no official information on the launch and pricing of the Renault Kiger. However, we expect it to be priced at around Rs. 9 lakh. Once launched, the SUV will offer competition to the Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, and Kia Sonet.
