  1. Overview: The Renault Kiger, primarily fueled by petrol, comes with both manual and automatic transmission options. Starting at a price of Rs. 6.50 Lakh for the base model, it extends up to Rs. 11.23 Lakh for the top variant. With a seating capacity to comfortably accommodate five occupants, it positions itself as a family-friendly choice in the compact SUV category.
  2. Variants: The 2023 Renault Kiger is available in diverse trim levels – RXE, RXT, RXT(O), and RXZ. Each variant offers a unique blend of features catering to different user preferences and needs.
  3. Market Rivals: Renault Kiger’s entry heats up the competition against noteworthy vehicles like the Nissan Magnite, Hyundai Venue, KIA Sonet, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV300, and Tata Nexon. Each of these vehicles has its strengths, making the segment fiercely competitive.
  4. Cons:
    • Rear Seating: A tight squeeze when three adults occupy the rear.
    • Tall Boot: A higher boot lip makes loading luggage slightly cumbersome.
    • Material Quality: Some quality compromises evident with hard plastics, not quite up to segment standards.
  5. Pros:
    • Emission Standards: BS6 Phase-2 and RDE compliant.
    • Safety: A commendable four-star GNCAP rating for adult occupant protection.
    • Performance: Powertrains deliver lively performance for varied driving conditions.
  6. Specifications: Starting from Rs. 6.50 Lakh, the Renault Kiger offers a mileage ranging between 18.2 to 19.52 kmpl. Its 999 cc engine is not only powerful but has secured a 4-star rating from Global NCAP. Additionally, its 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbo petrol engine boasts 97bhp and a torque of 160Nm at 3,200rpm.
  7. User Reviews:
    • Godwin Fernando: “Transitioning from a hatchback, the RXZ AMT variant offers good space and an attractive stance. However, the engine feels a bit underpowered at 72 ps. Mileage stands at 11-12 in city drives and 18-19 on highways.”
    • Dr. Pradeep Sahay: “A true head-turner with aesthetic appeal. Spacious interiors, smooth performance, and value for money. Even more impressive is the dealer’s cooperation. It seems roomier than the Punch.”
    • Girisha: “Driving the Kiger is a delightful experience. It feels like an upscale car, and I appreciate its design and features. A fantastic option for those on a budget.”

while the Renault Kiger may have its challenges, it undeniably brings a fresh perspective to the compact SUV market. Given its price point, safety ratings, and user reviews, it certainly is a vehicle to watch out for in the times to come.
