| 03/02/2015 | 0 Comments

Renault is continuing its offensive in the world of crossovers with the launch of Kadjar, the brand’s first C-segment crossover. It will be unveiled to the public at the 85th Geneva Motor Show which opens to the public on 5th March 2015.

Renault_Kadjar_1Captur’s big brother stands out through its fluid, athletic exterior styling. Meanwhile, its interior is both sporty and refined, furnished with high-quality interior appointments and modern equipment.

Renault_Kadjar_2Kadjar comes with an ultra-modern dashboard incorporating a seven-inch capacitive colour touchscreen TFT display and advanced connectivity with the R-Link 2 multimedia system, along with a relaxed experience behind the wheel, courtesy of the latest driving aids such as emergency brake assist, lane departure warning, road-sign recognition with speed limit alerts and a reversing camera.

Renault_Kadjar_5Available with either four- or two-wheel-drive transmission, the Renault Kadjar encourages adventure while at the same time delivering easy manoeuvrability in town thanks to its compact footprint (4.45 metres long and 1.84 metres wide) with a turning circle of 10.72 metres.

Renault_Kadjar_3With all-wheel-drive, it offers improved traction thanks to a choice of three modes (Auto, LOCK and 2WD), allowing drivers to select the ideal transmission option for any given situation. The generous 190mm ground clearance and approach and departure angles of 18 and 25 degrees respectively guarantee outstanding driveability whatever the type of terrain. Front and rear skid plates protect the vehicle’s underbody, while the stainless steel boot sill guard protects against damage and dirt.

Renault_Kadjar_4Kadjar will go on sale this summer in Europe, followed by the majority of the Mediterranean Basin countries and Africa, supplied from the Renault’s Spanish plant in Palencia.

Renault_Kadjar_6Kadjar will be the first Renault vehicle to be manufactured in China also. In December 2013, the Renault Group formalised the creation of a joint venture with Dongfeng and consequently began the construction of a factory in Wuhan with an initial production capacity of 150,000 vehicles, with vehicle manufacturing scheduled to start early in 2016.
