Renault recently declared its intention to modernize every vehicle in its inventory. According to the brand, all of its cars will now have a more luxury quotient. This implies that Renault will now focus on offering a premium experience rather than continuing to chase the volume game. Although the launch date has not been announced, we anticipate it to happen around the end of 2024 or early 2025. 

Renault Kiger facelift – Design changes

As is typical with facelifts, minor design adjustments are to be expected. Renault might modify the front look by adding new headlamps and a grille. Despite the facelift, Renault ought to work on giving the Kiger a more angular and crossover-like appearance. This adjustment will undoubtedly make Kiger feel more at ease in this situation. New alloy wheels, different color schemes, and connected tail lamps at the back are possible additional modifications.

For this price range, the Kiger has a tonne of features. Nonetheless, we should anticipate further goodies as Renault aims to increase the premium quotient. Renault may incorporate technologies like front parking sensors, automated headlights, and auto-dimming IRVM. Additionally, Renault ought to consider adding a sunroof, as this would increase sales. Fit and finish are another area where Renault has to improve; there are problems with the existing model.

We don’t anticipate any significant modifications to the specs because it’s just a facelift. Thus, the 1.0-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine, which can produce 96 Nm of torque and 71 horsepower, will continue to be used. A manual and an AMT gearbox should be available as gearbox options. A 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox can be paired with the 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine (99 horsepower and 160 Nm) as the second engine option.
