As per updates, the Renault Kiger is expected to be launched in India in the first quarter of 2021. However, the price of the Renault Kiger might vary between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom).
Once launched in India, the Renault Kiger will take on the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Toyota Urban Cruiser, Ford EcoSport and the upcoming Nissan Magnite.
Talking about Renault Kiger’s Indian launch, Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said that the Renault Kiger will be an all-new B-SUV which will stand out as an attractive, smart and exciting offering from Groupe Renault.
He further added that Renault Kiger will exemplify disruptive innovation and will be launched in the B-segment, which accounts for more than 50 per cent of the total industry sales.
The headlights of the Renault Kiger are full-LED units and placed on the bumper. The semi-floating roof and roof rails make the side profile look all the more attractive. The Renault Kiger concept has 19-inch wheels, which we don’t think will be carried over to the production-spec model.
