In the year that it’s been on sale, the Kiger has only gone from strength to strength, being one of Renault India’s top volume drivers, with its most recent accomplishment coming in the form of it crossing the magic one lakh sales milestone, and cementing its popularity with Indian car buyers. Not to mention the other accolades that have poured in, being one of five cars all over the world shortlisted for the prestigious World Car Awards this year. For the Kiger, a made-in-India, for India and the world, that’s high praise. Of course, the fact that it’s also been awarded a praiseworthy adult occupant protection 4-star rating by the Global NCAP is further validation that there’s more than meets the eye with the Kiger. And it’s only fitting that the car (and its achievements) we’re celebrating on this journey from Ooty, the Queen of Hills, to Kodaikanal, the Princess of Hills, is worthy of being the king of the segment — the Renault Kiger.
