Deliveries in Europe start this month.
The Renault Kadjar is on display at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA). Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this year, the Kadjar is priced between 17,995 GBP to 26,295 GBP (INR 17.9 lakhs to INR 26.3 lakhs). The deliveries in Europe will be starting this month.
Based on the CMF platform, the Kadjar was announced with three engine options – a petrol and two diesel engines. The petrol motor is a 1.2-liter TCe turbocharged four-cylinder with direct injection capable of 130 hp. The diesel lineup consists of a 1.5- and 1.6-liter dCi engine developing 110 hp and 130 hp respectively, with gearbox choices including a 6-speed manual or an EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch) transmission.
Renault offers a choice between standard front-wheel drive or optional 4WD on the 1.6-liter dCi and TCe engines. The approach and departure angles are rated at 18 and 25 degrees respectively on this 4.45 m long SUV.
A 7-inch touchscreen R-Link 2 infotainment system, voice activated navigation, heated seats, cruise control, ABS, six airbags, hill start assist, ESC with traction and understeer control, ABS and EBD are among the features available on the SUV.
The Kadjar could be a key product if Renault India decides to launch an SUV above the Duster, to rival the likes of the Mahindra XUV500.
