The new RXT(O) variant gets features like full-LED headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels, an air filter with PM2.5 filter and a wireless smartphone charger. These features were only available with the top-end RXZ trim till now. The infotainment system also gets wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ambient lighting, Arkamys sound system, drive modes and a few other features.
The exterior changes also make the RXT (O) look very similar to the RXZ. This will also attract a lot of buyers since the full-LED headlamps do look extremely good on the Kiger.

There is a more powerful 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine too that produces a maximum power of 100 PS and peak torque of 160 Nm.
