2019 Renault Kadjur coming to Australia…SUV push coming
The 2019 Renault Kadjur will go on-sale in Australia in the second-half of next year with Renault hoping to become a “strong player in the SUV space”.
Renault Australia has confirmed it’ll bring the medium SUV, Kadjur, to Australia in the second half of next year. No pricing or features have been announced, but speaking at this week’s Megane RS launch, Renault Australia boss, Andrew Moore, suggested the brand would be making a big SUV push in 2019.
“It is with great excitement that I can confirm that the Renault Kadjar SUV will be coming to Australia in the second half of 2019. The stylish Kadjar mid-size SUV is a strong seller in Europe and along with our smaller Captur SUV and larger Koleos SUV product offerings, will provide Renault with a genuine SUV line-up to appeal to a wide range of Australian customers.
“Equally as exciting, we have been making strong headways in our ambition to launch two lifestyle based pick-ups in Australia – the Renault Alaskan and Renault Oroch. Increasingly we are seeing customers move into the pick-up segment as a lifestyle choice and we firmly believe that the exceptional European styling of our product offering mixed with strong SUV underpinnings make these Renault vehicles a compelling alternative for customers.
“Further adding to our SUV line-up, I hope, may be the recently revealed Renault Arkana crossover (below). This distinctive new crossover is ready to break the mould of the SUV market thanks to its bold and unique design. We believe the Arkana is a fantastic fit for the Australian market and as such, my team is pushing hard to have this vehicle developed in right hand drive. I hope to make further announcements about this exciting model in the future.
“Our ambition for Renault Australia is to become a strong player in the SUV segment. We’ve already seen success in the popular SUV space with our top-selling Koleos and Captur and our intention is that in the future we will have an SUV that perfectly matches the various lifestyles of all Australians,” Moore said.
