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.

get the best price

Upgrading to S Edition gets you some extra luxuries such as LED headlights, sportier looking upholstery and a panoramic sunroof, but that’s about it.

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.
