    Shares Platform with Nissan Magnite

    The upcoming Renault Kiger will be sharing the platform with Nissan Magnite. Both the cars will feature CMF-A+ platform jointly developed by Renault-Nissan duo. We are not alien to this platform as it already underpins the Renault Triber. With the Renault badge, expect the Kiger (or repackaged Triber) to become a more premium offering. Remember the difference between Nissan Sunny – Renault Scala and Nissan Micra – Renault Pulse.

    Only Petrol Lineup

    Based on the same platform, the Kiger will use the same 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine of the Triber. It will produce max power of 95hp and will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Expect a CVT transmission as well with the Kiger. It will be a petrol-only offering, just like its stablemate.

    Exciting Feature List

    The upcoming Renault Kiger would be in one of the most demanding auto markets of the world. It is expected to be loaded to the brim with features such as large touchscreen infotainment system, auto AC, steering mounted controls, push start/stop, leatherette upholstery, built-in navigation system and others.

    Competitors

    The upcoming subcompact SUV Renault Kiger would be locking horns with the Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Mahindra XUV 300 and Ford EcoSport. And in coming months, it will have more rivals in the name of Toyota Urban Cruiser and Nissan Magnite.
