Judging by the looks of it, the test mule in these spy photos appears to be a beefed-up version of the Kwid small car. Though the test vehicle is extensively wrapped in camouflage, the floating roof design is quite apparent that we saw on the concept version. It also gets a new pair of alloy wheels, entirely different from what we have already seen in the previous spy pictures. It is seen bearing a split headlamp design with tri-LED projectors positioned in the bumper. At the rear, the Kiger SUV gets a nicely sculpted boot with black cladding on the rear bumper, steeper rear windshield, C-shaped LED taillamps, reverse light and rear wiper.

It will be Renault's first subcompact SUV in India, and will be built on the same CMF-A+ platform that currently underpins the company Triber MPV. It will be manufactured locally at the Renault-Nissan alliance plant in Oragadam, Tamil Nadu.

The carmaker hasn't revealed mechanical details of the Kiger SUV yet. However, we expect the SUV to get the new 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. It's the same unit that will also power the Nissan Magnite. It is also expected to come with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. Expect to see both manual and automatic transmission options on the SUV.

The Kiger will look to establish itself in the highly competitive subcompact SUV space, which boasts of models like the Nissan Magnite, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Tata Nexon and others.
