Boulogne-Billancourt, 2 February 2015: Buoyed by the success of the Captur, Renault is continuing its offensive in the world of crossovers with the launch of the Kadjar, the brand’s first C-segment crossover. In a fast-growing and extremely popular area of the market, the Kadjar will boost Renault’s ambitions on the international stage, as it is due to go on sale initially in Europe and in many African and Mediterranean Basin countries, followed by China. The Kadjar will be the first Renault vehicle to be manufactured in China. The new crossover will act as a powerful ambassador to drive the group’s growth in China.
This sibling to the Captur shakes up established thinking by bringing an innovative and attractive proposition to the crossover market.
The Renault Kadjar stands out through its fluid, athletic exterior styling. Meanwhile, its interior is both sporty and refined, courtesy of the quality of the materials employed and the attention that has gone into its finish. Available 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 x 1.84 metres wide). Furnished with high-quality interior appointments and modern equipment, the Renault Kadjar offers advanced connectivity with the R-Link 2 multimedia system, along with a relaxed experience behind the wheel, courtesy of the latest driving aids.
The Renault Kadjar uses the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-C/D platform which is the fruit of four years’ joint development. The platform’s production is shared between Renault and Nissan, with Renault bringing its knowledge and experience to the design and manufacture of the rear suspension and transmissions.
The Renault Kadjar also benefits from a range of particularly efficient engines which position it at the forefront of the segment in terms of low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. The Renault Kadjar will be unveiled to the public at the 85th Geneva Motor Show which opens on March 5, 2015. It will go on sale early next summer in both Europe and a high number of countries in Africa and the Mediterranean Basin region.
