Renault has given an update to many of their favorite Kigar sub-four-meter compact SUVs. It is now priced at Rs 5.84 lakh (ex-showroom), which translates to an increase of about Rs 5,000 over the previous iteration. The biggest change comes in terms of features, the updated Kiger now boasts a wireless charger and climate control. From a design standpoint, there is now a new front skid plate finished in silver with a chrome strip just above the rear bumper.
The 16-inch alloy wheels now come with a red accent, and the French automaker has added a ‘Metal Mustard with Mystery Black Roof’ (dual-tone) color option, similar to the Tribe. While that’s not all, the SUV also gets ‘turbo’ discs on the door, in the turbo-petrol variant. Inside, the 2022 Kigar gets the PM2.5 air filter standard across all variants. The dashboard also features red contrast stitching with red accents and new quilted seat upholstery.
The recently launched RXT (O) variant, which only comes with a non-turbo engine, is now available with the turbo-petrol variant (MT & CVT). Except for these changes, Kigar remains pretty much the same as before. It still boasts a four-star global NCAP crash test rating. Powertrain options are the same as before with the 1.0-liter, three-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces 71bhp and 96Nm of power; And combined with a five-speed manual or five-speed AMT gearbox.
On the other hand produces 1.0-liter, three-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine, 99bhp and 160Nm of torque; And combined with a five-speed manual or CVT gearbox. The reason for this update of Kiger for Renault is that Maruti Suzuki Brezza and Toyota Urban Cruiser are going to get a big facelift soon. In addition to these two sub-four-meter SUVs, Kigar competes with Tata Nexon, Nissan Magnite and Mahindra XUV300.
