Renault Kadjar review - Reliability and safety

Sharing a number of parts with the reliable Nissan Qashqai should stand the Renault Kadjar in good stead

The Renault Kadjar shares many of its parts with the Nissan Qashqai, but it finished behind the Nissan in our 2020 Driver Power survey. However, with a replacement Kadjar model due in 2021, the manufacturer will be expecting a climb up the rankings.

Renault itself finished 15th out of 30 manufacturers in the customer satisfaction poll, ahead of rivals such as Citroen, Volkswagen and Ford.

The Kadjar earned a five-star rating when it was tested by Euro NCAP in 2015, just like the Nissan Qashqai. All but the entry-level model has a lane departure warning, while top-spec cars include a speed alert with traffic sign recognition and a blind spot warning system. Reversing sensors are offered as standard with the Play trim, but all other equipment levels add front sensors and a reversing camera.

Warranty 

Renault offers warranty cover for up to 5 years, with unlimited mileage during the first 24 months, then limited to a total of 100,000 miles or 5 years.

Servicing 

The Renault Kadjar is, of course, available with all the same servicing plans and offers as the rest of the product range. Scheduled servicing is every 12 months or 12,500 miles, and owners can purchase a package that covers this for a set period of time.
