Renault first launched the kwid which was popular & that concept makes many fans, the Kiger
looks like a kwid but looking, heavy bodybuilders.
From the front, it looks aggressive. the lines & creases make it look huge. a car with stability.

DESIGN AND STYLING
I like the cloak decks, it has DRLs, turns indicators under them & the
normal headlights which are making him very premium.it looks like the glaze-shaped
headlamps. From the back, it has sporty spoilers that look just aggressive like the front & which
makes him a big car. the tail lamps at the back, which is the signature Renault style.
What is very impressive about the Kiger is that it comes in 24 different variants.
Kiger footing model ex-showroom price is about Rs 5.55 Lakh, which is the lowest
compact SUVs in the SUV category.
And the top model is almost double the price, which is 10-10.5Lakh rs ex-showroom.
The on-road price of the top models is about Rs 11.50 lakh, so the Kiger concerns all kinds of
audiences, from budget category to top end.

kiger best on every road condition. And this is made always Indian people comfortable

all good there, and there’s a shark fin antenna at the back.
There is a parking sensor at the center back and there’s a parking camera inside the
Renault logo and displays in the infotainment. Nice composition overall.
The top model comes as the CVT variant.
405 litter of boot space which occurs enough space and the inbuilt hooks will help you
hang carry bags so that it doesn’t spill. small and good stuff. there is a Stepney below too.
There’s a lot of height and space for a compact SUV, manually you can adjust the
seat heights, even at its height, you got more space for headroom
The plastic used inside is all black, looks good, and looks economical, not premium, but it is of
personality. this kiger key is very special. it acts as a remote with lock/unlock and bonnet
buttons. and the key performs uniquely.
Its steering is so lights and moves freely even when the car is inactive.
The steering wheel is adjustable, so you can move it and adjust it the way you want.
The display shows the fuel gauge and even the temperature outside.
The digital instrument cluster is very well laid out. you get to see the speedometer, odometer,
and even the modes that change with animation.
There are 3 modes (sports, economy, and normal)which change colors (red, green, and
blue)according to the mode. you also get to see the total kilometers, fuel economy, neutral drive,

the 7″ instrument cluster, you get an 8″ infotainment system. and it has a wireless Android auto
You can connect to it wirelessly, it has apple car play, auto android auto, and now I am
wirelessly connected to it via phone and you get all android auto features.
And it has a Fast and Furious responsive screen. I like the infotainment system and the
instrument cluster. they are so impressive.

volume control, mode switch, voice calls. you get all the useful buttons on the steering wheel
itself. storage compartment and other controls.it has 3 modes where you can get more power
and torque. the gear knob has reversed at the top, then you have neutral and drive and to
switch it to the manual, you will have to move it to the left side.it is simple and easy.

If you look at the storage, you get bottle holders at the side but at the center, you get a lot of
space near/under the hand rest to keep cups, keys, etc. top variant has wireless charging. and
you also got some more storage compartments for phones, wallets, etc. there have two glove

windows, and lock/unlock, and the buttons are very well placed.
I like the dashboard button quality, they look good. and this car looks modern from the inside
and outside also.
You get climate control too to set the temperature manually.
The car engine starts/stop button could have been as pr tradition .below the steering
wheel, but you will have to get used to it. and another thing, you get 1usb port, this is an Extra
addition that we have installed, and here you get a cigarette lighter and a USB charging point.
Seating structure at the backside of the car. there is very good leg space and that’s
surprising. the driver’s seat was adjusted based on my driving position. I drive the brezza and
there isn’t much legroom in its back cabin, the Renault Kiger has extra space in comparison.
While sitting and talking about the under-thigh support, it could have been better, but It still has
enough height, so the Renault Kiger is reasonably good at this. you can use the armrest at the
back if only 2 people are sitting that have cut and mobile holders and that’s a nice touch.2
people can sit comfortably, I don’t think there’s enough space for a 3rd person. but for 2 people,
there’s more than enough space for sure. there are Ac vents for the people at the back as well,
and here you get a cigarette lighter and with this accessory, you can have USB charging at the
You get 4 tweeters and 4 speakers, you get the Arkamys 3d sound system
and the bass quality of the speakers is too good.it is inbuilt with the car.
It has 4 airbags with ABS and EBD, on the front wheel you get discs and
the rear wheel has drum brakes, I think this is too much good.
present invention many cars have sunroof at a low price, but the Kiger isn’t one of
them.if you look at the venue and xuv300 you would get one but not in this car.
There is the AMT variant and the CVT and also the 1.0 L turbo engine, which is the
top variant. while driving the turbo variant you will feel it when you’re driving the highway. There
have a 999 cc engine and produce 98.63 bhp at 5000 RPM
About talking milage company claims 24 kmpl. but at the highway, you find more.
From my side, in this budget, Renault made an impressive car. price is under
Safety 4-star ratings.
Overall this car action best in the segment.
