Every Kadjar come with six airbags, tyre pressure monitoring and a full suite of stability and traction aids as standard. All but entry-level models come with a lane departure warning system and traffic sign recognition, too. However, blindspot monitoring is available only on the range-topping (and pricey) Signature trims, and automatic emergency braking doesn't come as standard on any Kadjar. You can choose to add it as an option but, again, only on Signature trims.
Euro NCAP awarded the Kadjar five stars (out of five) for safety, which is the same score as the rival Nissan Qashqai achieved (albeit under an older, less stringent set of criteria).
A space-saver spare wheel is optional across the range (a tyre inflation kit is standard). An alarm and engine immobiliser are fitted to every version, and they clearly do their job because Thatcham awarded the Kadjar five stars (out of five) for guarding against being stolen and four stars for resisting being broken in to.
