2021 Renault Kiger was launched earlier this week at a starting price of Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom). At this price, the Kiger is currently the most affordable vehicle in the segment of subcompact SUVs in India. The new SUV comes in four variants, namely, RXE, RXL, RXT, and RXZ. There are two engine options available on the Renault Kiger. Besides, Renault also offers a wide variety of accessories for the Kiger. In the following part, we will go through five accessory packages offered for the Renault Kiger, including Attractive, Essential, SUV, Smart, and Smart+.
As the name suggests, this Attractive accessory package is targeted to make the Kiger appear more alluring. This accessory package offers some chrome accessories for the exterior of the Kiger. However, the strong use of chrome elements might not to everyone's liking. Check out the full list of Attractive pack accessories below:

Similar to the Attractive package, this package option also serves the purpose of styling enhancement.

This accessory package includes some SUV-ish features which are not available on the stock version, including:
Front skid plates
Side body cladding
Rear boot lid cladding
The Smart package is intended to leverage increased comfort and convenience of the car by providing some useful features including:

At launch, Renault Kiger is priced from Rs 5.45 lakh (ex-showroom)
In the stock form, the Renault Kiger is already a good-looking car with many bold and prominent styling elements, for example, the vertically-split LED headlights, winged front grille, accentuated rear haunches, strong flared wheel arches, heavily-sculptured bonnet, heavy body cladding, and more. In addition, Renault also offers various colour options for the customers to choose from, including, Ice Cool White, Planet Grey, Moonlight Grey, Mahogany Brown, Caspian Blue and Radiant Red with Mystery Black Roof.
Under the hood, the Renault Kiger sources power from either a 1.0-litre naturally-aspirated three-cylinder engine or a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine. The NA petrol engine is capable of making 72 Bhp and 96 Nm while the latter is good for 100 Bhp and 160Nm. The transmission duty for the 1.0-litre NA petrol engine is done by either a 5-speed manual gearbox or an AMT gearbox. The turbocharged engine, on the other hand, is mated to either a 5-speed or a CVT. Renault Kiger takes on the likes of Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Vitara Brezza, and Ford Ecosport.
