Renault Kadjar 2020 pricing and spec confirmed: November on-sale date for new French small SUV

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.

All three versions of the Kadjar are powered by a 117kW/260Nm 1.3-litre turbocharged petrol four-cylinder engine, which sends drive to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Standard equipment includes a 7.0-inch ‘R-Link 2’ multimedia touchscreen, seven-speaker sound system, 7.0-inch driver display, dual-zone climate control, 17-inch wheels, gloss-black cabin trim and cloth upholstery.

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.

Stepping up to the Zen adds puddle lights, front and rear fog lights, side parking sensors, speed limit warning, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, satin grey roof rails, push-button start, satellite navigation, and cloth and leatherette interior trim.

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-inc 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.
