Renault Officially Reveals Kadjar C-Segment Crossover
2016 Renault Kadjar is here! After extensive ad campaign, the new C-segment crossover has been fully revealed. This is Captur's big brother which is set to deliver excellent fuel efficiency and emissions. The car will be distributed in Europe and in many African and Mediterranean Basin countries, followed by China. Kadjar stands out through its athletic exterior styling and both sporty and refined interior.
The vehicle will be offered on either four- or two-wheel-drive, and will encourage adventure while at the same time delivering easy manoeuvrability in town thanks to its compact footprint. Precisely, it is 4.45 metres long and 1.84 metres wide.
Thanks to its Flame Red launch colour, the Renault Kadjar brings a breath of fresh air as well as sense of seduction and inspires passion. The car shares the DNA of the Captur concept car, along with hints of the DeZir concept car. Captur emphasizes the ‘Explore' part of Renault's design strategy.
The front of the car is muscular and expresses strength. The chrome strip continues across the head lights and improves the visual impression of width. The athletic silhouette is continued with the wings, while the sensuous fluidity of its lines is accentuated by the finish of the doors which are flush with the sills. At the rear, the bodywork integrates the bumper. The large 690mm wheels and rims of up to 19-inches exude vehicle's sporty nature.
Inside, the interior mirrors the refinement of the exterior lines. The instrument panel falls naturally in the driver's line, while the horizontal lines of the dashboard design highlight the width of the cabin. Double rows of visible stitching for the seats, door handles and instrument panel cowling additionally contribute for the charming presence of Renault Kadjar's interior.
The crossover also boasts an array of driving aids that are useful for everyday motoring, including ‘hands-free' parking and a reversing camera for easy parking in town. It also delivers low fuel consumption thanks to its Stop and Start system that enables fuel to be saved and reduces pollution in built-up areas.
The dashboard of Kadjar comes with a seven-inch capacitive colour touchscreen TFT display. In addition it is available with the Renault R-Link 2 multimedia system that features voice recognition to control the navigation, telephone, apps and radio.
2016 Renault Kadjar will be officially premiered at the 85th Geneva Motor Show on 5th of March. It will go on sale in the summer in both Europe and a high number of countries in Africa and the Mediterranean Basin region.
