The Renault Kiger gained a lot of attention in Nepal with the expectation of launching at an amazing price. And, Renault did meet the expectation, as Advanced Automobiles Pvt. Ltd, the authorized distributor of Renault vehicles for Nepal, introduced the Kiger at an amazing price of Rs 28.49 lakh. Leaving behind the newly launched Nissan Magnite, now, the Kiger is the most affordable SUV in Nepal.
Targeted at the young generation, the Kiger shares resemblances with its sister model, the Kwid. However, there are significant details in the Kiger that will differentiate it from the Kwid. So, let’s check out the in-depth details.
Check out the exterior, interior, powertrain, and other details of the Renault Kiger.
The Kiger’s front fascia is muscular and upright. It has a ‘Renault’ badge–prominent and embedded centrally–between sleek DRLs, side indicators, and split LED headlamps. A rather smaller bonnet section means that it’s not hogging the cabin’s space, which is spacious. The SUV’s side-view is enhanced by diamond-cut alloy wheels with chunky-looking cladding, wing mirrors with integrated side indicators, and sporty roof rails with a weight-bearing capacity of 50 kg. The rear gets a spread-out split roof spoiler and C-shaped tail lamps with a cutout edge.
The practical cabin offers multiple storage options: glove box storage (which has two separate compartments), door bins (which easily fits a 1-litre bottle), and massive armrest storage spaces. The dash has a 7-inch digital instrument console, which comes with synchronization capability between its graphic and driving modes (eco, normal, and sport) and an 8-inch floating touchscreen, which is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The central console has a drive-mode selector, in glossy black finish, and placed beside it is the gear lever, surrounded by chrome highlights. The push-button start, USB port, and climate-control knobs with LED display–similar to that in the Nissan Magnite–is set above the central console. The SUV gets an Arkamys sound system and keyless entry, but the wireless charging option is an accessory.
As mentioned before, the Kiger is spacious, and it should not be a problem to fit three occupants on the rear seats with enough legroom and headroom. This particular information might kill the excitement, but yes, the Kiger does not come with a sunroof. The Kiger has a range-topping 405 litres of boot space that can be further extended to 879 litres by folding the rear seat to 40:60. However, the high lip and low boot floor might be a disappointment for individuals travelling with huge luggages. The SUV’s safety features include four airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, traction control, ISOFIX seat-mount points, hill-start assist, and a rear camera with rear parking sensors.
