Renault’s subsidiary brand Dacia has recently revealed the concept form of its upcoming 7-seater SUV named as Bigster through official pictures. The new concept's pictures show the company’s upcoming flagship SUV, which will sit above the Duster in automaker's stable. The SUV will be based on the company’s CMF-B platform. The all-new Dacia Bigster SUV will be among three Dacia vehicles, which the carmaker has planned to introduce in the European market. Right now, there is no confirmation on its India launch. The automaker says that the Bigster SUV is the company’s “way of making the C-segment accessible, delivering a larger, more capable vehicle at the cost buyers would expect from the segment below”.
The concept model of the car gets unique looking Y-shaped LED headlamps, muscular wheel arches, flat roofline and pronounced haunches. It gets protective outside panels, which are made from raw recycled plastics. The new SUV concept also revealed the company’s new brand logo. The cabin details of the all-new Dacia Bigster are still under the covers. It is expected to be offered in 5-seater and 7-seater configurations. Moreover, one can expect the SUV to be offered with both alternative-energy as well as hybrid power plant options. Talking about the company’s future plans, Renault is all set to reveal the production version of its upcoming sub-4-meter SUV named Kiger on 28th January.
Once launched, it will compete with the likes of Maruti Vitara Brezza, Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon and Ford EcoSport. It will be based on Renault’s CMF-A+ platform. This is the same platform which underpins Renault Triber. Mechanically, the all-new Renault Kiger will get propelled by a 1.0-litre NA petrol and 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol mill. The former will develop 72 Bhp of max power and 96 Nm of peak torque, while the latter is capable of shredding out power and torque outputs of 99 Bhp and 160 Nm, respectively. In terms of features, Renault Kiger is likely to be more loaded than Nissan Magnite. It is expected to launch in the Indian market in the coming months.
