Kiger SUV is actually a good looking SUV in this segment. Design of Kiger is actually a combination of Triber and Kwid. The front grille is inspired from Triber whereas the LED DRLs and turn indicators that act as an extension of the grille are similar to what we have seen in Kwid. The headlamps are placed on the bumper and they get a very unique tri-pod design to it. On to the side profile, the blacked out ORVMs, roof with functional roof rails can be seen .Kiger comes with a set of beautiful looking 16 inch alloy wheels that enhance the SUV look of the car.
At the rear, Kiger gets roof mounted split spoiler with high mounted stop lamps in the center. The tail light gets a ‘C’ shape and there is Kiger branding along with Renault logo on the boot. The rear bumper looks muscular on Kiger just like at the front. On the inside, it gets a cabin with touchscreen infotainment screen, multi function steering wheel, digital instrument cluster, rear AC vents, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, wireless phone charger (higher variant) and so on.
