Renault Kiger comes with two petrol engine options, one of them being a turbo petrol. Performance-wise, the turbo petrol is a peppy engine to drive and will be a better choice for enthusiasts. The naturally aspirated engine might feel a little lethargic but will get the job done in the city. Kiger also gets three gearbox options which add a sense of flexibility in the line-up.

There are ample interior and connectivity features for the Renault Kiger. A special mention for the wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity feature which is a premium touch inside the cabin. However, it misses out on leather upholstery which would’ve uplifted the ambience of the entire cabin. Potential buyers with a budget constraint can opt for middle variants and the others can afford the top variants as well.

Conclusion

Renault Kiger is a vehicle that sits above the premium hatchbacks but is a notch below the compact SUVs. This means that Renault has been able to create an untapped segment for themselves that does not have many rivals at the moment. The Kiger comes with two petrol engine options one of which is turbo petrol. The naturally aspirated motor is a little underpowered for this vehicle and the alternate powertrain option would perform best. Through this comprehensive analysis, the most value for money variants turn out to be RXT and RXZ. Gearbox options are consumer specific and people can opt from the wide range of gearbox options that Renault has offered with the Kiger.
