    What Are The Engine Specifications of Renault Kiger? 

    The Kiger comes with a 1.0-litre normal petrol engine that is capable of producing 72PS of maximum power and 96Nm of peak torque. The same engine also powers the Nissan Magnite in the same state of tune. However, in the Kiger, the normal petrol engine is offered with both manual and AMT transmission options, while the Magnite only gets a manual transmission. The Kiger and Magnite’s power and torque figures are the least in comparison to the rest of the B2-segment SUVs with normal petrol.

    The Kiger is also available with a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that is capable of generating 100PS of maximum power and 160Nm of peak torque. This same engine is also available in the Magnite. In this case, the Kiger’s power and torque outputs are comparable with its rivals, while its torque:weight ratio is the best in the lot. Thus, it can be said that the Kiger’s drivability will be better than the other SUVs in the segment.

    Similar to the Magnite, the Kiger’s turbocharged petrol engine is also available with a CVT type automatic transmission option, and with the automatic transmission, its peak torque output is a bit less. Both the Kiger and Magnite offer a claimed fuel efficiency of 20kmpl, which is the best in this segment.

    Renault Kiger Variant-wise Features

    What Are The Features of Renault Kiger RXE Variant? 

    The Renault Kiger’s base RXE variant is priced at Rs 5.45 lakh. 

    Some of the key features of the RXE variant include - front armrest, front power windows, front and rear power outlet, LED DRLs and roof rails. 

    The following table lists the features that are offered by the 2021 Renault Kiger RXE variant:

    This variant lacks several basic features such as day/night IRVM, adjustable rear headrests, rear power windows, audio system with steering mounted controls and electrically adjustable ORVMs. 

    As the base RXE variant lacks some important basic features, we can’t recommend buying this variant. 

    What Are The Features of Renault Kiger RXL Variant? 

    The Kiger RXL variant is Rs 69,000 costlier than the base RXE variant. This variant’s normal petrol version also comes with an AMT option, while the turbo-petrol engine gets a manual transmission option.

    Some of the missing features in this variant include - adjustable rear headrests, steering-mounted audio controls, height adjustable driver seat, rear wiper and defogger.

    The incremental price of Rs 69,000 of the RXL variant is on the higher side for the mentioned additional features. Moreover, the RXL variant will also attract more tax in some states, as its price is more than the Rs 6 lakh range. 

    We would say that the RXL with the 1.0-litre normal petrol engine should be considered only for those buyers who don’t want to stretch their budget for a higher variant. This variant is also available with an AMT option, which is Rs 45,000 more expensive than its manual transmission counterpart.

    From the RXL variant onwards, the turbo-petrol engine with manual transmission powertrain option is also available, for which you’ll need to spend an additional Rs 1,00,000. For this powertrain, we think that this incremental value is on the higher side. We would suggest that if you really wish to buy the Kiger with this powertrain option and are ready to pay the extra premium for the same, then consider a higher variant for a better overall ownership experience.

    According to our internal data, for its added features, the additional premium of the RXT variant is completely justified. It even offseats the premium for the turbo-petrol engine. With the normal petrol engine along with AMT as well as with the turbo-petrol engine powertrain options, we definitely recommend considering the RXT variant.

    What Are The Features of Renault Kiger RXZ Variant?

    The top of the line Kiger RXZ variant costs Rs 95,000 more than the RXT variant. This variant also comes with all powertrain options that are available in the Kiger.

    As per our internal data, the RXZ variant’s extra features over the RXT variant justify the incremental cost of around Rs 1 lakh. These features primarily enhance the convenience and feel-good factor of the Kiger. If you are considering buying the Kiger with the intention of a long ownership period, then we suggest that you consider buying the RXZ variant. 

    Renault Kiger Variants - Which Variant To Buy?

    Let’s sum up all the variants and our recommendations on the 2021 Renault Kiger. 

    The Kiger’s normal petrol engine is available in all the variants. In this engine version, the RXL variant is the most suitable option for the budget buyers, with both manual and AMT options. The RXL variant covers most of the basic features, but it does compromise on the value. 

    In case of the petrol-manual powertrain, the RXT and RXZ variants are recommended as value-wise sensible buys. However, if you buy these feature-rich variants with the turbo-petrol engine, then your overall ownership experience will be better.

    Here’s a look at our variant-wise recommendation on the 2021 Renault Kiger:

    In case of the Kiger with the turbo charged engine and manual transmission powertrain, it is better to buy the RXT variant than the RXL variant. The RXT variant is a sensible buy in terms of value as well as features. 

    Above the RXT variant, the RXZ variant is a worthy choice, and it primarily adds feel-good and convenience related features. As all the added features make the RXZ a value-wise sensible buy, which you can certainly consider for a better ownership experience. These recommendations are valid in case of both manual and CVT type transmission options.
