    After the test drive I have put away my decision to book the vehicle
    1. The steering is unnecessarily tight and lacks total feedback.
    2. The clutch is hard and long travel.
    3. The gearbox is wierd in the sense it's kinda not smooth and had long travel.
    These 3 things are the most important and basic things that need to be good in a car and drive this one lacks these I don't think one would enjoy it even have a stress free ride. Think twice before buying.
    Also the non turbo engine is totally response less. Turbo engine is a gem.

    Renault has a sub-segment winner. I think the Kiger and the Magnite are scripting a revival for the two brands, paving the way for a bright future (if the momentum is sustained with annual facelifts). However, it does look like the segment is split in three. The Nexon, XUV 300 and Ecosport are the top of the heap. In between are the Venue, Sonet and Brezza. And then the Kiger and Magnite. Each sub-segment fits a certain customer profile - those who pick the Nexon, Ecosport or XUV 300 are not going to compromise, pick a Kiger. Likewise those who want just a Kiger need not shell out more to get a Nexon. The Kiger and Magnite will appeal to hatchback buyers looking to move a segment up, won't necessarily eat market-share from the Venue or Sonet, although expect the Brezza to take a hit. The XUV 300, Ecosport and Nexon largely compete with each other, and therefore won't be rocked by what happens in the other two sub-segments.

      Well said, along with above built quality of those cars are far better than kiger/magnite.. the target could budget customers will sure choice these two ...additionally, fuel price surge; buyer never mind of it.

    Have took it for a test drive. The ride quality is okkayish not to the level of xuv300 or Nexon. Also the vibration & engine noise can put you off. Also there is no safety features like traction control, hill hold, ESP, etc which are now becoming standard.
    To conclude if your budget is within 8Lakhs this is a good choice . Kiger is aimed at the hatchback segment.
