The production of the SUV is already underway at the company's manufacturing facility in Chennai. Moreover, the official bookings of the car will begin immediately after the launch. However, select dealerships across India are already accepting unofficial pre-bookings for the Kiger SUV.

The SUV has started reaching the company's showrooms across the country. Deliveries are expected to begin by early March 2021. As promised by the company, nearly 80 per cent of the design theme is borrowed from the concept version, which was revealed last year. It is based on the CMF-A+ platform and shares its underpinning with the Triber and Nissan Magnite.

When launched, the Renault Kiger will compete against Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and its cousin, Nissan Magnite. The Kiger will be offered in six colour options - Caspian Blue, Radiant Red, Moonlight Grey, Mahogany Brown, Ice Cool White, and Planet Grey.

Visually, the Kiger looks like an upscaled version of the Kwid hatchback. The design is complemented by a chrome-finished front grille, LED projector headlamps, dual-tone diamond-cut alloy wheels, rugged-looking underbody, wheel arch cladding, silver roof rails, sculpted tailgate, C-shaped LED taillamps, a large bumper cladding with reflectors and large faux skid plate. On the inside, we get to see an 8-inch floating touchscreen infotainment display, a 7-inch digital instrument console, climate control, engine start-stop, steering mounted controls, Arkamays 3D sound system, wireless charging, rear AC vents with a 12-volt charging slot, dual-tone paint scheme, fabric upholstery and more.
