Renault is continuing its success in the world of crossovers with the launch of Kadjar, the brand’s first C-segment crossover. This sibling to Captur shakes up established thinking by bringing an innovative and attractive proposition to the crossover market. The Renault Kadjar stands out through its fluid, athletic exterior styling. Meanwhile, its interior is both sporty and refined, courtesy of the quality of the materials employed and the attention that has gone into its finish.
Available with either four- or two-wheel-drive transmission, the Renault Kadjar encourages adventure while at the same time delivering easy manoeuvrability thanks to its compact footprint (4.45 metres long x 1.84 metres wide).
Furnished with high-quality interior and modern equipment, the Renault Kadjar offers advanced connectivity with the R-Link 2® multimedia system, along with a relaxed experience behind the wheel, courtesy of the latest driving aids.
The Renault Kadjar also benefits from a range of particularly efficient engines which position it at the forefront of the segment in terms of low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. In addition to its sensuous appeal, Kadjar incorporates all the indispensable cues of the crossover world. Its generous ground clearance (190mm) provides an immediate impression of strength and hints at Kadjar’s ability to head off the beaten track.
The structured form of the grille heightens the assertive character expressed by the front end, while the front and rear skid plates – characteristic of SUVs – underline the Renault Kadjar’s adventurous temperament. The large 690mm wheels and rims of up to 19-inches (depending on version) are further pointers to the Renault Kadjar’s sporty nature.
The lower door protective mouldings reinforce the model’s solid stance, while the black wheel arch extensions form an extension of the lower part of the body and provide another indication of the vehicle’s taste for escaping the crowd, as do the anodised aluminium roof bars which add to Kadjar’s dynamic poise.
A refined, sporty interior
The Renault Kadjar offers a smart, comfortable and carefully appointed interior which mirrors the refinement of the model’s exterior lines.
The instrument panel falls naturally in the driver’s line of sight and suggests genuine enjoyment behind the wheel. The horizontal lines of the dashboard design emphasise the width of the cabin.
The Renault Kadjar’s dashboard is pleasant to the touch and of a very high-quality thanks to the use of foam-backed materials. The outstanding quality of the interior combines with a precise, immaculate finish.
The bold, expressive design of the gear lever serves as a reminder of the model’s sporty calling and is enhanced by refined, glittering inlays.With its Flame Red launch colour, the Renault Kadjar brings a breath of fresh air to the market and plays upon its power of seduction. It will be unveiled to the public at the 85th Geneva Motor Show which opens to the public on 5th March 2015 and will go on sale in Europe this summer.
