The Kiger’s two petrol engines, although the same in displacement, get two different automatic gearboxes. Let’s see how frugal they are in the real world

Renault’s offering in the sub-4m SUV space is the Kiger. The SUV, along with its cousin, the Nissan Magnite, is one of the most affordable models in its segment. It is offered with a set of 1-litre petrol engines: a 1-litre naturally aspirated or the other a 1-litre turbocharged unit. While both get a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard, it’s in terms of automatic transmission that they have their uniqueness. The former comes with a 5-speed AMT, while the latter gets a CVT.

In this story, let’s compare the real-world mileage figures of both the automatic transmissions. First, let’s get the basics out of the way:

If your drive is equally divided in the city and on the highway, expect the AMT and CVT equipped variants of the Kiger to differ by around 1kmpl in their mileage. However, for those who travel frequently, the 1-litre AMT version will prove to be more frugal, both in the city and on the highway.

These fuel economy figures can also vary based on your driving pattern and your car’s health. What kind of fuel efficiency have you been getting from your 1-litre AMT or 1-litre CVT-equipped variant of the Kiger? Let us know in the comments below.
