Renault Kiger compact SUV was launched earlier this year and since its debut, it has been the bestselling model from the brand. Apart from that, it is also the best-looking compact SUV offered in India right now. Now we have the first Renault Kiger to have aftermarket 17-inch massive alloy wheels, the first Kiger to have it.
The 17-inch alloy wheels look dashing and completely go with the design elements of Kiger. As usually happens in our country, the most popular vehicle always gets an aftermarket custom and features and this is yet another example of that. Renault Kiger shares the same platform with Nissan Magnite and both the SUVs are the best example of value for money cars with loaded features and powerful engines. Renault Kiger offered both naturally aspirated and turbo petrol engine options.
The pictures of this Kiger customized SUV were shaped by Plait Alloy wheels on Facebook. The larger wheels give a muscular design and look to the overall SUV design, but it didn’t fill up the wheel arches perfectly. Although, there are few downlines to having these kinds of low-profile massive alloy wheel tires in India looks like matters for the customers.
While the major problem with these tires are low profile tires lower down the overall ride quality of the vehicle and the roads available in India are a little bumpy. Which furthermore increases wear and tear in the suspension system. Other than that, it also affects the steering response of the car. Although, these 17-inch alloy wheels are very impressive with Kiger. Although the Kiger doesn’t have an off-roader design it can be a good off-roader SUV with a few elements set up.
The Renault Kiger comes offered in two petrol engine options – 1.0 Litre NA petrol engine generating, 72 PS and 96 Nm of Tap. The second one is a 1.0 Litre turbo petrol engine developing 100 PS of power and 152 Nm of torque. The powertrain can be had with 5-speed MT and optional 5-speed AMT. Currently, it is priced from Rs 5.64 lakh and goes up to Rs 10.09 lakh ex-showroom. The Compact SUV competes against Nissan Magnite, Kia Sonet, Maruti Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, and so on. This Renault Kiger with 17-inch alloy wheels looks very impressive and badass.
