The show car version has been officially revealed and the carmaker says the final production version will be 80% similar to this. It is also confirmed that Kiger will get a brand-new turbo petrol engine and promises a roomy cabin with a large cargo area.

A large infotainment screen with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto is a given while a premium sound system, wireless phone charging, steering-mounted controls, and ambient lighting may also find a way in.
Renault has not officially confirmed a launch date for Kiger but it is expected that the car could be driven out in the early parts of 2021 will be a closely-contested segment which features the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Mahindra XUV300, the newly-launched Sonet from Kia and Urban Cruiser from Toyota as well as the upcoming Nissan Magnite.
