The all new Renault Kiger has made its début in SA. This compact SUV is destined to change the face of the local SUV market, with its resolutely modern and dynamic design, and a suite of features to match.
The all new Renault Kiger strongly represents the latest design evolution pioneered by the Head of Group Design, Laurens Van Den Acker.
“True to the promise of the show-car, Renault Kiger is a robust, dynamic and generous SUV. Armed for travel in the urban jungle we also designed it for escape and confront any type of roads with serenity. Kiger has a SUV coupé look, but its long wheelbase promises great habitability and volume on board. Its “smart cabin” has been specially designed to encourage sharing and conviviality.”
The new Renault Kiger combines the best Renault has to offer: expertise in innovative cars, matched by in-depth knowledge of customer needs, seeking style, dynamism, newness and distinction.
More attractive than a conventional hatch. The exterior of the vehicle is eye-catching with design cues that allude to sportiness. Strong, muscular sculpted lines with a higher ground clearance, aluminium finish skid plates, a sporty rear window finished off with an integrated spoiler, and finer touches to further highlight the new Renault Kiger’s aerodynamic stance.
The Renault Kiger’s cabin is intuitive boasting features normally reserved for upper segments, such as an 8 “ floating touchscreen, wireless smartphone replication, reverse camera, handsfree smart access, ambient lighting, a multi-sense driving mode experience and a 3D ‘surround sound’ ARKAMYS sound system.
The interior of the new Renault Kiger is surprising in so many aspects, effectively combining technology and functionality. It’s generously roomy and ultra-modern with segment leading storage thanks to a multitude of clever cabin storage compartments throughout totalling 29 L and a best-in-class 405 L boot space.
With the new Renault Kiger, that ‘fun-to-drive’ feeling is guaranteed. The all new Renault Kiger features a new turbo-charged petrol engine for more versatility and driving pleasure, providing the perfect balance between performance and efficiency coupled with its 3 multi-sense driving modes.
The body structure of the Renault Kiger is reinforced to meet 3-star GLOBAL NCAP conditions – With safety features including ABS + EBD, 4 Airbags* (*Intens Model), ISO-FIX, Rear Parking Sensors and ESP (exclusive to the turbo engines).
The new Renault Kiger is designed to be more alluring than a 5-dr Hatch, and more competitive than a conventional B-SUV vehicle thanks to its features and competitive pricing.
From the get-go, the striking all-new Renault Kiger commands a second look.
Sporty exterior design.
The all new Renault Kiger is a real SUV with sporty and muscular SUV styling. With its distinct athletic design, the new Renault Kiger combines urban modernity with agility, whichever road it takes. The Renault Kiger’s design was inspired by the Kiger show-car, which was unveiled at the end of 2020.
A sculpted front end enhances the vehicle’s energetic personality. The spoilers boost the design with their pronounced shoulder lines, while the back sills and wheel arches provide further protection. The higher ground clearance (205mm) and functional roof bars heighten the vehicle’s shape and completes its bold SUV look. The higher trim levels boast 16” black diamond cut alloys which enhance the sporty and stylish look of the all new Renault Kiger. The big black arches around the wheels make the body look bolder and sturdier. The 2,500mm long wheelbase offers increased stability on any type of road while optimising the space inside the car, providing optimum comfort for passengers and a boot volume of 405 L, unrivalled within its segment.
The roof of the new Renault Kiger boasts dynamic contours with sleek and taut lines in contrast to the more muscular and solid lower part.
The Renault Kiger is equipped with several features to heighten the sporty look of the vehicle. The front grille with 3D graphic finish with honeycomb shaped chrome effects is a perfect example, while the aluminium finish skid plate further enhances the sporty rear bumper.
The modern and striking front end is accentuated by Renault’s signature LED daytime running lights. The highly distinctive lower part features striking tri-octa LED PURE VISION headlamps, which give the impression of modernity and sophistication.
The tail light units with glossy black inserts are very distinctive within the segment, outlining the new Renault Kiger’s rear double C-shaped lighting signature, with LED tail lights.
The functional roof rail bars (with a 50kg load capacity) further elevate the aesthetics of the Renault Kiger giving the vehicle a more imposing and sportier look.
The top-of-the-range (Intens) derivative is distinguishable by a two-tone body colour. The new Renault Kiger comes in 6 exciting body colours – Cool White; Planet Grey; Moonlight Grey; Mahogany Brown Caspian Blue and Radiant Red.

The higher spec models offer a multi-sense driving experience as well as ambient lighting. The multi-sense feature enables the selection of different driving modes for a completely different driving experience – i.e., Normal, Eco or Sport mode. NORMAL mode offers an optimum driving experience for city driving conditions. It also provides useful information like real-time and average fuel consumption all in a blue colour look.
