Renault India has also started dispatching the Kiger to its dealerships across the country.

Renault India has started the mass production of the upcoming sub-4metre compact SUV, the Kiger, at its manufacturing facility located in Oragadam, Chennai. While the Renault Kiger made its global debut last month, we are expecting it to be launched in India this month. The Kiger will be first introduced in India followed by other global markets.

The automobile manufacturer has also started dispatching the Kiger to its dealerships across the country. Renault India now boasts of more than 500 sales and over 475 service touchpoints.

The Renault Kiger is equipped with features like a twin-slat chrome grille, tri-LED headlights, LED DRLs doubling up as indicators, functional roof rails, shark fin antenna, rear spoiler, C-shaped taillights, aluminium-finish skid plates and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.

The cabin gets some contemporary creature comforts like an 8-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 7-inch digital instrument panel, automatic climate control, wireless phone charger, hands-free smart access card, PM2.5 air filter, Arkamys 3D sound system with eight speakers and ambient lighting.

Among the powertrain options in the Kiger are 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol (100PS and 160Nm) and 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol (72PS and 96Nm). The turbo-petrol engine has 5-speed MT and 5-speed X-Tronic CVT options, while the NA petrol mill has 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT options. There are three different drive modes -- Eco, Normal and Sport.

Based on the CMFA+ platform, the Renault Kiger has impressed us with its dimensions. It gets a high ground clearance (205mm), the best-in-segment distance between front seats (710mm), and segment-leading second-row legroom (222mm) and elbow room (1,431mm). The sub-4metre compact SUV's boot can hold 405 litres of cargo.

We are expecting the Renault Kiger price in India to be in the range of Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom). It will lock horns with the Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon and Nissan Magnite.
