Renault has finally launched the Kiger crossover in India. The budget car is available in four different variants, namely RxE, RxL, RxT and RxZ. The pricing for the Kiger has been set at Rs 5.45 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi)
The Kiger is based on the CMF-A+ platform, which the car shares with its close cousin, the Nissan Magnite. Key specifications of the car reveal that it is 3,991 mm in length, 1,750 mm in width, 1,600 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 2,500 mm. The car also has a boot space of 405-litres, complete with a fuel tank capable of housing 40 litres of fuel. The ground clearance of the car is a decent 205mm.
Towards the front, the crossover has a V-shaped grille that is typical for modern Renault cars. The face also features LED DRLs and triple pod LED headlamps, located towards the lower half of the bumper.
The fascia is kind of similar to the Kwid, which might be a good thing for a few buyers. The side profile of the car has a coupe-like design, complete with rear haunches that are wider than normal. A roof spoiler and gloss back insert for the C-shaped LED taillights are also part of the car.
Moving to the inside, the Kiger is equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that comes with voice recognition support. The unit is also compatible with Android Auto and Apple’s CarPlay. As for the instrument cluster, there is a 7-inch display. Key features of the car include automatic climate control, a PM 2.5 air filter, hands-free smart access card and a parking camera.
To power the Kiger, Renault has provided the car with a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo-petrol engine capable of producing 99 BHP and 160 Nm. There is another variant, which is a naturally aspirated 1.0-litre petrol motor capable of producing 71 BHP and 96 Nm.
Transmission options consist of a 5-speed manual, 5-speed CVT (Limited to Turbo Petrol) and a 5-speed AMT.
Colour options for the Kiger include Ice Cool White, Planet Grey, Moonlight Grey, Mahogany Brown, Caspian Blue and Radiant Red. Each and every trim-level also gets a two-tone option with Mystery Black Roof.
