Renault launches Kaiger, a fuel-efficient SUV for Kenyans


Renault has launched a new Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), especially for the Kenyan market. The new 5-sitter SUV, named Kaiger, has already enhanced Renault’s products, including Kenya’s Kwid, Duster, Koleos, Kangoo and Triver.

It is equipped with a 1-liter gasoline engine with a 3-cylinder turbocharger, and has an output of 100 Ps and a torque of 160 Nm. SUV engines have been tested for reliability and longevity and offer the latest innovations already featured in Clio and Capture in Europe.

With a consumption of 5 liters / 100KM (20KM / liter), it boasts the best fuel economy in this category. During the launch in Nairobi on Saturday, Renault MD Pedrocampos said Kaiger was all about creative and practical innovation in the smart cabin combined with practicality.

“”Following Duster, Kwid and Triver, we will introduce the new and latest SUV, Renault Kwid, which is ideal for the Kenyan market.

He added that its long wheelbase promises great comfort on Kenyan roads. The Kaiger SUV combines urban modernity and agility. Equipped with muscular bodywork that exudes sturdiness and dynamism to escape from the urban jungle and experience new driving.

The design was inspired by the Kaiger show car announced at the end of 2020. The carved bonnet, which enhances the car’s personality, sits in front of the impressive bumper. The wings boost the design with its striking shoulder lines, and the black threshold and wheel arches provide additional protection.

The high ground clearance (205mm) and functional roof bar enhance the silhouette of the vehicle and complete the bold SUV look. The interior of the car, which combines technology, functionality, and space, is called a “smart cabin.”

The Kaiger is less than 4 meters long and falls into the category of compact SUVs. Like the Triver, thanks to CMFA + Platform DNA, it provides segment-leading space, cabin storage and cargo space.

The interior is designed to be the perfect combination focusing on the ruggedness of the SUV and sophisticated technology. With a tall center console and an 8-inch (20.32 cm) floating touch screen with wireless smartphone replication, Kaiger’s interior is specially designed to promote sharing and convenience.

In addition, this vehicle boasts a brand new, well-tuned, high-quality sound system. The Auditorium 3D sound system by Arkamys features technology to diffuse 3D sound customized to the material and shape of the room.

The system also automatically adjusts the volume according to the speed of the vehicle at higher trim levels. The system can be activated and tuned on demand to ensure the best sound quality regardless of route.

With the latest hands-free card, which is convenient every day, you can open and close the door automatically and start the engine without a key. Sensors inside the card allow the driver to lock and unlock the door without removing the card from his pocket or pressing a button.

You can start the vehicle without inserting the card. The hands-free system also includes a door auto-lock feature when the driver leaves the vehicle. French car makers remained tough on the cost of new SUVs, which are touted as one of the affordable prices on the market.
