    Kiger looks to be a toy car... Especially the c design rear light is not good looking.

    It's more of a crossover than a compact SUV. But it still feels premium and more practical than magnite.

    Is it worth buying a new petrol car in 2021? Or should i wait for electric car? Please tell because I can't decide between these two 😫!

    These days ,anything and everything is SUV in India , and with rising petrol price , small turbo petrol engines lacks efficiency ! Manufacturer's should switch back to "bigger" NA engines !

    What Comfortable max speed u can drive this car continiously on Expressways ?

  • OhCrap247

    Can we please stop calling these models SUVs?? These are not SUVs by long shot. They are raised hatchbacks with beefy body kits. 72hp just doesn't cut it to make it in the SUV category.

    Wasted opportunity by Renault. Nothing looks exiting. Looks like scaled up model Kwid. Nissan Magnite is clear winner 🏆.

    Nexon n venue are class apart all other compact SUV's.

  • Ravi Karthikeyan
    Ravi Karthikeyan

    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.

    I like ford eco sport the most but having 3 cylinder only is not smooth enough, if they come up with 4 cylinder then it will be the best compact suv

    • Esther Mezhu
      Esther Mezhu

      No bro, Eco sport has 4cylinder and a (1.2 litre) turbo 3cylinder options. All compact SUV's come with a 3cyc if it's mated to a turbocharger.

    Nikhil Bhatia is one best from Autocar India Always look forward for him in a first drive

  • Mr.Cloudy

    It's look like a toy car


    Nothing beats xuv300 in terms of performance, ride, handling, and stability in compact SUV or sub 4m segment... Even the diesel engine is very refined on par with korean rivals.. probably best diesel amt produced by any company

  • Shubham Kanojiya

    sad to see Renault destroying the legacy of Duster with these so-called Compact Suv Kiger. Atleast get the Dacia Duster from Romania.

    • Esther Mezhu
      Esther Mezhu

      Yep, and also the most powerful in segment (1.0 litre 3cyc that makes 120bhp) but you forgot to include Breeza and Magnite.

  • Abhinandan Verma

    the safety ratings will reveal how much of a cost it has been built too! When will it and it's cousin be tested by GNCAP

  • Amitoj Singh
    Amitoj Singh

    Still Venue is the best looking Compact SUV


    I think now is a very good time to go for a hybrid engine.........with .... engine for long commute ev for city commute with atleast 100 km of practical range

    1) Kia Sonet. 2) tata nexon. Others don’t matter.

  • Adithya Vasudevan

    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.

    • Mohamed Wahith F
      Mohamed Wahith F

      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.

  • Nikhil **
    Nikhil **

    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.

    the Kiger looks good!!! would have been great with 4WD & 6-speed manual / 6-speed automatic transmission!!! now it's become hard to decide between the NISSAN Magnite & Kiger!!! by the way RENAULT seriously needs to dump this metallic blue shine colour!!! colours like this look good on portable Bluetooth speakers & limited edition Coca Cola cans not cars!!!

      Wrong information

    • Navaneeth

      22 % Cess is for more than 4 mtr, 2.5+ ltr diesel engine cars like Innova,Carnival etc.Dont fool people please.Also GST compensation cess on vehicles would be withdrawned in 2024.

    • Navaneeth

      this is a SUB-4 METER,less than 1.5 ltr car,it has 28% GST plus 3% GST compensation cess.Total 31 % tax on base price.
