The new 2017 Renault Kadjar is set to continue with the same offensive it launched two years ago aimed at making Renault crossovers the best in the market. Well, this time round, all eyes are set on the 2017 Kadjar. For the new model year, the model has received quite a substantial refresh over its previous self. The updates are conspicuously present on the exterior and interior facets. The engine output, though, remains unchanged. Its release date has been set for mid-2017, at least going by what pundits are saying.
For starters, the new model belongs to a growing list of C-segment crossovers, and is expected to weather the rivalry storm through its technology, and convenience features. The Kadjar is predominantly available in Asia, Africa, and in Europe and other parts of the world, but is unavailable for the U.S market.
Some of the reasons that have made the Kadjar such a popular vehicle in the market include its attractive and innovative proposition that shakes up the conventional establishment. Furthermore, it offers a fluid, athletic exterior styling that makes a stand out vehicle in its class. The interior, meanwhile, comes with high-quality fit and finish materials that give it a sporty, and refined character. Modern equipment, and high quality appointments are add to its aesthetic appeal. Again, connectivity ensures that smartphone users stay connected via features such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and the R-Link 2 multimedia system.
When it comes to performance, the model comes with several engines that not only offer decent power but are also fuel efficient. As it can be seen, the new model arguably offers ample value for money without scarifying its performance and appointments.
2017 Renault Kadjar Release Date & Price
No details have been offered by Renault as regards the two crucial details. Nevertheless, the price of the new model isn’t expected to change much from the current price ranging in between $24,000 to $38,000. Its release date, on the other hand, is set for mid-2017, at least according to latest information from industry’s pundits.
2017 Renault Kadjar Exterior
The overall design of the vehicle is a testament of how well elegance and strength can be combined in equal measure. It seduces the market with its Flame Red launch color that brings a breath of fresh air. Much of the styling nitty-gritties are borrowed from the Renault Captur’s DNA while the styling cues are associated with estates, saloons, and SUVs.
According to Renault, the new Kadjar model’s design has been inspired by a design strategy that evokes adventure, strength, and dynamism resulting in a vehicle that is sensuous, and emotional. The exterior evokes a dynamic stance courtesy of the accentuated compact footprint that is 1.84 meters wide, 4.45 meters long, and 1.60 meters in height.
An impression of strength is exuded by the front end. It also benefits from an assertive character look thanks to the chrome strip that extends across the headlamps. Still on the exterior profile, the muscular form of its wings reinforce Kadjar’s flowing, athletic silhouette, while the finish of the finish of the doors is accentuated by the sensuous fluidity lines. Powerful shoulders and sculpted sides add to the overall sensation of strength and dynamism. Around back, the profile remains virtually unchanged apart from the subtle bodywork that establishes a contemporary outlook of the new model.
2017 Renault Kadjar Interior
The interior, just like the exterior, offers modern designs that are in tandem with Renault’s futuristic design language. The Kadjar is carefully appointed, comfortable, and smart reflecting the refinement of the exterior lines on the outside. The instrument panel is driver-centric and is suggestive of how enjoyable the driver feels whenever he’s behind the wheels.
High-quality materials have been splashed throughout the cabin. This combines with an immaculate, precise finish to offer the cabin the kind of refinement that one can only find in a premium SUV like the Renault Kadjar 2017.
In overall, I dare say that the Kadjar interior personality is the quintessential expression of distinction and comfort, at least in the C segment.
Renault is yet to make the available trim models available yet. An update will swiftly follow once they do, most likely towards its release date.
Petrol and diesel engines are available. A 1.5L four-cylinder engine generating 110 horsepower, and a 1.6L four-cylinder yielding 130 hp are available as the only diesel options. For petrol fans, there’s the turbocharged 1.2L four-cylinder engine rated at 115 horsepower and 140 pounds-feet of torque.
Renault is mum about the safety department. But rumor has it that the new 2017 Renault Kadjar will be available with several upscale driver-assisting technologies such as lane-departure intervention, driver exhaustion alert, a blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control, etc. crash impact assessment details are yet to be offered as well.
