2016 Renault Kadjar Crossovers Characteristic of SUVs
The Renault Kadjar is a C-segment crossover that draws from the cues associated with SUVs, saloons and estates. It shares the DNA of the Captur concept car, along with hints of the DeZir concept car. The Captur illustrates the ‘Explore’ petal of Renault’s design strategy – a world that evokes dynamism, strength and adventure – while the DeZir, the concept car born from the ‘Love’ petal, endows the vehicle with an emotional, sensuous touch. The Kadjar is moreover presented in Renault’s Flame Red colour which is emblematic of vehicles that inspire passion.
The big brother to the Captur brings a new proposition to the crossover market through its unique design which marks a break from the segment’s current trends. The Renault Kadjar combines a bold personality with seductive appeal.
Its compact footprint (4.45 metres long x 1.84 metres wide) and low roofline (1.60m) accentuate the vehicle’s dynamic stance.
The front end exudes an impression of strength. The manner in which the chrome strip continues across the head lights enhances the visual impression of width and contributes to the Kadjar’s assertive character.
Its flowing, athletic silhouette is reinforced by the muscular form of its wings, while the sensuous fluidity of its lines is accentuated by the finish of the doors which are flush with the sills.
The sculpted sides and powerful shoulders also contribute to the overall sensation of dynamism and strength.
At the rear, the bodywork subtly integrates the bumper and firmly establishes the Renault Kadjar as a high-quality vehicle.
A seductive take on the world of crossovers
In addition to its sensuous appeal, the Kadjar incorporates all the indispensable cues of the crossover world.
Its generous ground clearance (190mm) provides an immediate impression of strength and hints at the 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 the Kadjar’s dynamic poise.
The 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.
The Renault Kadjar’s strong character is reinforced by the new lighting signature which characterises the brand’s mid-range and high-end models.
The Kadjar, an assertive crossover to match every mood
While the Renault Kadjar’s lines are honed to meet the exacting demands of customers in the segment, the model’s versatility also answers the needs of families thanks to its practical, modular design. The generously-equipped Renault Kadjar benefits from a raft of relevant, intuitive technologies which contribute to an efficient, relaxed driving experience.
Available with either 4×2 or 4×4 transmission, the Kadjar is equally at home on open roads as it is in built-up areas
The 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.
