Renault Kiger SUV: All Details Covered In 10 Images

We spent some time with Renault’s debut sub-4 metre SUV to find out if it’s worth the wait


The wraps are off the Kiger, Renault’s debut sub-4 metre SUV made specifically for the Indian market. It’s essentially a Nissan Magnite, but with a different set of clothes. It’s underpinned by Renault-Nissan’s CMF-A+ platform and will be offered with two petrol engines. Renault has loaded it to the gills with features to take on well-established competitors such as the Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue. The Kiger could reach showrooms in February before going on sale in March. Here are all the details you should know in 10 images: 

  • The Kiger’s front-end has presence courtesy Renault’s bold grille. 

  • The split headlamp setup might be reminiscent of the Kwid, but these are all-LED units. 

  • Turn indicators are integrated into the DRLs, which merge onto the grille. 

  • The air dams, which sit below the headlamps, give it an aggressive look.  

  • The swooping A-pillar makes the silhouette look more crossover rather than SUV. 

  • Body cladding and squared-out wheel arches give it a muscular stance, further aided by the 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. 

  • The roof rails are usable and can hold up to 50kg of luggage. 

  • Dual-tone variants get a black colour roof. 

  • The C-shaped tail lamps, which look similar to the Kiger concept, feature LED detailing. 

  • The faux skid plate on the rear bumper lends it a tough look. 

  • The rear parking camera has been smartly placed inside the Renault logo. Looks neat!

  • Renault has done a good job of differentiating the Kiger’s cabin when compared to the Magnite. 

  • The highlight here is the floating infotainment screen that gives the dashboard a modern look. 

  • Even the steering wheels and graphics for the digital instrument cluster are different when compared to the Magnite

  • It’s also a practical offering, with up to 29.1 litres of in-car storage.  

It comes with features such as an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connected car tech, an 8-speaker Arkamys tuned sound system, automatic climate control, drive modes, a digital driver’s display, and keyless entry with push-button start. 

A wireless phone charger and a Philips PM 2.5 AC filter are part of the optional accessory pack. 

Safety is taken care of by four airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors, a parking camera, and electronic stability control.  

  • Renault says the Kiger’s rear seat is one of the most spacious in its segment. Tushar and Ameya have put that claim to test and you can watch it in our walkaround video

  • Rear seat occupants are pampered with a central armrest with cupholders, dedicated rear AC vents, and a 12v charging socket. 

  • The 405-litre boot is one of the largest in the segment. Folding down the rear seats takes the total volume to a whopping 879 litres. 

  • The Kiger is offered with two 1.0-litre petrol engines: a 72PS naturally aspirated unit and a 100PS turbocharged motor. 

  • A 5-speed manual transmission is offered as standard across the range, however, automatic transmissions vary depending on the engine. 

  • The naturally aspirated engine will come with a 5-speed AMT while the turbo-petrol engine will utilise a CVT.  


Though late to the party, the Kiger seems set to take on well-established rivals such as the Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Hyundai Venue, and the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza. What may help it further is competitive pricing. The carmaker could disrupt the segment with an aggressive price tag of Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom), undercutting all its rivals, except for the Magnite.
