French car manufacturer Renault launched their first ever sub-4 meter compact SUV, Kiger in the market earlier this year. Sub-4 meter compact SUV segment is quite popular in the country and Kiger is the latest entrant in this segment. It competes with cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, Ford EcoSport and Nissan Magnite in the segment. Kiger has received an overwhelming response from the customers. Renault has now launched a new TVC for the Kiger compact SUV showing all the features that it offers.
The video has been uploaded by Renault India on their official YouTube channel. The video shows a couple working from home, probably because of the ongoing pandemic. One of the person then talks about his meeting that got cancelled and the couple finally gets a break from the digital world. They plan to get out on their new car which is the all-new Renault Kiger.
The video shows the exterior design of the Renault Kiger and also shows a glimpse of the features that it offers on the inside. On the outside, Kiger gets a design that is actually inspired from Renault Kwid and Triber. The front grille is similar to what we have seen in Triber and the LED DRLs which actually look like an extension of the grille look like the one seen in Kwid. The headlights are placed on the bumper and it gets an ice cube shape design to it. The front of the Kiger looks muscular from all the angles and has that SUV look to it.
Moving to the side profile, Kiger gets 16 inch sporty looking alloy wheels with thick cladding around the wheel arches. There are roof rails which are actually functional and the SUV also comes with a roof mounted split spoiler. The rear profile of the Renault Kiger reveals a muscular design with C-shaped tail lights and Kiger branding on the boot. The lower part of the bumper is black with reflectors and a faux skid plate on it.
On the inside, Renault Kiger gets a simple looking cabin with features like a touchscreen infotainment screen that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay wirelessly. It gets a multi function steering wheel, automatic climate control, rear AC vents, fully digital instrument cluster and so on. It even comes with drive modes which can be selected using the rotary knob on the center console. It may not be the most feature equipped SUV in this segment but, it does offer a decent number of features.
Coming to engine and gearbox option, Renault is offering Kiger with two petrol engines only. These are the same engines that are already available with Nissan Magnite. There is a 1.0 litre, three cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates 72 Ps and 96 Nm of torque. This engine is available with manual and a 5-speed AMT gearbox. The next engine is a 1.0 litre turbocharged, three-cylinderpetrol engine that generates 100 Ps and 160 Nm of peak torque. This engine option is available with manual and CVT gearbox option.
