Renault India is on a roll by providing several benefits on all their cars, yes, even the recently launched Kiger. The French carmaker is offering discounts worth up to Rs 75,000 along with other comprehensive benefits that'll lure potential buyers. Let's have a look at what do they have to offer.
The flagship SUV, Duster was once a huge seller in the Indian market. But with the launch of Hyundai Creta, the sales declined by a margin. Then the discontinuation of the peppy 1.5L diesel unit affected its sales. It now only comes with a 1.5L petrol and a more powerful 1.3L turbo petrol.
If you are considering 1.5L petrol then you get Rs 45,000 as total benefits. The exchange bonus (with RXS and RXZ) sticks to Rs 30,000 while the loyalty benefits reach as high as Rs 15,000. Loyalty benefits can be availed if you or one of your family member owns a Renault vehicle already. The corporate discount reaches as high as Rs 30,000 while the rural sticks to Rs 15,000.
Coming to the 1.3L turbo petrol then it gets the highest Rs 75,000 discount offer. A straight-up Rs 30,000 cash discount on the RXS CVT and MT variant while Rs 30,000 exchange bonus on RXS and RXZ. It attracts Rs 15,000 loyalty benefits, the same as in the 1.5L petrol. The corporate and rural sticks to Rs 30,000 and Rs 15,000 respectively.
The turbo petrol engine of the Duster is the most powerful in the segment. It generates 154 bhp at 5500 RPM with a peak torque of 245 Nm at 1600 RPM. This engine is mated to a 6-speed manual and an optional CVT gearbox which is amazingly quick.
The 5+2 seater is available with Rs 55,000 for the MY 2020 model and Rs 45,000 for the MY2021 model. The figures are broken as below:
Rs 20,000 exchange bonus + Rs 10,000 loyalty benefits + Rs 10,000 corporate/Rs 5,000 rural. If you choose the MY2020 model then cash discount reach up to Rs 25,000 while the MY2021 gets you Rs 15,000 only.
Renault Triber is powered by a 1.0-litre, naturally aspirated petrol engine. This unit generates 71 bhp at 6250 RPM with a peak torque of 96 Nm at 3600 RPM. It gets a 5-speed manual and an optional AMT unit. In other news, we are also expecting the launch of a turbo petrol engine in the Triber which will then cater to the need of several buyers.
The Kiger remains the most affordable compact SUV in the Indian market currently. It is priced from Rs 5.45 lakh to Rs 9.75 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Even though it is recently launched, Renault is offering 5 years or 1 lakh km warranty as a loyalty bonus. It comes with two engine options - 1.0L naturally aspirated petrol and a more powerful 1.0L turbo petrol engine.
The entry-level hatchback targeting the buyers of Maruti Alto and S-Presso, Kwid retails from Rs 3.18 lakh to Rs 5.39 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Renault is offering discounts worth Rs 52,000 and the breakage for that is shown below -
Rs 20,000 as exchange bonus + Rs 10,000 as loyalty benefits + Rs 10,000 corporate/Rs 5,000 rural. You also get a cash discount worth Rs 20,000 on the MY2021 model and Rs 10,000 on the MY2021 model. The latter also gets an additional Rs 2,000 bonus if you book it online.
