When Renault launched the Kiger earlier in February this year, it was the most affordable sub-compact SUV in the country, even more affordable than the Nissan Magnite. Renault have now rolled out the first price hike on the Kiger, which sees the price go up by a maximum of INR 33,000, depending on the variant. Incidentally, the price of the base variant remains unchanged whereas the turbo-petrol manual variants receive the highest revision. Here's a detailed look at the updated price list of the Renault Kiger after its hike.

As you can see from the table above, barring the base RXE trim, prices of all other 1.0L NA petrol variants (both MT and AMT) have been hiked by a considerable amount. However, for the 1.0L turbo-petrol variants, only the manual versions see a price revision while the CVT variants remain unchanged. Do note that all variants of the Renault Kiger are available with dual-tone color options, which further command a premium over their respective monotone counterparts. The Renault Kiger currently tops out at INR 9.75 lakh* for the RXE 1.0L turbo-petrol CVT dual-tone variant.

Even after this price hike, the Renault Kiger is still the most affordable sub-compact SUV in the country.

That said, the Kiger is still more affordable than its sibling, the Nissan Magnite. Earlier last month, Nissan too hiked the price of the Magnite and its prices currently ranges between INR 5.59 lakh and INR 9.90 lakh. Apart from a higher base and top-end price, comparing equivalent variants of both sub-compact SUVs, it is the Magnite that comes out as the more expensive offering.
