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: 1.5 Blue dCi

The 113bhp 1.5-litre diesel isn’t particularly quick, but delivers its power smoothly and is gutsy enough from low revs, meaning you rarely have to rev it hard.
