Rumour: Renault Kiger launch to be pushed to 2021

It is rumoured that Renault might postpone the launch of the Kiger sub-4 meter SUV. It could now be launched in 2021.

Earlier reports indicated that Renault was planning to launch the Kiger in July 2020. However, the launch could now be pushed to next year due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the generally negative market sentiment.

The Kiger is expected to be based on the CMF-A+ platform. Spy images suggest that the car could borrow design cues from the updated Kwid. It could get a twin-slat grille with slim triangular lights and tri-pod headlamps positioned lower down on the front bumper.

The Renault Kiger could get a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol engine paired with either a manual or an automated manual transmission (AMT).
