The Renault Kiger is the French alternative to the Nissan Magnite. It plays on the same strengths too - economic price tag and a kit brimming with features - but adds a Duster inspired macho style to the mix. So how does it all come together? Watch the review to find out!

    The only shortfall is the engine which should have been the 1.2 litre turbo which the Renault/Nissan group already have in their portfolio. It then would have been perfect for Bharath. The engine I am referring to is TCe130 – 132 PS (97 KW; 130 HP) at 5,500 rpm and 205 Nm (20.9 kg·m; 151.3 ft·lb) at 2,000 rpm or also called the Nissan HRA2DDT (1.2 DIG-T). Lack of this bigger engine makes for turbo lag being pronounced till 1600 rpm.

    Just an observation - If you are going to use the phrase “at this price point” many times in your review, please mention the price upfront in the video and not at the very end. Clearly the biggest USP of the car is its extremely competitive price but you reveal it almost as a passing thought. Other than that, thanks for the detailed review, as usual.

    I personally test drove the car and there are a lot of negatives.
    1. Notchy gearbox
    2. Long gear throws
    3. Clunky clutch with long travel( totally not suitable for city).
    4. Poor steering feedback, artificially heavy steering.
    5. Poor audio system even in high end.
    6. Non turbo engine is comparable to alto in acceleration. Not responsible at all. Turbo engine is a gem.
    7. The HEADLIGHT is pathetic, especially the led on the top end. Low beam is fine but high beam is almost same as low beam( my main reason to not book the kiger). Night highway drive is a nightmare due to light or you will have to fit an extra accessory headlight.

    Only drawback and missing features which I can see from kiger is cruise control and tyre pressure monitor. Otherwise this could have been completed sub 4 meter SUV.

    But...
    I was waiting for your comments on safety features skipped by Renault like ESC, Hill Hold, ARB, TCS, HBB and disappointed that even you did not mention Magnite Turbo gets these and Kiger Turbo missed it.
    Dzire/Swift AMT gets ESP with Hill Hold then why not Kiger AMT & CVT?
    Kiger Non-Turbo is direct competition to Compact Sedans & Sports/Premium Hatchbacks then why miss such important features 🤷

      Since it's a new car, the longevity will only be known with the passage of time. So we can either take a leap of faith by buying it or go for some proven product. The overall package looks tempting enough but it's your own choice that eventually matters.

    A bit too late BUT i think this is the most detailed first drive video by any major auto mag so far. I also liked the fact that you kept mentioning 'Compact crossover' and not 'compact SUV', which is true. The Kiger comes across as a good compromise for the price. Makes me wonder why come of its competition cost more than twice of it on road. Yes, you may have a slightly better quality / bigger engine and a diesel powertrain option, but still 2x the price? Anyways, I hope Kiger brings in numbers for Renault much like Duster/Kwid did.

      @Ain'tMyself don't understand the recent obsession of Indians with safety. Yes of course it crucial, but at crawling speeds in most cities, with hawkers & cows lining the roads, people driving any which way... just drive between 40-80 & the basic airbags will be just fine. What's the point of stressing these 3 pots over 80 anyway? Then you aren't entitled to ask "kitna deti hai?" coz you're wringing the neck of that small engine... which has been put in there to give the customer a lower cost!!!!!!

      Here are a few pointers: The Altroz comes across as a bit more premium than the Magnite or Kiger and has a punchier/more efficient Diesel option too. So get the Altroz if you want that premium feel and practicality of a diesel. If you are looking for space, tons of features and and adequate performance from a petrol engine for day to day use, the Kiger or Magnite makes more sense. Between the two, the Kiger feels more polished and better tuned than the Nissan. It also has better space management. Hope this helps.
