A new color called Aurora Borealis, specifically designed for India, was also revealed by Renault for Kiger SUVs. A highly competitive segment governed by Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet will be exacerbated by Kiger SUVs.

Fantastic Exterior has mesmerized Indian audience, the only thing left to see is “what would be its impact on its rival cars”.

Renault officially called Kiger its upcoming sub-compact SUV and is planning it to enter the lucrative yet closely contested segment featuring Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, Kia’s newly launched Sonet and Toyota’s Urban Cruiser as well as the upcoming Nissan Magnite. If Renault manages to achieve the ambitious aim it has set for itself the Kiger SUV aims to shake up the sub-compact SUV segment a little more with one million sales units to be exact.

A new colour for the Kiger SUV was also launched by Renault, which was specifically designed for the Indian market. The company calls it the Aurora Borealis and the new colour can be seen in all the images posted by the company of the Kiger SUV showcar version. The final production version, Renault says, will be 80 percent identical to this. Kiger is also reported to be having a brand-new turbo petrol engine and promises a spacious cabin with a wide cargo room.

In the Indian market, Renault currently offers Kwid, Triber and Duster, with the first two products experiencing respectable success rate in their respective segments. However it is the Kiger that will bear the highest weight of expectations due to the category in which it will compete once launched.

In recent times, the sub-compact SUV segment in India has expanded by leaps and bounds with multiple options for prospective buyers and Renault Kiger is looking at tapping this rapidly expanding increase.
