Renault’s first subcompact SUV Kiger was spotted testing outside Chennai. Initially, the new subcompact SUV from the french brand was supposed to make its official debut at the Auto Expo 2020 but was then postponed to a later date for reasons unknown. The Kiger sub-compact SUV will be Renault’s second India specific product.
Renault Kiger | Engine Specification
- The new subcompact SUV will be sitting on the CMF-A+ platform of Renault Triber. Thus we can expect it to get the 1.0-litre engine from the Triber which produces 71.05hp of power and 96Nm of torque. In the nearing future, Renault Kiger can get a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine option as well.
Renault Kiger | Features
- The upcoming Kiger SUV will be getting a sunroof, first time in any Renault car. We can expect the upcoming SUV to share its interiors with the Triber compact MPV which includes automatic climate control, steering-mounted audio controls, touchscreen infotainment system, reverse parking camera, projector headlamps and much more on the Inside. Being so feature-packed, Renault HBC will surely be able to attract a lot of customers.
- On the Outside, the Kiger will also support massive 16-inch alloy- wheels In the styling segment, the test car has a typical crossover-like shape. In fact, the front doors and a few body panels like the front bumper, grille and even the hood seems to have been copied from the Renault Triber!
Renault Kiger | Price and Rivals
The Kiger will have to compete with a lot of heat in this segment from the best-seller Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon, upcoming Kia Sonet and Hyundai Venue. We can expect the compact SUV to cost around ₹9 lakhs. Will it be able to fair against its rivals? We’ll get to know after the launch.
