Renault Kiger Becomes More Value For Money
The RXT (O) derivative now packs alloy wheels and an 8.0-inch infotainment system.
The Kiger, along with its Renault stablemates, was recently upgraded to comply with the stricter BS6-II emission norms. The company also took the opportunity to enhance the SUV’s standard safety kit by including Electronic Stability Programme, Hill Start Assist, Traction Control System and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System. The French automaker has now further improved Kiger’s portfolio to make it even more value for money.
In the RXT (O) trim level, the Renault Kiger now comes with 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless smartphone replication and LED-powered headlamps and taillamps. In the same spec, the SUV also packs features such as a smart access card with push-button start/stop, a rear-view camera, a rear wiper with a washer, power-adjustable ORVMs, height-adjustable driver’s seat and rear AC vents. And the least-expensive RXT (O) variant now costs INR 7.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
If, however, you want to settle for the Kiger in its most popular trim level, the RXZ, here’s what you can get:
• Benefits up to INR 10,000 cash
• INR 20,000 off under car exchange
• Corporate benefits up to INR 12,000
• Loyalty benefits up to INR 49,000
The Renault Kiger marches on with a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine and a 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbo-petrol mill. Where the former outputs 71hp/96Nm, the latter produces 99hp/160Nm (152Nm with CVT). Both powerplants come with a 5-speed manual gearbox by default. However, the non-turbo engine is also available with a 5-speed AMT (Automated Manual Transmission). Similarly, the turbocharged unit also offers the comfort of a two-pedal setup with the help of a CVT.
The Kiger is one of the most competitively-priced sub-compact SUVs in India. It rivals everything from the Maruti Suzuki Fronx and Nissan Magnite to Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon and Hyundai Venue.Recommend0 recommendationsPublished in
