Exterior Design

In terms of design, Kiger looks like a beefed-up version of its hatchback sibling- Kwid with its winged front grille and Renault logo at centre and split lighting setup. It receives Tri-beam LED projector headlamps placed on the aggressive front bumper and horizontally positioned LED DRLs. At rear, it gets a slightly more raked profile than Magnite which are complemented by C-shaped LED taillights and a faux skid plate.

On its side profile, it flaunts a floating roofline and blacked-out pillars along with 16-inch dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels and roof rails. Other notable exterior highlights include flared wheel arches, a sculpted bonnet, a roof-mounted spoiler and a shark-fin antenna. It is based on the same CMF-A+ platform that also underpins Triber and Magnite.
