Renault Kiger

Renault India has launched their new Kiger compact SUV. The new Kiger is based on the CMF-A+ platform which is also shared with the Nissan Magnite. The Kiger offers two petrol engines with both, manual and automatic gearbox options. This is the first compact SUV from Renault to go on sale.

Exterior:

    The new Renault Kiger features a familiar design language previously seen on the Kwid. It features a coupe-like design with a muscular stance. The grille and headlights have been significantly upgraded compared to the Kwid though. The grille is larger and gets more Chrome treatment, similar to the Triber and is flanked by LED DRLs which also include the indicators. The actual headlamps are located lower down in the bumper and the top spec variant get Pure Vision LED headlamps. While all variants get 16” wheels as standard, the higher variants get alloy wheels. The rear features C shaped LED tail lamps and a very sculpted tailgate. The higher variants also get silver finished rear skid plate. The sides feature black decals that look like body claddings and even the higher variants don't get Chrome door handles.

Interior:

    The interior of the Kiger gets a traditional, yet stylish layout. The higher Variants get an 8” touchscreen floating at the centre on top of the dash with a high centre console that also includes a large storage compartment under the armrest which can be closed by a Tambour-door sliding lid, as seen on the Tata Nexon. The top Variants get a 7” TFT instrument cluster along with two gloveboxes. The Climate control console, window and mirror controls, starter button, gear lever and the steering wheel are shared with the Nissan Magnite. The door pads are vastly different compared to the Magnite while the glovebox design is identical to the one seen on the Triber.

The Kiger also claims to have segment-besting 405L boot space as standard.

The top spec RXZ Variant will get the following features:

  • LED headlights and DRLs

  • 16” dual tone alloys

  • Functional roof rails

  • Rear wiper & washer

  • Smart key access

  • Push button start

  • Power windows (Auto up/down for driver)

  • Auto fold ORVMs

  • Height adjustable driver seat

  • 8” touchscreen system

  • Steering mounted audio controls

  • Wireless Android auto & Apple carplay

  • Reverse camera

  • Auto climate control

  • Rear AC vents

  • Interior ambient lighting

  • 7” TFT instrument cluster

  • Twin gloveboxes

  • Cooled lower glovebox

  • Front and rear armrests

  • Rear adjustable headrests

  • 60:40 split-folding rear seat

The RXZ variant also gets 3 drive modes as standard including Normal, Economy and Sport modes.

Safety features:

      Standard safety features on the Kiger include:

  • 2 airbags

  • ABS with EBD

  • Pretensioner seatbelt for driver

  • Engine immobilizer

  • Reverse sensors

      The top spec RXZ offers the following safety features:

  • 4 Airbags

  • Smart key access

  • Rear adjustable headrests

  • Rear wiper and washer

  • Reverse camera

While the Nissan Magnite offered ESP, traction control, hill hold assist and brake assist as standard on all turbocharged Variants, none of the Variants of the Kiger offer those safety features.

Variants:

      The Renault Kiger will be available in 4 Variants:

  • RXE

  • RXL

  • RXT

  • RXZ

Powertrains:

       The Kiger will be offered with two petrol engine options. Both 1.0L engines are the same as seen on the Nissan Magnite. The naturally aspirated engine will produce 72PS of Max Power and 96NM of Max torque through a 5 speed Manual gearbox. Unlike the Magnite, the Kiger also offered a 5 speed AMT gearbox with this engine as an option from the RXL Variant onwards.

The turbocharged engine produces 100PS of Max Power and 160NM of Max torque with the manual transmission while the CVT Variants produce 152NM of Max torque. The base RXE Variant is not ava with the turbocharged engine option and only the RXT and RXZ turbo Variants get the option of a CVT.

Launch & price:

        The Renault Kiger is expected to give tough competition to all other compact SUVs while also lasting the success streak of Renault from the launch of the Triber. The Kiger is priced neck-to-neck with the Nissan Magnite, starting from Rs.5.45L (ex-showroom) for the RXE and going up to Rs.9.55L (ex-showroom) for the top spec RXZ Turbo CVT Variant. This pricing makes the RXE Renault Kiger the most affordable compact SUV in the Indian Market today.

    Sanitization and social distancing has become a mandatory process in the automotive industry, thanks to the on-going Covid 19 pandemic. All the cars are to be sanitized before delivery to the customer and the dealership must ensure that no other person gets access to the inside of the car other than the allotted customer. However, Tata Motors have gone a step further in this regard and started delivering its cars and SUVs in a unique plastic bubble known as Safety Bubble which is claimed to shield the car from bacteria and viruses even further.

The i20 has been one among their best selling products and still is one among the most feature loaded hatchbacks in its category. This here is a quick walkthrough on the highlights of the new generation Hyundai i20.

    Exterior: 

           The new Hyundai i20, sports a completely different design language. On the front fascia, it features a new and larger hexagonal cascading grille with a more swooping bonnet and angular headlamps.

    What’s new? Well, some prominent changes are seen on the exterior. In the front, the car features a new chrome grille and and an up- swept bumper profile, LED headlamps, DRL styled indicators and LED fog lamps. On the side, you’ll notice new dual-tone alloy wheels and rear view mirror indicators on the base model. Lastly at the back- the LED tail lamps give it a more modern look. Apart from these changes, not much has been modified in terms of the Brezza’s structure. The updates also don’t include a sunroof that many cars in the same segment offer.

    it comes to the interior of the 2020 Brezza, things are mostly the same. It comes with Maruti’s 7-inch infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, climate control, cruise control, a multi-info display, steering-mounted audio control, as well as keyless entry with push-button start. Safety features include dual airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, and a rear view camera.

    Four variants are on offer in the BS6 Brezza 2020- LXI, VXI, ZXI and ZXI+. We personally think the LXI and VXI are most value for money variants of this car. The new Brezza comes with various colour options - red, orange, silver, white, blue and grey. Dual-tone colours are also offered that include blue/black, grey/orange and red/black.

    While Maruti Suzuki’s Brezza has been a hot seller in the recent past, it could face tough competition from Hyundai Venue, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra XUV300, and the Tata Nexon. Though the Brezza received quite a few updates, we feel the cabin could have been revised to give out a more premium feel as it seems quite outdated compared to the competition mentioned above. Phone connectivity is also something that is missing in the new Brezza, a feature that many other manufacturers are now offering.

    The sub- 4 metre Vitara Brezza has one of its most successful models in the Indian market. With many other players in the sub 4 metre SUV segment, it would be interesting to see how the Petrol Brezza fairs with prices starting from Rs 7.34 lakh and going all the way upto Rs 11.15 lakh (ex-showroom).
