Buoyed by the success of Captur, Renault is continuing its offensive in the world of crossovers with the launch of Kadjar, the brand's first C-segment crossover.
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 in town thanks to its compact footprint (4.45 metres long x 1.84 metres wide).
Furnished with high-quality interior appointments 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.
The Renault Kadjar will be unveiled at the 85th Geneva Motor Show which opens on 5th March 2015. It will go on sale in the summer.
A seductive take on the world of crossovers
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.
Kadjar stands apart from other crossovers in its segment thanks to features which bestow it with an elegant touch without taking anything away from the sensation of robustness it exudes.
Renault Kadjar's strong character is reinforced by the new lighting signature which characterises the brand's mid-range and high-end models.
An LED (Light Emitting Diode) light guide in the form of the letter 'C' for the daytime running lights combines a sense of status-enhancing distinction with a high-tech feel. The continuity of the chrome strip within the headlight contributes to the impression of elegance and quality exuded by the vehicle.
The similarly modern rear lighting signature creates a rippled light effect, as seen on the Captur concept car. The Renault Kadjar's refined and balanced lines are emphasised by the fitment of body colour door mirror housings and door handles for all versions.
Finally, the use of chrome for the windows and daytime running light surrounds, as well as for the sill guards heightens the impression of strength and quality exuded by this athletic crossover.
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. A 1.4-square metre fixed glass sun roof adds to the balanced feel and brightness of the cabin.
Double rows of visible stitching for the seats, door handles and instrument panel cowling further enhance the Renault Kadjar's interior. Kadjar's personality is expressed as much inside the car as it is through its exterior styling to deliver a uniquely stylish blend of comfort and distinction.
SUV, Estate and Saloon Combined
Available with either 4x2 or 4x4 transmission, Kadjar is equally at home on open roads as it is in built-up areas.
Kadjar blends a subtle combination of SUV, estate car and saloon cues, while retaining the undiluted DNA and design thinking of the Renault brand. It offers an intuitive driving experience and first class travelling comfort for owners looking to get away from the crowd.
The Renault Kadjar takes its robust build from the world of SUVs. With all-wheel-drive, it offers improved traction thanks to a choice of three modes (Auto, LOCK and 2WD), allowing drivers to select the ideal transmission option for any given situation.
The generous 190mm ground clearance and approach and departure angles of 18 and 25 degrees respectively guarantee outstanding driveability whatever the type of terrain. Front and rear skid plates protect the vehicle's underbody, while the stainless steel boot sill guard protects against damage and dirt.
