Replacing the Sandero, the Kiger’s youthful styling turns heads and the pricing is very keen, but it has a rather cheap and flimsy feel. The car earns kudos for its well-stocked spec sheet, however, which includes a great infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen.
There’s a choice of two 1.0l engines, paired with a five-speed manual or CVT auto. The normally aspirated 52kW unit feels underpowered, so for those who can stretch the budget, the 74kW turbo version is much perkier.
