sub-4 metre SUV segment in India is on fire. While Nissan is gearing up to sell
its Magnite sub-4 metre SUV in India in the coming days, its partner Renault
has announced its own sub-4 metre SUV model that would be born out of the Kiger
the Kiger show car derived SUV will join the august company of Kwid, Duster and
Triber in India. Renault has been in India since 2005.
from the cooperation between Renault's French and Indian design divisions, the
Kiger derived SUV has an adventurous look. With its DNA it is predestined for
the urban jungle as well as the great outdoors. At first glance, the Kiger show
car stands out with its sculpted bonnet, slender windscreen and a semi-floating
roof with a roof rack. On both sides, the tapered mirrors have been designed
like airplane wings. At the rear, the roof drop is topped by a spoiler, giving
the vehicle a very airy look. The lower section is more muscular and stockier,
resting on four 19-inch wheels framed by large square arches that give strength
to the exterior styling. The 210-mm ground clearance with reinforced lower
flaps and prominent shoulders confirm the escape spirit of the SUV. The sporty side
is accentuated by the dual centrally located exhaust tailpipes and the
honeycomb patterns distributed around the vehicle.
creative association of French and Indian designers was the best way to meet
the needs and expectations of a clientele increasingly fond of style, dynamism
and novelty. As with Triber, we are once again demonstrating our ability to
innovate, by offering a new model with a dual personality, both urban and
outdoor. Kiger Show-car is very close to the future production model,” says Laurens
van den Acker, EVP, Corporate Design of Groupe Renault
developed in India, the green ‘Aurora Borealis’ colour of the Kiger show car,
changes according to the light and the angle from which it is observed. It is
adorned with mysterious blue and purple reflections that make the car as
intriguing as it is seductive. Fluorescent touches highlight certain aluminum
elements such as door handles, bumper inserts, strapping with inlaid
decoration, logo contours and brake calipers.
Kiger show car comes with double-stage LED spotlights, similar to those that appeared
on the New Kwid last year, and green turn signals. At the rear, the double ‘C’
headlights signal Kiger’s place under the Renault brand and form a light
signature that prefigures that of the production model.
is entering a new phase with the Kiger show car. The production model it
prefigures will aim to attract customers looking for novelty and modernity in a
B-segment that represents 51% of the Indian market. Compact enough to fit in
anywhere, and surprisingly spacious to accommodate a whole family, it will make
the city its main playground while being able to cross rural terrain.

growing countries. Thanks to the Duster, Kwid and Triber models, Renault is the
leading European brand in India. Renault Kiger, this compact SUV of less than 4
meters, different from the ones we see on the roads today, will strengthen our
presence and help us to win new customers", says Fabrice Cambolive, SVP,
Chairman of AMI-Pacific Region – Groupe Renault. The vehicle will also be exported to markets
outside of India.
