Renault’s new Kadjar small crossover will land in Australian showrooms in November priced from $29,990 before on-road costs, just $1000 cheaper than its entry-level Koleos mid-size SUV sibling.
With three variants on offer, the Life grade opens the range, the mid-tier Zen is priced at $32,990, while the top-spec Intens wears a $37,990 pricetag.
Though the Kadjar shares the same small SUV space as the Captur, which kicks off from $21,990, the former is nearly 330mm longer than the latter at 4449mm thanks to the same underpinnings as the segment-straddling Nissan Qashqai.
Inside the Kadjar is a 7.0-inch ‘R-Link 2’ multimedia touchscreen.
Safety features include automatic headlights and wipers, interurban autonomous emergency braking, hill-start assist, front and rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, tyre pressure monitoring, and cruise control.
The flagship Intens grade gains LED headlights with automatic high beams, semi-automated parking, heated front seats, electronically adjustable driver’s pew, Bose sound system, black leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels, and panoramic sunroof.
Metallic paint is available for an additional $750, while Zen grade buyers can also opt for a sunroof and auto-dimming rear-view mirror for $1000.
