Renault Kiger launch: Renault set to unveil Kiger, aims to crack B-SUV code | – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Renault is set to unveil its production-ready sub-4-metre SUV, christened Kiger, on Thursday. The company had revealed the concept model by the end of 2020.
Here’s what we know and expect from the Kiger:

  1. Kiger is based on the CMFA+ platform, which underpins the 7-seater Triber.
  2. The company claims the production-spec will carry 80 per cent resemblance with the prototype.
  3. The prototype revealed sleek LED headlamps running across the front fascia, ice-cube shaped triple fog lamp set up, muscular flares around the front-end and a cris-cross pattern on the bumper.


  4. The prototype sat of chunky 19-inch tyres, however, we expect the production-ready to feature 15- and 16-inch wheels.
  5. The prototype also packed a sporty roof rail, which may not be the case in the actual Kiger. Black body cladding runs over the wheel arches and meets the thick rear bumper. The rear packs C-shaped tail lamps, which are split in design.
  6. The company hasn’t spoken a word on the interior. We expect features like an infotainment system, auto climate control and steering-mounted control in Kiger.
  7. Kiger will share engine options with the recently launched Nissan Magnite. A 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol and 1.0-litre turbo-petrol will be in charge. A 5-speed manual or CVT transmission will be offered.


  8. Renault expects healthy volumes out of Kiger, adding more than 40 new sales and service touchpoints across India in December. With this expansion, Renault India has bolstered its network presence to more than 500 sales and 475+ service touchpoints.
  9. Renault Kiger will go up against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Nissan Magnite and Toyota Urban Cruiser.
  10. Renault is set to unveil the Kiger on Thursday and the launch is expected by Q1, 2021. The Kiger is likely to be priced between Rs 6 lakh and 8 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
