If you are in the subcompact SUV market, you are currently spoiled for choice. The newest of them and also the cheapest is that Renault Kiger. The Renault Kiger is a sister car of the Nissan Magnite and is based on the CMF-A + platform co-developed by Renault and Nissan. Consumers today have become increasingly aware of the safety standards for automobiles. In fact, it is one of the most important factors influencing a purchase decision these days. So what about the Renault Kiger?

While the Kiger has not yet been crash tested by an official NC agency, we have an accident report here that reveals a shocking truth about the Kiger’s build quality and safety standards. According to the report, this particular Renault Kiger crashed head-on into a wall at a speed of 35-40 km / h. The damage done to the vehicle even at a relatively slow speed is really worrying. You can clearly see from the pictures that the entire front part of the Kiger was wrinkled from the impact. The bumper fell completely and the hood and front fenders appear to have been damaged in a serious accident.

Since the entire front part collided in this way, several electrical and mechanical components inside were further damaged. Fortunately, the chassis and engine were not damaged in the impact. In addition, both the driver and the passenger in the car were completely safe thanks to the correct and timely deployment of the double front airbags. However, this accident underscores the poor build quality of the sheet metal used for the Renault Kiger. Such damage is relatively quick and practically unacceptable. It is also worrying to think about how the Kiger might be hit at much higher speeds in the event of a major accident.

The Renault Kiger has two petrol engines under the hood. There is a 1.0-liter, three-cylinder naturally aspirated engine that produces 72 hp and 96 Nm peak torque. There is also a 1.0-liter turbo gasoline-powered three-cylinder engine that generates 100 hp and 160 Nm of peak torque. Renault offers the option of both a 5-speed manual transmission and a 5-speed AMT transmission with the basic 1.0-liter NA petrol engine. The 1.0-liter turbo gasoline engine has the choice between a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed CVT transmission.

In terms of equipment, the Renault Kiger is equipped with an 8.0-inch floating infotainment screen and a 7.0-inch TFT digital instrument display. A closer look at the interior also reveals that the double glove box, steering wheel and some switchgear are shared with the Renault Triber. Other functions include a Philips air purifier (optional), wireless charging (optional), an Arkamys sound system, automatic climate control, ambient lighting, keyless entry and stop-start at the push of a button, as well as wireless smartphone replication. The Kiger has tough competition that sets it apart from people like that Hyundai venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Vitara breeze, Ford Ecosport and the same.
