Renault Kadjar review - MPG, CO2 and running costs

The most efficient Renault Kadjar emits just 111g/km of CO2

Changes to the Kadjar range in 2018 introduced exhaust particulate filters to the entire engine lineup. This in part helps to deliver impressive fuel consumption results: the 1.5 dCi diesel auto returns 57.7mpg on the combined cycle and CO2 emissions of 128g/km. The manual option is only marginally behind, with official figures of 56.5mpg and 131g/km. Combined with the Kadjar’s 52-litre fuel tank, that gives the 1.5 dCi a potential range of almost 700 miles.

The 1.3-litre (138bhp) petrol with manual transmission returns 42.8mpg and emits 147g/km of CO2, while the auto version manages a little better economy with 43.5mpg. The more powerful 158bhp variant delivers 44.1mpg and emits 149g/km of CO2.

Insurance groups 

Insurance groups for the Kadjar range from 17-25, with the 148bhp diesel GT Line versions attracting the most expensive premiums.

Depreciation 

The Kadjar doesn't perform too well on the second-hand market. Average residual values for the Renault crossover sit at around 38%, over 3-years and 36,000 miles.
