The Kiger is priced between Rs 5.64 lakh and Rs 10.09 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Back in June 2021, Nissan commenced exports of the Magnite to South Africa, Indonesia, and Nepal. Its cousin, Renault, has also begun shipping the Kiger to Nepal and South Africa and plans to expand to Indonesia, other parts of Africa, and the SAARC region soon. The carmaker has already dispatched 760 units of the sub-4m SUV to the country.
In India, Renault’s sub-4m SUV is almost readily available in most cities but it faces a waiting period of up to six weeks in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, and Chandigarh. It is priced from Rs 5.64 lakh to Rs 10.09 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
The Kiger is offered with a set of 1.0-litre petrol engines: a naturally aspirated unit (72PS/96Nm) and a turbocharged engine (100PS/160Nm). While the former is mated to either a 5-speed MT or an AMT, the turbocharged unit gets a 5-speed MT and an optional CVT.
It comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, an 8-speaker sound system, a 7-inch display in the instrument cluster, and a PM2.5 air filter. Its safety list consists of up to four airbags, ABS with EBD, and rear parking sensors.
