Now, inside its cabin, the Renault Kiger adopts a dark black and grey colour scheme while following a neat and simple design theme. Talking points are still the 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that takes centre stage, and a 7.0-inch digital instrument cluster, both of which are customisable. The seats, though slim to increase space inside, are adequately padded and provide sufficient support.
The driver seat even gets the seat height adjust which along with the steering adjustment lends a nice driving position with an excellent view of the surroundings. All seats are covered with fabric and leather is not even an option on the top-spec trims. Things done on a budget are noticeable with the feel of hard plastics, no soft-touch materials, and some shiny black surfaces that attract dust and will get scratched easily. Parts and component sharing becomes evident as we've seen many of them, like the door handles, start-stop button, gear lever, power window controls, steering wheel etc., on the Triber. The feel, fit and finish inside could have been better, but is acceptable and, in fact, commendable for a car on a budget.
The Kiger is 3,991mm long, 1,750mm wide, and 1,600mm tall, and has a 2,500mm long wheelbase. Yes, it's not larger than its rivals, but Renault has managed to offer good space inside. You can easily get in and out of the SUV and both rows are good to accommodate even the healthiest of occupants. Though the roofline descends towards the rear section, there's enough headroom for average size individuals like me. It feels quite spacious for four people on-board with more than sufficient legroom and shoulder room.
Even the footboard in the second row is nice and flat, and a third passenger can fit in, but at the cost of shoulder room. Then, there are plenty of storage compartments including two glove-boxes, a deep covered stowage slot in the centre console with a few more, and even one-litre bottle holders in all doors. At 405litre, it's a big boot with no intrusions and a 60:40 split backrest adds to the versatility of luggage needs. The only thing that might be of concern is that it has a high loading lip, so placing in heavy bags is going to be a bit of an effort.
