Refreshed Renault Kadjar SUV offers new engines and improved interior

5 Renault Kadjar 2018

Renault has unveiled a refreshed Kadjar SUV, featuring revised powertrains and styling changes.

It is now available with updated diesel engines with a selective catalytic reduction system.

The Blue dCi 115 engine increases power by 5PS and torque by 10Nm compared to the previous version. It is available with a manual transmission, and will be available at a later date with the dual-clutch EDC transmission.

The Blue dCi 150 increases output by 20PS compared to the previous version. Mated to a manual transmission, it will be available in both two- and four-wheel drive models.

The refreshed Kadjar is also now available with a 1.3 TCE petrol engine, which is already available in Scenic, Captur and Megane.

It is available in four versions – 140PS with a manual or EDC automatic gearbox and 160PS in both manual and automatic.

It features a gasoline particulate filter (GPF) which destroys particles in the exhaust gases by trapping them in a microporous honeycomb structure that regenerates automatically at regular intervals.

No CO2 emissions or fuel efficiency figures have yet been released.

Exterior styling changes include the integration of LED indicators into the daytime running lights, while the reversing lights and fog lamps also gain LEDs. Kadjar also has a wider grille.

Interior changes include improvements in quality, a new seven-inch multimedia touchscreen, a new control panel for the automatic air conditioning, more ergonomic seats, larger cup holders, extra USB sockets and improved heating distribution.

    Major spec. fail on these, you have to go right to the highest spec. to get a reversing camera, even though plenty of lower ones have the screen. Rear visibility isn't great, a camera is pretty essential these days. It would be more useful than some of the other toys. Same applies to folding mirrors, again, top spec only. Renault don't seem to have much knowledge of British car park spaces! (this is enough to cross it off my list for my wife's replacement as she has to reverse a long alley every day)
