Latest Renault Kadjar SUV hits Irish roads.
Since it first launched in late 2015 the Renault Kadjar quickly established a strong position in the popular compact SUV segment and since then the popular Kadjar has sold over 5,700 models in Ireland. The new facelift Kadjar has arrived on Irish roads this January and is now available from €26,995.
Efficient new petrol and diesel engines are fitted across the range while New Kadjar’s equipment levels are more generous than ever – each version includes Climate Control, 7” touchscreen with Android Auto® and Apple CarPlay®, alloy wheels, parking sensors, and automatic lights and wipers.
The exterior of new Kadjar is more sleek and the body coloured area of the front and rear bumpers is now larger lending a more premium feel. The grille is wider giving a more imposing appearance and the C-Shaped LED lights now incorporate the front indicator which gives a high tech and impressive look. New Kadjar is available with new types of 17- and 19-inch wheels, along with three new colours: “Oural Green”, “Iron Blue” and “Highland Grey”.
The interior has been redesigned for an even more enjoyable day-to-day driving experience. For 2019 the seats are redesigned with dual density foam providing even better support for driver and passengers and also now features length adjustment. The sliding front armrest now adapts to all body shapes. The central part of the dashboard has a new multimedia touch screen with capacitive technology for a brighter display and greater sensitivity. Measuring seven inches diagonally, this screen displays the R-LINK 2 system, with the controls on either side. The screen is flush-mounted for a perfect profile, giving the dashboard a more elegant, unbroken line. On New Kadjar, the R-LINK 2 connected multimedia system is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
There is a new control panel for the automatic air conditioning and other additions include bigger cup holders, bigger bins in the front doors and two rear USB sockets.
The big news for new Kadjar is the addition of the new 1.3TCe 140 GPF engine, one of the finest petrol engines in the segment and this powertrain meets the highest standards in performance and drivability. Performance is smooth and vibration-free with the 4-cylinder architecture. The engine also performs well at low revs, with its generous torque. On Kadjar, this engine is fitted with a gasoline particulate filter (GPF). The all-new 1.3 TCe petrol engine is available in two versions. The TCe 140, available with 6-speed manual or 7-speed EDC automatic gearbox options, is smooth and powerful while the manual-only TCe 160 offers the highest power output ever for a Kadjar. Customers looking to make the transition from diesel back to petrol will be impressed by its performance and real -world fuel consumption.
New Kadjar also features an upgraded 1.5 Blue dCi 115, more powerful than before but still the most economical engine in the line-up, and with AdBlue, cleaner than ever. For customers requiring economy and torque, but with more performance, the all-new 1.7 Blue dCi engine is now available with 150hp and comes in 4x2 and 4x4.
New Kadjar features the Renault Easy Life Trim line up, already available on Mégane, Scenic and Grand Scenic and is very generously equipped.
