Renault’s new C-segment crossover, the All-New Kadjar, will be priced from just £17,995 when it reaches UK showrooms in September this year. Kadjar, which was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2015, will complement Renault’s hugely successful B-segment crossover, Captur.
Kadjar is being offered in an 18-version line-up based on four trim lines familiar to owners of other Renault vehicles – Expression+, Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav and Signature Nav. All provide a comprehensive standard specification, rising to the truly luxurious at the top-of-the-range. Renault’s fabled active and passive safety has been democratically applied across the range, while connectivity via the easy-to-use R-Link 2 system is fitted to all models above Expression+.
Standard safety features include ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, electronic stability control with traction and understeer control, cruise control, speed limiter, Hill Start Assist, six airbags, seat belts with load limiters and pretensioners at the front, side impact protection bars and ISOFIX child-seat mounting points on the two outer rear seats.
All versions have gravel, dust and rain protection kits, while for comfort and convenience there is an accessory power point, a 12-volt front socket, a trip computer, two-way adjustable steering column and an exterior temperature indicator.
Standard features and personalisation packages
Core features on Expression+ include an automatic electronic parking brake, front foglights, LED daytime running lamps, tinted windows, the 7-inch TFT instrument panel with digital speedometer, all-round electric windows, driver’s seat height adjustment, air conditioning, Bluetooth, a USB socket and a 4 x 20W DAB radio with fingertip controls and an AUX input.
Dynamique Nav adds to this with 17-inch alloy wheels, a cornering function on the front foglights, chrome exterior detailing, extra-tinted rear and tailgate windows, hands-free keycard, automatic door locking, dual-zone climate control, automatic lights and wipers, the Visio system (lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition and automatic headlight beam adjustment), leather-rimmed steering wheel, driver’s seat lumbar adjustment, a 4 x 35W Arkamys 3D digital audio system and the R-Link 2 multimedia system including Navigation and European mapping.
This is further enhanced on Dynamique S Nav with 19-inch diamond-cut alloys, front and rear parking sensors, leather and cloth upholstery, passenger seat height adjustment, one-touch easy-folding rear bench, electrically adjustable and heated door mirrors and the multi-position boot floor.
Finally, there is Signature Nav featuring exclusive 19-inch diamond-cut alloys, full LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, painted front and rear skid plates, side and boot kick plates, ‘Signature’ cloth and leather upholstery with a Nappa leather steering wheel, a height-adjustable passenger seat and the BOSE Energy Efficient eight-speaker sound system including sub-woofer.
Kadjar allows a significant level of personalisation through individual options and cost-saving packages. There are seven themed high-value equipment packages, depending on model.
The Climate Pack for Expression+ delivers automatic dual-zone climate control and automatic headlights and wipers. The Parking Pack on Dynamique Nav adds front and rear parking sensors and electrically adjustable heated and folding door mirrors. For Signature Nav, the Parking Pack Premium includes Park Assist (Handsfree parking and rear parking camera); the Safety Pack Premium adds blind spot warning and automatic emergency braking; while the Techno Pack Premium includes all these options. The one-touch easy rear-seat folding system is offered in the Dynamique Nav’s Convenience Pack, while leather seats with height adjustment and seat heating make up the Leather Pack for Signature Nav.
Other accessories include side running boards, wheel arch extensions, a retractable tow bar which can be released from within the boot and illuminated lower body side mouldings.
New vehicle architecture
Kadjar is based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s versatile new Common Module Family (CMF) architecture, which allows a wide range of cars of different sizes to be created using a variety of modules consisting of out-of-view parts. The platform is based around five available modules: Cockpit, Engine Bay, Front underbody, Rear underbody and Electronic architecture.
The three engines on offer are the 1.2-litre turbocharged TCe 130 hp four-cylinder direct-injection petrol unit, the 1.5-litre ENERGY dCi 110 hp four-cylinder diesel and the 1.6-litre ENERGY dCi four-cylinder 130 hp diesel.
An Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic gearbox is available with the dCi 110 engine. Intelligent four-wheel drive with three operating modes – Auto, LOCK and 2WD –is offered with the dCi 130 in the three upper trim levels.
The three engines, two gearboxes and two drive systems offer fuel economy of up to 74.3mpg, with CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km. Contributors to this are the sleek shape and low weight of the car (from 1,306kg); the Renault engine Stop&Start system, which is standard on all manual models; the double-clutch EDC transmission in place of a more fuel-sapping torque converter system; an ECO driving mode which optimises the engine’s performance when cruising; the Renault Driving eco2 feature to help owners adopt a more economical driving style; and standard brake energy recovery.
Three cars in one
Renault showed how it could mould its instinctively French design flair to the world of crossovers with global appeal with Captur. Kadjar extends this by being effectively three cars in one – a subtle blend of SUV, estate and saloon – designed to slot into a cityscape or the countryside with equal ease.
All versions provide the peace of mind of Renault’s 4+ warranty and assistance package. The car is protected against defects recognised by Renault for four years or 100,000 miles (first two years have no mileage limit). In the event of a breakdown, Renault provides emergency roadside repairs or towing to the nearest dealer 24/7 every day of the year, plus three years’ European cover. There is also a three-year paint warranty and 12 years’ cover against corrosion. Servicing is required once a year or every 18,000 miles.
UK order books open in July, with first deliveries expected in late September. European versions of Kadjar are built at the Palencia plant in Spain. In 2016, Kadjar will also become the first Renault to be made in China as a result of a joint venture with Dongfeng.
