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: Play

Even entry-level Play models get essentials such as air-con, cruise control, a 7.0in infotainment system and LED daytime running lights, plus DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity. Other gadgets include cruise control, rear parking sensors, hill start assist, USB socket and Bluetooth audio.

Engine: 1.3 TCE

There isn’t a bad engine in the Kadjar range; even the entry-level 138bhp 1.3 petrol is strong enough, feeling particularly gutsy from low revs and delivering its power in a smooth and predictable manner.
