Kiger has a very strong personality with its resolutely modern and dynamic design and generous interior space. With equipment and features unheard of at this price level in the segment, and its dual choice of engine and transmission, it has all the cards in hand to appeal to Indian customers looking for originality and novelty.  

Renault Kiger : Design, interior design and technologies 

A sporty and muscular SUV, Kiger is a concentrate of energy with two faces: that of urban modernity and that of agility whatever the road. Its muscular bodywork inspires both robustness and dynamism. A true invitation to escape into the urban jungle and to new driving experiences.  

Measuring just under 4 meters in length, Kiger is classified as an urban SUV. Despite this compactness, it has solid assets in terms of interior space. The interior design philosophy harmoniously combines the robust spirit of an SUV with a sophisticated, technological feel. The clever interior design is based on sharing and friendliness. 

On the technology side, Renault Kiger features a large 8-inch (20.3 cm) touch screen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, with Bluetooth and WIFI connection. The driving experience is enhanced by MULTI-SENSE settings that allow the driver to choose different driving modes, an Auditorium 3D Sound by Arkamys audio system, as well as speed cameras and a rearview camera with guidance lines for easy parking.  

India, one of the most attractive markets in the world 

The second most populous country in the world, India has strong growth potential and remains one of the most attractive markets in the world. As in many other countries, the SUV market has been growing steadily in recent years. Particularly attentive to its customers, their needs and their uses, Renault became aware of this growing demand very early on. The brand has revolutionized certain segments by developing disruptive products such as Kwid and Triber. As one of the only manufacturers to have gained market share last year in a declining market, Renault has established itself as the leader among European brands distributed in India.

« After Duster, Kwid et Triber, we are now releasing Renault Kiger, a modern SUV that is a perfect fit for Indian market. Kiger combines the best Renault has to offer: our expertise in innovative cars with the creativity and in-depth knowledge of customer needs. A new proof that Renault really is a game-changer. ».

« True to the promise of the show-car, Renault Kiger is a robust, dynamic and generous SUV. Armed for travel in the urban jungle we also designed it for escape and confront any type of roads with serenity. Kiger has a SUV coupé look, but its long wheelbase promises great habitability and volume on board. Its “smart cabin” has been specially designed to encourage sharing and conviviality. ».
