Renault Kiger key highlights: Price, variants, engine options, rivals & more

By autoX Editorial | on February 17, 2021

From engine specifications to pricing and from design to features on offer here's everything you need to know about the all-new Renault Kiger.

After teasing it for months, the all-new Renault Kiger has been finally launched in India. Priced between Rs 5.45 lakh and Rs 9.55 lakh (both ex-showroom), the Kiger is the French carmaker’s first offering in the sub-4m compact SUV space.

While the pricing is impressive, there’s more to the Kiger than a tempting price-tag. Here’s everything you need to know about this new compact-SUV.

Design & dimensions

The Kiger is underpinned by the same CMFA+ platform of the Kwid, Triber, and the Nissan Magnite. Aesthetically, the Kiger has a striking design and resembles that of the Kwid. The front-end is highlighted by split-headlamp design, with all-LED headlights and a large front grille with honeycomb effect. Around the side, the Kiger has flared wheel arches and a sloping roofline – the top-end variant also gets 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. At the back, the Kiger features C-shaped LED tail-lights along with a faux aluminium skid plate. Overall, the Kiger looks quite butch.

In terms of dimensions, the Kiger is 3,991mm long, 1,750mm wide, and 1,600mm tall. It sits on a wheelbase of 2,500mm and has a ground clearance of 205mm.

Interior, features & equipment

The Kiger’s interior looks upmarket and comes with an all-black theme, featuring gloss black and chrome highlights on the centre console and steering wheel. The dashboard is highlighted by an 8.0-inch touchscreen. The cabin has a similar layout as that of the Kwid and Magnite. For instance, the rotary selector for climate controls is identical to that of the Kwid and Magnite, and so are the switches and stalks. The steering wheel is different from the Triber, and it comes with steering mounted controls.

In terms of features, the top-end variants pack wireless Android Auto and Apple Car Play, Arkamys audio system, a digital instrument cluster, push-start button, automatic climate control, rear-view camera, parking sensors, etc. ABS and dual airbags are standard, while the top-end variants get four airbags in total. Wireless phone charger, air purifier, front parking sensors, and more are optional among other add-ons/packs.

Engine & gearbox

The Kiger is offered with the same set of 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engines as the Magnite. This includes a naturally-aspirated (NA) and a turbocharged unit.
