The new Renault Kadjar will go on sale priced from £17,995 in July with the first cars entering the UK in September 2015. All UK/European Kadjars will be manufactured in the Palencia plant in Spain, although some production for other markets will take place in China.
The Renault Kadjar is a direct rival to Nissan’s Qashqai with which it shares the architecture of the ‘CMF’ platform under the Renault-Nissan Alliance.
There is choice of three four cylinder engines, the 1.2-litre turbocharged TCe 130 hp direct-injection petrol unit, the 1.5-litre ENERGY dCi 110 hp diesel and the 1.6-litre ENERGY dCi 130 hp diesel.
You can specify the Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) automatic gearbox with the dCi 110 engine. And unlike the Qashqai intelligent four-wheel drive is available on the dCi 130 (top spec cars only) with three operating modes – Auto, LOCK and 2WD.
