Renault India has found a smashing hit with the new Kiger SUV. The Kiger is based on the proven Nissan Magnite platform and differs in terms of design and feature spread. There though is a lower waiting period for the Renault. Now, surprisingly, Renault India is offering the Kiger SUV with an added benefit. Customers buying the SUV in May 2021 will get a loyalty benefit of five years or one lakh kilometres extended warranty. This is only applicable as a loyalty benefit, which includes either exchange with an existing Renault car or buying an additional Renault model. Those looking to trade in their old Pulse or Scala models can definitely avail of this benefit. Nissan on the other hand isn’t offering any benefits on the purchase of the Magnite and this might draw more customers to Renault India showrooms.

There are disc brakes at the front and drum units at the rear, backed by ABS as standard.
