Renault has been working on new products for Indian market for quite some time. One of the upcoming product from the manufactirer is the sub-4 meter compact SUV which is likely to be known as Kiger in the market. The Kiger has been spotted testing under heavy camouflage on our roads a couple of times and that has given us a fair idea on how the compact SUV might look like from the front. Here we have a new render image that shows the side profile of the upcoming compact SUV from Renault.
The render image has been shared by srkdesignsin on his Instagram page. The Renault Kiger profile gets an SUVish stance like any other car in the segment. The render image shows a black cladding running around the car and there are also yellow accents at places like under the door, roof rail and also front and rear bumper. The design of the car looks quite similar to Kwid hatchback. The tail light design is different from regular Kwid and is more like unit seen in Datsun Go hatchback. The render also shows a sporty looking alloy wheels on the upcoming Kiger.
Recently Kiger had lost some camouflage and the front of the car was revealed. The design is a combination of both Renault Triber and Kwid hatchback. The grille is similar to Triber with LED DRLs on both the ends.The headlights are positioned on the lower part of the bumper like seen in Kwid. Renault Kiger is based on CMF-A platform which is already being used in cars like Kwid and Triber.
