New Renault Kadjar SUV drops into Geneva 2015: full specs
Engine and spec details on the Renault Kadjar SUV have been released at its Geneva Motor Show debut
Following the debut of the Renault Kadjar crossover SUV at the Geneva Motor Show, Renault has released full details and specs on the car. It will be available with a range of Nissan Qashqai-sourced petrol and diesel engines, and in its most efficient guise, the Kadjar will be capable of returning 74.3mpg economy, with CO2 emissions as low as 99g/km.
From launch, buyers will get a choice of three engines: 110bhp 1.5 dCi and 130bhp 1.6-litre dCi diesels, as well as a downsized 130bhp 1.2-litre TCe petrol. Stop/start technology will be fitted across the range as standard. Also helping trim emissions are a number of aerodynamic aids, which can reduce CO2 output by 4g/km at motorway speeds.
Both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive versions of the Kadjar will be made available, as will manual and automatic transmissions. All-wheel-drive models provide three driving modes, offering up auto, 4WD and 2WD configurations. Front-wheel-drive versions come with Renault’s Extended Grip traction control system.
A raft of driving aids such as park assist, 360-degreee sensors, a rear-view camera and traffic recognition system are on offer with the Kadjar. Renault has also upgraded its infotainment system – it's now called R-Link 2 and features a Bose surround sound system.
Official pricing for the Renault Kadjar will be announced closer to the car’s arrival in showrooms in the autumn, but a figure in the region of £16,000 is to be expected.
