Buoyed by the success of the Captur, Renault is continuing its offensive in the world of crossovers with the launch of the Kadjar, the brand's first C-segment crossover. In a fast-growing and extremely popular area of the market, the Kadjar will boost Renault's ambitions on the international stage, as it is due to go on sale initially in Europe and in many African and Mediterranean Basin countries, followed by China.

This sibling to the Captur shakes up established thinking by bringing an innovative and attractive proposition to the crossover market. The Renault Kadjar stands out through its fluid, athletic exterior styling. Meanwhile, its interior is both sporty and refined, courtesy of the quality of the materials employed and the attention that has gone into its finish. Available with either four- or two-wheel-drive transmission, the Renault Kadjar encourages adventure while at the same time delivering easy maneuverability in town thanks to its compact footprint (4.45 metres long x 1.84 metres wide). Furnished with high-quality interior appointments and modern equipment, the Renault Kadjar offers advanced connectivity with the R-Link 2® multimedia system, along with a relaxed experience behind the wheel, courtesy of the latest driving aids.

The Renault Kadjar also benefits from a range of particularly efficient engines which position it at the forefront of the segment in terms of low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

The Renault Kadjar will be unveiled to the public at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show which opens on March 5, 2015.

It will go on sale early next summer in both Europe and a high number of countries in Africa and the Mediterranean Basin region.

The Kadjar, a new style for the crossover market

Renault is positioning itself in the C-segment crossover market with a design that blends strength and elegance. With its Flame Red launch colour, the Renault Kadjar brings a breath of fresh air to the market and plays upon its power of seduction.

Renault Kadjar - athletic exterior styling

The Renault Kadjar is a C-segment crossover that draws from the cues associated with SUVs, saloons and estates. It shares the DNA of the Captur concept car, along with hints of the DeZir concept car. The Captur illustrates the 'Explore' petal of Renault's design strategy - a world that evokes dynamism, strength and adventure - while the DeZir, the concept car born from the 'Love' petal, endows the vehicle with an emotional, sensuous touch. The Kadjar is moreover presented in Renault's Flame Red colour which is emblematic of vehicles that inspire passion.

The big brother to the Captur brings a new proposition to the crossover market through its unique design which marks a break from the segment's current trends. The Renault Kadjar combines a bold personality with seductive appeal.

Its compact footprint (4.45 metres long x 1.84 metres wide) and low roofline (1.60m) accentuate the vehicle's dynamic stance.

The front end exudes an impression of strength. The manner in which the chrome strip continues across the head lights enhances the visual impression of width and contributes to the Kadjar's assertive character.

Its flowing, athletic silhouette is reinforced by the muscular form of its wings, while the sensuous fluidity of its lines is accentuated by the finish of the doors which are flush with the sills.

The sculpted sides and powerful shoulders also contribute to the overall sensation of dynamism and strength.

At the rear, the bodywork subtly integrates the bumper and firmly establishes the Renault Kadjar as a high-quality vehicle.

A refined, sporty interior

The Renault Kadjar offers a smart, comfortable and carefully appointed interior which mirrors the refinement of the model's exterior lines.

The instrument panel falls naturally in the driver's line of sight and suggests genuine enjoyment behind the wheel. The horizontal lines of the dashboard design emphasize the width of the cabin.

The Renault Kadjar's dashboard is pleasant to the touch and of a very high-quality thanks to the use of foam-backed materials. The outstanding quality of the interior combines with a precise, immaculate finish.

The bold, expressive design of the gear lever serves as a reminder of the model's sporty calling and is enhanced by refined, glittering inlays.

A 1.4-square metre fixed glass sun roof adds to the balanced feel and brightness of the cabin.

Double rows of visible stitching for the seats, door handles and instrument panel cowling further enhance the Renault Kadjar's interior.

The Kadjar's personality is expressed as much inside the car as it is through its exterior styling to deliver a uniquely stylish blend of comfort and distinction.
