Renault claims that Kiger offers the best-in-segment mileage. As per ARAI Testing Certification, the SUV returned a mileage of 20.5 kilometres per litre. This was for Kiger’s turbocharged 1.0-litre engine. Since the launch of Kiger, Renault has witnessed a steady growth in terms of sales. The SUV offers the customers adequate features along with a very competitive price tag. With the festive season already in full flow, Renault aims to attract a healthy number of customers. Increasing demand for SUVs is helping greatly in the sales of Kiger. More customers are now inclined towards buying SUVs over sedans and hatchbacks. Kiger does deliver a ‘Value-For-Money’ proposition for the customers, which is a great USP for a price-sensitive market like India.
