RENAULT has revealed its Kadjar SUV, its first C-segment crossover, prior to its official launch at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
Renault dubbed its newest model as the “sibling of the Captur” on its website and it will take a page from the Nissan Qashqai compact crossover, competing with other models in the likes of the Mazda CX-5, Ford Kuga and Hyundai ix35.
This vehicle will arrive in two guises: two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.
Nissan and Renault have adopted a strategic alliance since 1999, which means that the Kadjar will get the same line of engines as the Qashqai including a 129-hp 1.6-litre turbo diesel and a 142-hp 2.0-litre petrol engine.
The Kadjar is bigger than the Qashqai at the back, of which the former gets 427 litres of load space, 42 litres more than what can be found in the Qashqai.
Technology-wise, Renault has given its latest offering features such as automated parking, road sign recognition and LED headlights, dual zone climate control, electronic parking brake system and keyless entry.
The Renault Kadjar is slated to be sold globally later this year.
