Renault recently previewed the updated Kadjar, which it claims makes progress in all areas.
It looks more or less the same on the outside, while most of the changes are to be found inside. According to Renault, the interior has been redesigned for an even more enjoyable day-to-day driving experience.
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.
The facelifted Kadjar will be equipped with new-generation Renault engines.
There’s a 1.3-litre TCe turbocharged petrol engine, available in various outputs. Next up is the dCi 115 and dCi 150. The latter will be available in front and all-wheel drive variants.
The all-wheel drive transmission on Kadjar benefits from the expertise of Nissan.
This transmission on Kadjar offers a choice of three operating modes:
- 2WD: power is supplied only to the front wheels, to bring down fuel consumption.
- Auto: the onboard electronics automatically splits the torque between the two axles. Up to 50% of torque can be transferred to the rear wheels.
- Lock: the central differential is locked for a permanent 50/50 torque split between front and rear. Reserved for off-road use, this mode is available at speeds of up to 40 km/h.
