Renault will reportedly increase the prices of its KIGER SUV in India from April 1. The price-hike will be applicable to all the deliveries from April 1, irrespective of their booking date.

For lighting, it houses sleek LED headlights, LED DRLs, fog lamps, and C-shaped LED taillights.
On the sides, the car is flanked by roof rails, indicator-mounted ORVMs, blacked-out B-pillars, and 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels.
Fact: The SUV is available with two engine options
The Renault KIGER is offered with two BS6-compliant engine choices: a 1.0-liter petrol motor that makes 70hp/96Nm and a 1.0-liter turbo-petrol mill that generates 97hp/160Nm. Transmission duties are taken care of by a 5-speed manual, an AMT, and a CVT gearbox.
Interiors: Four airbags ensure safety of the passengers
The Renault KIGER offers a spacious 5-seater cabin with a dual-tone dashboard, ambient lighting, ventilated seats, power windows, an adjustable steering wheel, and automatic climate control.
