Renault India currently sells the Kiger, Duster, Kwid and Triber in the Indian market. It is likely that a mid-size SUV, a flagship model, may be on the cards. Renault India is also said to be working on a sedan but there is no concrete base to this rumour. At the same time, the Renault Triber is set to get a turbo petrol engine but according to reports, that is happening only in 2022. Customers in the meanwhile can choose between a manual or AMT for the naturally aspirated 1.0-litre petrol engine. The Kiger also uses the same engine and transmissions but comes additionally with a more powerful turbocharged motor and CVT too.
