Through an official announcement, the company claimed that more than 1100 Renault Kiger units were delivered to customers across India on the first day of commencement of sales.
Celebrating the commencement of deliveries, Venkatram Mamillapalle, Country CEO & Managing Director, Renault India Operations said “With KIGER, Renault has successfully launched yet another breakthrough product, targeted at the core of Indian’s automotive market. We thank our customers for their encouraging response on KIGER and our dealer partners for their immense support. Following Duster, which made SUVs accessible to a large set of people, not just in India but across the world, Renault KIGER is all set to make SUV aspirations accessible to a whole new set of customers. We look forward to welcoming more customers into the Renault family with this new game-changer", he added.
The Renault Kiger is available in two engine variants. One is powered by a 1.0-litre naturally aspirated engine whereas the more expensive variants feature a new turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine.
