Renault unveiled their upcoming compact SUV Kiger a few weeks ago. It is a sub-4 meter compact SUV that competes with cars like Maruti Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport and recently launched Nissan Magnite in the segment. When launched, Renault Kiger is going to be the most affordable sub-4 meter SUV in the segment. Renault has already started the mass production of Kiger and it has already started reaching dealerships. Renault will be officially launching the Kiger SUV in the market on 15th of February 2021. Before launch, Renault has now released a new TVC that shows how the cabin of the upcoming SUV looks like and what all features does it offer.

The interior of Kiger is actually similar to the Triber MPV that Renault has. It gets an all-black cabin with a silver finished strip running horizontally across the dashboard. On the dashboard the main attraction is the floating style touchscreen infotainment screen which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. On the right hand side is the three spoke steering wheel with all the controls for the instrument cluster and the infotainment screen mounted on it.
The instrument cluster is a fully digital unit that shows multiple information. On the center console there is a small place to put your phone.

The turn indicator is also integrated under the DRL. The bumper look muscular and this gives it an SUV like look. The headlamps are different and get ice cube shape design to it. There is thick cladding all around the car to give it that rugged SUV type look.
