Renault Kiger

The Kiger is available in 5 variants - RXE, RXL, RXT, RXT (O) and RXZ. The top model of the Renault Kiger is RXZ with the normal petrol engine and manual transmission costs Rs. 7.91 lakh and with the AMT automatic it costs Rs. 8.41 lakh. So, the normal petrol engine with the AMT automatic is Rs. 50,000 more expensive than the manual transmission.

The RXZ turbo petrol manual costs Rs. 9.01 lakh while the CVT automatic costs Rs. 9.89 lakh. The Renault Kiger RXZ turbo manual is Rs. 1.1 lakh more expensive than the RXZ normal petrol with manual transmission. For the automatic transmission buyers, the price gap between the RXZ turbo and RXZ normal petrol engine is even higher at Rs. 1.48 lakh. The higher price gap is because of the smoother CVT automatic transmission, which is only available with the turbo petrol engine. The normal petrol engine gets the simpler and more affordable AMT-type automatic.

The Kiger top model gets a 1.0-litre normal petrol engine with a 5-speed manual transmission. It makes 72PS of power and 96Nm of torque. The exact mileage figure of the Kiger top model is not available, but it shares the engine transmission and frame with the Magnite, which claims to deliver 18.75kmpl. So, we can expect the Kiger’s fuel efficiency figure to align with those of the Magnite’s.

In addition, the Kiger also gets a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine, which makes 100PS of power and 160Nm of torque. This engine is available with a 5-speed manual and a CVT automatic transmission. It has a claimed mileage figure of 20kmpl with the manual and 17.7kmpl with the automatic transmission.

The Kiger turbo has the best-in-class torque-to-weight ratio. So, you can expect drivability that’s on par with the other turbo petrol SUVs like Sonet turbo, Venue turbo and Nexon. The Kiger’s normal petrol engine has a much lower torque-to-weight ratio. However, the figure is on par with the other non-turbo SUVs like the Sonet 1.2L and Venue 1.2L. This performance is adequate for city use.
