Renault’s stylish SUV ups the ante with updated styling and a focus on comfort.
Customers rated design as a major selling point of the outgoing Kadjar, and the new model accentuates and refreshes its assertive sense of style. Its chrome-accented bumpers feature extra colour-coding, paired with new alloy wheels up to 19 inches in diameter, and a wider grille flanked by headlights which integrate the indicators into the car’s LED lighting signature.
For business users, New Kadjar steps up long-distance comfort with subtle updates throughout the cabin. The reprofiled seats feature double-density foam and firmer side bolsters, while GT Line also includes extendable thigh support, helping to reduce fatigue for high-mileage drivers.
It’s more intuitive, too; new climate control thumbwheels feature integrated temperature and fan speed displays, the window switches are backlit, the door bins are larger and rear occupants have their own ventilation and USB charging sockets from Iconic. With a large boot capacity, New Kadjar offers the style drivers want with the flexibility their work and home life demands.
Making it Easy
New Kadjar is the latest model to join Renault’s Easy Life range, structured around four generously-equipped trim levels. It means drivers can take advantage of the latest Renault technology and low P11d pricing, without the need for complicated and costly options and packs.
New Kadjar is well-appointed from the entry-level Play version. Automatic headlights and wipers, cruise control and rear parking sensors are standard, while ambient lighting adds a touch of luxury to the cabin. Behind a flush-fit panel in the dashboard, the seven-inch touchscreen is more responsive than in the outgoing car, and features Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone connectivity*.
Iconic builds on an already comprehensive specification with keyless entry, front parking sensors, lane departure warning and 19-inch wheels, while Renault’s advanced R-LINK 2 infotainment system adds TomTom® LIVE navigation and DAB digital radio. Rear-seat passengers get two USB sockets and their own air vents.
Step up to S-Edition, and New Kadjar includes light grey skid plates, full LED ‘Pure Vision’ headlights and a fixed panoramic sunroof, bathing the blue-stitched interior with light. And, at the top of the range, GT Line prioritises luxurious comfort, including a blind sport warning, 360-degree sensors for easy manoeuvring and full leather seats with extendable thigh support.
The engine line-up is all new, comprising two petrol and two diesel Euro 6d-Temp compliant power units developed with Daimler. All of these next-generation engines feature the latest Renault emission control technologies, as well as improved driveability and performance for end-users and reduced fuel consumption to minimise costs for operators.
Diesel engines comprise two Blue dCi units, both featuring selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to reduce NOx output. The Blue dCi 115 offers a 5hp power increase over its predecessor, with an over-boost function for short bursts of acceleration – useful when overtaking or joining a motorway. Equipped with the six-speed EDC dual-clutch gearbox, this returns 67.2mpg, while emitting 111g/km CO2. A dCi 150, producing 150hp, will follow shortly after launch – optionally available with selectable four-wheel drive.
New and efficient petrol engines are just as worthy of note, attracting the same 27% Benefit-in-Kind banding as their diesel counterparts^. The 140hp and 160hp TCe turbocharged engines displace a mere 1.3 litres but offer strong low-rev performance and fuel economy of up to 51.3mpg. Both are fitted with a gasoline particulate filter, while the TCe 140 can be paired with a six-speed EDC gearbox.
