PLUGGING LE GAP

Renault's Kadjar mid-sized SUV is the big brother to the company's Captur model and has been usefully improved in this revised form. Jonathan Crouch checks it out.

Ten Second Review

Renault's Kadjar is a family-shaped mid-sized SUV model that's smart, sensible and, in its way, quite aspirational. As before, this lightly revised version has been developed from much of the same technology that brought us the segment-leading Nissan Qashqai. It's certainly a more interesting family choice than that Focus-class hatch you might have been considering - and there's the option of 4WD if you want some substance to go with the style.

Background

That name first. That had us all guessing. North African tribe? Middle Eastern trade wind? Wrong and wrong. Apparently it's one of those portmanteau French words where 'Kad' is inspired by the world 'quad' (the casual term for a four-wheeled all-terrain vehicle) and 'Jar' is a reference to the French words 'agile' and 'jaillir,' which means to 'emerge quickly'. Still, this is the crew who brought us Kangoos and Twizys, so perhaps it's best not to linger. It's pretty easy to position just what this car is though. Big brother to the smaller Captur crossover, slightly more compact than the bigger Koleos crossover, it's spun off the same platform as alliance partner Nissan's huge-selling Qashqai. Renault reckons there's enough room in the market to go poaching sales from the likes of Volkswagen, Kia and Toyota rather than merely cannibalise Qashqai sales. Let's take a look and see if they're still onto something with this revised model.

Driving Experience

The key change here is the addition of two fresh engines to the range. Well actually, they're now the only engines available in the range, though each can be had in a couple of states of tune. The first unit is the one you might be primarily drawn to given the current zeitgeist, a 1.3-litre four cylinder Tce petrol unit putting out either 140 or 160hp. This powerplant is a decent improvement on its 1.2-litre predecessor and develops its pulling power from low down, which should make town driving easier. Rest to 62mph in a Tce 140 derivative takes 10.4s en route to 126mph - or 9.6s if you opt for the extra-cost EDC automatic version. The Tce 160 variant (which can only be had in manual form), manages 62mph from rest in 9.9s on the way to 130mph. If you fancy a diesel, you'll be directed towards a 1.5-litre Blue dCi unit offering either 115 or 150hp. Again, it's the lower-powered unit that offers the EDC automatic option. A manual 1.5 dCi 115 variant manages 62mph from rest in 11.7s en route to 117mph. As before, the basic suspension set-up (like virtually all the engineering) is carried over from this model's cousin, the Nissan Qashqai, albeit with some Renault-specific tuning. It makes a Kadjar manoeuvrable in town, with a tight 10.72m turning circle, and the driving position has been designed to mirror that of a typical saloon, rather than a high-set 4x4. The front-wheel drive versions are fitted with an 'Extended Grip' system, which is claimed to enhance grip on low-traction surfaces. Four wheel drive is only available on the top 150hp diesel model. The all-wheel-drive system offers three specific modes: Auto, Lock and FWD. If you do choose to take the Kadjar off the beaten track, a 19cm high ground clearance lends it some ability, while front and rear skid plates will help if the 18 degree approach and 25 degree departure angles prove insufficient.

Design and Build

Unlike you happen to be a Renault sales person or an owner of the original version of this car, you'll struggle to notice any changes made to the exterior. So, as before, the Kadjar looks like a scaled-up version of Renault's smaller Captur SUV - which is no bad thing. Of more importance is the news that the interior of this car has been treated to a much-needed re-fettling. The fascia has been given a new 7.0-inch centre-dash touchscreen that's a big improvement on what was offered before. There are smarter instrument cluster displays too. Otherwise, things are much as before, with an underlying structure shared with this model's Renault Alliance cousin, the Nissan Qashqai. It's slightly more spacious in the back than that car mind you. And the boot is a useful 42-litres bigger than a Qashqai's at 472-litres to the tonneau cover. You get handles that drop the rear seats in their 60/40 split, an organiser that prevents your shopping spilling all over the boot when you corner and a split level load floor. There's also 30-litres of oddments storage around the cabin and the front passenger seat can even be folded to use as an impromptu table.

Market and Model

Pricing starts at just over £20,500 and runs up to £30,000, so conforms to the class norm. There's the choice of four trim levels - 'Play', 'Iconic', 'S-Edition' and 'GT Line'. Even the base 'Play'-trimmed versions are well equipped, with 17-inch alloy wheels, tinted windows, front fog lights, auto headlamps and wipers and rear parking sensors. Inside, all models get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto smartphone-mirroring marshalled by a 7-inch centre-dash screen. There's also cruise control, automatic climate control and a synthetic leather steering wheel, plus an electronic parking brake, large cupholders, a sliding armrest and ambient lighting. Move up to an 'Iconic' model and you get 19-inch wheels, front parking sensors, a reversing camera, roof bars and navigation. The 'S-Edition' versions get full-LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear skid plates and special seat stitching. And the top 'GT Line' derivatives vcome with full-leather upholstery, heated front seats and a 360-degree surround view camera system.

Cost of Ownership

As we've said, the 1.3-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines that feature in the Kadjar are the same as those used by the similar Qashqai - and of course get much the same excellent efficiency figures. The 1.5-litre dCi diesel unit is the engine to choose if you feel that fuel station pasties and chocolate bars are sabotaging your fitness regime. This gets 65.7 miles per gallon and 134g/km of CO2 - and the 150hp version of this diesel isn't that much worse. Go for the petrol 1.3-litre TCe 140 variant and you'll manage 134g/km of CO2 and 47.9mpg on the combined cycle. All versions provide the peace of mind of Renault's 4+ warranty and assistance package. The car is protected against defects recognised by Renault for four years or 100,000 miles (first two years have no mileage limit). In the event of a breakdown, Renault provides emergency roadside repairs or towing to the nearest dealer 24/7 every day of the year, plus three years' European cover. There is also a three-year paint warranty and 12 years' cover against corrosion. Servicing is required once a year or every 18,000 miles.

Summary

There are advantages to turning up late to any party and the Kadjar has made the very most of them, especially in this improved form. Building on the market credibility the brand has already earned with its smaller Captur Crossover model, it takes pretty much everything that's good about the segment-leading Nissan Qashqai and clothes those elements in a sleek, slightly more spacious package that's a little more affordably priced. Other competitors aren't as easy on the eye and nearly all struggle to match this Renault when it comes to issues like running costs and practicality. This Renault may not be the 'ultimate urban adventurer' the ads claim, but it's the kind of car that really could add a more appealing dimension to family travel.

When adding optional cost extras

If your chosen optional extras take the vehicle list price above £40,000, the road tax cost increases. Meaning the impact the cost option has on the rental, will be more than the illustrated price of the optional extra. This exludes zero-emission vehicles.

Electric Car Lease Deals

Hybrid vehicles usually come with a petrol or diesel engine, and are accompanied by an electric motor too. This allows the vehicle to utilise both electric and combustion motors, which reduces the CO2 emissions and can offer better fuel economy. Hybrids come in various forms, from Mild Hybrid Vehicles [MHEV], Hybrid Electric Vehicles [HEV] and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles [PHEV]. They are a great alternative to taking the plunge and opting for a full electric vehicle, allowing you to keep your re-fueling routine pretty much the same whilst potentially driving a greener and fuel saving motor. 

Electric vehicles run purely on electric, meaning they produce ZERO CO2 emissions. In terms of running cost, they are one of the cheapest. With some vehicles allowing 300+ miles on a single full charge, the electric vehicle is fast becoming a popular choice on today's UK roads.
