Design

The buyers can look forward to the sculpted bonnet, tri-LED headlights, LED DRLs and a huge 'wing' front grille at the front.  On the other hand, the rear profile boasts of double C-shaped LED tail lights. The design lends a premium look to the vehicle. 


High Ground Clearance

Renault Kiger boasts of a ground clearance of 205 mm which is the same as the most affordable subcompact SUV Nissan Magnite. With a good ground clearance, buyers will be able to navigate through harsh terrains without scraping the vehicle against the ground.
