The new Renault Kadjar 2017 will be introduced as a compact crossover. Renault and Nissan have collaborated together to produce this vehicle. The two companies got together in a bid to reduce the cost of the new Kadjar. This in turn will help to make it a more competitive vehicle in the C-Segment in Europe. This car is designed for family users and it also offers benefits like reliability as well as the ability to handle all kinds of terrains. However, very powerful engines will not power it but these engines will deliver good fuel economy.
Renault Kadjar 2017 – Exterior and Interior Changes
The new Renault Kadjar 2017 will be the first edition of its kind and hence it makes sense to learn a little bit more about its dimensions. It is 4.450 meters long and about 1.840 meters wide as well as 1.600 meters high. It rides on the CMF platform, which will enable the carmaker to offer an all-wheel drive variant. The AWD system will be an added benefit. Although the prototype had halogen lights the production version will not have them and will instead rely on LED headlights, which are designed to produce about 20 percent stronger illumination. There is also a nice fixed sunroof, which is about 1.4 square meters in area.
Within the cabin, there is a nice infotainment system and the seats are very comfortable and they have an outstanding design. The Kadjar is designed for European markets, which means that all the features within the cabin are more European oriented than American.
Renault Kadjar 2017 – Engine and Performance
It also means that the carmaker will offer greater number of diesel engines than petrol engines. The diesel engine lineup includes a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces a neat 110 horsepower. This may not be a very high amount of power but even so the engine is able to accelerate the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 12 seconds. The fuel economy figures are more impressive with the Kadjar delivering about 75 mpg fuel economy and CO2 emissions are also very low.
A second engine option is also available. This will be the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers a higher 130 horsepower. This engine also produces low emissions and performs at 64 mpg fuel economy. There are also petrol engine options available. This is the 1.2-liter 4-cylinder engine that delivers 115 horsepower and 140 pound feet of torque. As for transmissions, you can choose between the 6-speed manual transmission and the CVT automatic transmission. In addition, you can also opt for either a FWD system or an AWD system.
Renault Kadjar 2017 – Release Date and Price
There will be an extended period of time between the day the promotion of the Renault Kadjar 2017 starts and the day it will be available for sale in dealerships. The new Kadjar made its debut at the 2015 Geneva Auto Show in April. It will be available in dealerships sometime in the beginning of next year. It will also be available in Asia sometime in the third quarter of next year. In Britain, the Renault Kadjar 2017 will have a price tag of 17, 995 British Pounds. Since the Nissan Rogue is already selling in America it does not seem likely that the Kadjar will be offered for sale in that country.
