Renault has confirmed the Kiger will offer an engine from its global powertrain line which means the Kiger would likely be equipped with the HRAO 1.0-litre turbo petrol which is good for 99 bhp and 160 Nm of torque. It is the same engine that powers the new Nissan Magnite. The HRAO engine could also offer a CVT auto option as well.

Upon launch, the Kiger will rival Kia Sonet, Hyundai Venue, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Toyota Urban Cruiser, Mahindra XUV 300, Tata Nexon, and Ford EcoSport.

The newly inaugurated dealership facilities have been designed according to the RENAULTSTORE concept. Renault assures that all necessary measures to safeguard the health and wellbeing of its customers and dealership partners are being taken at all its touchpoints. All dealerships – showrooms and workshops, are being completely sanitised every day before they are opened for customers. There is a manpower health screening for all dealership employees, and only post that employees are allowed to start their work.
