The upcoming Renault Kiger is expected to hit the Indian market by the end of this year. The all-new compact SUV will be based on the company’s CMF-A+ platform.
Renault Triber and Kwid are quite successful in the Indian market and are doing quite well in terms of overall sales. The carmaker has now planned to expand its vehicle line-up and is all set to launch an all-new compact SUV by the upcoming festive season named as Kiger. The sub-4-meter SUV has been spied several times while getting tested on the Indian roads unveiling some hidden details within the camouflage. Nevertheless, this is the very first time that the front fascia of the compact SUV has been spied on camera with mild disguise. It reveals the presence of a spilt headlight cluster. The headlamp design looks more premium compared to the one offered with the Kwid facelift.
The all-new Renault SUV will be priced between Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 9 lakh
Moreover, it also features dual horizontal silver slats grille with Renault badging in the middle. The headlamp housing features triple beams, which looks identical to the design seen on the global models. Moreover, the V-shaped grille is complemented by sleek LED DRLs. The test car also features multi-spoke alloy wheels indicating that it is the top-spec trim of the car. The all-new Renault SUV will be based on the company’s CMF-A+ platform, the same platform also underpins the ongoing Triber. Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Hyundai Venue, Maruti Brezza, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport and upcoming Kia Sonet. The new sub-4-meter SUV is expected to be priced between Rs 5.5 lakh to Rs 9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The compact SUV will be propelled by a 1.0-litre three-pot gasoline engine in naturally-aspirated and turbocharged guises. The turbo-petrol mill will produce 95 bhp of peak power and is expected to come paired with an MT or a CVT. The N/A trim will be offered with 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT gearbox options. Inside, the all-new Renault Kiger will come loaded with features like a fully digital instrument console, engine start/stop button, multi-function steering wheel with mounted controls, automatic climate control and a large 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with latest connectivity options.
