The exciting debut of the Renault Kiger compact SUV is slated to happen on 28th January. We were able to get a peep at the façade of the contender-in-waiting through the teaser image. The sub-4m SUV sports LED DRLs and projector headlamps, true to what the concept promised. The ORVMs, roof tails and the unobtrusive front grille lend finesse to the overall sturdy look.
The new compact SUV offering, designed on the CMF-A platform (shared by notables such as the Nissan Magnite), will be largely loyal to the concept that came to light late last year. As such, you may well expect it to sport C-shaped LED tail-lamps, reverse light, alloy wheels, neatly sculpted boots with black cladding. The steep rear windshield and the rear wiper will be as envisaged.
The Renault Kiger will have a more opulent look than the Nissan Magnite. It will have its interior landscape in common with the Triber subcompact MPV. A three-spoke steering wheel with controls, automatic climate control, as well as smartphone connectivity and an 8-inch touch screen infotainment system, are anticipated.
As far as engine options go, the 1-liter turbocharged petrol variant producing 100 bhp of power and a torque of 160 Nm, as well as the 1-litre naturally aspirated engine option, will both be available. The non-turbo petrol motor generates 71 bhp and 96 Nm. Furthering its commonality with the Nissan cousin, the Kiger, endowed with the standard 5-speed gearbox and 6 speed CVT automatic transmission (optional, for the turbo-petrol variant) will be taking on the competition with confidence.
Fanning out into the land from the production-epicenter in Tamilnadu, the new Renault SUV shall be the most affordable of all Renault India SUV offerings. Starting from an ex-showroom price of Rs 5.50 lakhs, we fully expect the Kiger to become a top favorite of Indian customers.
