Our overall rating:
Welcome to a French take on the hugely popular Nissan Qashqai – the equally intriguingly named Renault Kadjar.
As a small SUV, the Kadjar is also a rival to the Kia Sportage, Seat Ateca and Skoda Yeti, but it's the aforementioned Nissan that it has most in common with, because it uses the same platform and engines.
This means Kadjar buyers can choose from turbocharged 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5- and 1.6-litre diesels, although the 1.6 is the only option if you want four-wheel drive.
In terms of interior space, the Kadjar and Qashqai are closely matched, and both offer a high-riding driving postion that gives you a good view down the road. However, the Kadjar's styling is closer to that of its smaller SUV sibling, the Renault Captur.
Read on over the next few pages for our definitive 16-point verdict on the Renault Kadjar, and to see whether you should choose it over the Qashqai. Plus, we'll look at which versions make most sense.
