Cars produced by the French manufacturers have always been known for their different and unique design. This is something that they rely on to sell cars even in markets which are ruled by other manufacturers. Recently, a new unique car has been unveiled – the 2016 Renault Kadjar – a compact crossover with a unique name and unique design.
2016 Renault Kadjar Review
The car looks so good, that the experts are predicting it a very bright future, in fact, they think that this car is going to be a bestseller in its class, which is quite interesting, since there are lots of great compact crossovers already in the market.
Exterior of Renault Kadjar 2016
First thing you will notice is that the 2016 Renault Kadjar looks quite big for a compact crossover, however, the designers used some visual “tricks” to make the car appear larger than it actually is. The whole front of the car is dominated by a large chrome Renault logo, seated on top of a black grille. The back of the car is very similar to other models from Renault line up – in the center is large chrome Renault logo and just below is Kadjar brending, once again in large chrome letters.
Interior of Renault Kadjar
While the 2016 Renault Kadjar looks amazing on the outside, on the inside can be seen a toned down interior, probably because of the low price of this compact crossover. In order to make it able to compete with others, Renault had to go with lower price for the base model, which usually means less features and equipment.
The base model is going to have cloth seats, while upper trim levels will offer leather upholstery. Upper trim level also offers Bose surround system, surround-view camera, traffic recognition system and parking assist system, which is something that no other compact crossover offers, even in the upper trim options.
2016 Kadjar Engine
First of all, you need to know that this car was developed by both Renault and Nissan and they have decided to use engines that are already in the Nissan Qashqai.
The Renault Kadjar 2016 is going to be offered with only one petrol engine – 1.2l 4-cylinder engine that produces around 130 horsepower. On the other hand, there are going to be two diesel engines – 1.5l 4-cylinder that produces 110 horsepower and 1.6l 4-cylinder that produces 130 horsepower.
Price of new Renault Kadjar 2016
The base model of the 2016 Renault Kadjar should be around $18,000.
The company announced that the new 2016 Renault Kadjar will go on sale in the fall of 2015.
