Saikhom Mirabai Chanu got India its first medal at the Tokyo Olympics, by coming second in women’s weightlifting (49 kilograms). She hails from Nongpok Kakching in East Imphal, Manipur, and has made us all proud with her dedication and success. 

As a gesture, Renault has gifted Mirabai Chanu a new Kiger SUV to congratulate her on winning the silver medal. She is among the many Olympians who have been rewarded with cars, including an XUV700 for Gold Medallist Neeraj Chopra and a Tata Altroz for those who just missed the bronze medals. 

The Kiger features LED headlamps, a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, an Arkamys sound system with steering wheel-mounted audio controls, drive modes, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rear view camera, four airbags, and rear AC vents. 

Under the hood, the Kiger comes with two petrol engines: a 1-litre naturally aspirated (72PS/96Nm) or 1-litre turbo-petrol unit (100PS/160Nm). The former is mated to either a 5-speed MT or an AMT, while the latter gets a 5-speed MT and an optional CVT.

The Renault Kiger retails from Rs 5.64 lakh to Rs 10.09 lakh. It rivals the Maruti Suzuki Vitara BrezzaTata NexonHyundai VenueMahindra XUV300Toyota Urban CruiserNissan MagniteKia Sonet, and Ford EcoSport.
