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.

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.

Buyer’s averse to choice will like the fact there’s only one engine in the Kadjar. It’s a 138bhp 1.3-litre that’s strong enough, feeling particularly gutsy from low revs and delivering its power in a smooth and predictable manner. Even so, a 0-62mph time of 9.8sec isn’t anything spectacular.
Well equipped, but falls short of class standards in many othe...

Great to drive and one of our favourite family SUVs<...
Well equipped and plush, but rivals beat it for practicality
