The newest engine to be available on Kadjar can be specified from Dynamique Nav trim level upwards. Ordering is open now, wîth prices starting from £22,915 OTR.
The introduction of the dCi 130 Auto X-Tronic offers buyers greater choice when it comes to automatic transmissions as well as a smoother journey for all occupants. The Auto X-Tronic is a Continuously Variable Transmission mated to the Kadjar's popular 1.6 diesel engine. The dCi 130 Auto X-Tronic transmission provides CO2 emissions as low as 123g/km and an economy of up to 58.9mpg (NEDC Combined). It is available from Dynamique Nav upwards and is priced from £26,015 OTR wîth ordering open now.
With the launch of these new engine and transmission options, Renault Kadjar customers are now able to choose from a total of four engines and three transmissions across five trim levels.
Hands free functionality has been upgraded from Dynamique Nav and above wîth the introduction of a Hands free Keycard wîth Walkaway Function. The driver can keep the key in their bag or pocket and when walking towards the Kadjar, the daytime running lights will turn on, the wing mirrors will unfold, puddle lights will illuminate and the car will unlock all automatically. When walking away from the Kadjar, the daytime running lights will turn off, the door mirrors will close and the car will lock, again automatically.
Since it arrived in the ÚK in September 2015, the Kadjar has strengthened Renault's presence in the crossover market – building on the success of its compact crossover sibling, Captur. Signifying the completion of Renault's crossover range, the All-New Renault Koleos D-§egmènt crossover launched this summer. The Kadjar's combination of striking design, efficient powertrains, spacious interior, high levels of standard specification, and five-star Euro NCAP rating have proved a hit wîth British car buyers wîth sales of over 45,000 since launching in the ÚK two years ago.
The Renault Kadjar range starts from £19,785 OTR and comes wîth a four-year warranty and Renault Assistance package as standard.Source - Renault
