2015 Renault Kadjur revealed
The 2015 Renault Kadjur has been revealed hours after images of compact SUV leaked online, it gets its global debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
RENAULT HAS REVEALED its first ever compact SUV, the Kadjur which will go on-sale this year in Europe and Africa, before rolling out into China and probably Australia, although this hasn’t yet been confirmed. Indeed, the Kadjur will be the first Renault to be built in China, although Europe and UK cars will be built at Renault’s factory in Spain. Right-hand drive cars will begin production in Autumn (Northern Hemisphere).
The bigger brother to the Renault Captur, the Kadjur will be offered in both front-drive and all-wheel drive configurations. It measures 4450mm long,1840mm wide and 1600mm high. It offers a generous190mm of ground clearance and sits on wheels up to 19-inches (depending on the model) – approach and departure angles measure 18- and 25-degrees, respectively. It offers a turning circle of 10.72m.
According to Renault, the Kadjur’s front-end gives an impression “of strength” while the chrome strip running across the front gives a sense of width. As far as the pictures are concerned, the Kadjur definitely has presence and clearly takes styling cues from the Megane and the Clio.
As for the interior, Renault says “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 interior offers impressive cabin space. In the back, the height-to-roof lining dimension (910mm) and 1456mm of elbow room are amongst the best in the segment. The Renault Kadjar also provides 30 litres of stowage space in the cabin.
We’ll have more information once Renault reveals the Kadjur in full at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 March.
