Kiger’s pricing has undercut other compact SUVs in India
Renault has entered the highly competitive and ever growing compact SUV segment with the new Kiger. This new sub 4 meter SUV will not only compete with a host of offerings from major brands in the country, but will also take on its sibling Nissan Magnite.

This 1.0 liter, naturally aspirated, 3 cylinder, petrol engine makes 70 hp power and 96 Nm torque mated to a 5 speed manual or 5 speed AMT. This powertrain also powers the Kwid and Triber. The Kiger will also get its power via a 1.0 liter, 3 cylinder, turbo charged petrol engine offering 97 hp power and 160 Nm torque mated to a 5 speed manual and CVT unit.
