Review

The Renault Kadjar is a great all-rounder that easily takes on the rest of the family SUV class. The Nissan Qashqai still pips it in a few areas, such as ride quality and interior finish, but the Kadjar fights back with cheaper running costs and much better reliability. We recommend sticking with the entry-level petrol, and going for Iconic trim for a good balance of power and tech at a reasonable price.

Trim: Iconic

We reckon Iconic trim is the best value Kadjar trim level. It builds on Play spec and adds sat-nav, keyless entry, front and rear parking sensors and a rear view camera. There’s also automatic headlights, two rear USB sockets and the adjustable boot floor.

Engine: 1.3 TCE 160

You don’t necessarily need to upgrade to this more powerful 158bhp version of the 1.3-litre engine, although it’s less than £1000 more and won’t have a detrimental effect on the running costs.
