Renault KIGER show car has been jointly developed by the Corporate design teams in France and Renault India design, in keeping with the evolving preferences and expectations of Indian customers and the changing market trends. The objective while designing and developing this car was to make a sub-4 meter SUV that offers an unmatched road presence with an imposing frontal boldness, which makes it dominate the road.
At first glance, the attractive design of the Renault KIGER show car reflects its energy, fun and power. The sharp upper part is set against the muscular lower part. With a semi-floating roof, a roof-integrated spoiler flag drop, a sloping rear window, and its tapered mirrors, designed like airplane wings, Renault KIGER show car displays a very striking look.
Called “California Dream” as well as “Aurora Borealis”, the Renault KIGER show car body color shows mysteriously changing blue and purple hues, depending on the angle and light. It has been designed to best express “Dominance” and the inner strength of the KIGER show car. Comprising of technical metallic grey with a hint of jungle green reflection, the body color establishes the stable design, with a hint of magic. While dynamic blue-green accents highlight the performance aspect.
Efficient and compact, the Renault KIGER show car has sporty inspirations. Elements like the double central exhaust system, the double extractor, the hexagonal structure accentuate this sporty side. At the same time, numerous design elements of this show car accentuate its SUV adventurous side including the 19” wheels with heavily grooved tyres, roof rails, front and rear skid plates and 210mm ground clearance.
The impressive and impactful front end displays a two-level of full LED headlights and a neon indicator light. At the back, rear LED lighting signature makes the car recognizable with double “C” shaped tail lamps.
Renault KIGER show car is the result of a deep dive and complete analysis of Indian customers’ expectations in the B-Segment. With this show car, Groupe Renault has demonstrated the broad outlines for Renault KIGER that will provide new options to customers looking for a B-hatchback, B-SUV, upgraders from the entry car segment and will cater to both the domestic market in India, as well as global markets.
