Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Even the tallest adults will be comfortable in the Renault Kadjar’s front seats. There’s plenty of leg and head room, as well as a decent amount of elbow space between the driver and passenger.

The glovebox is a good size and will hold a bottle of de-icer and the owner’s handbook, while the central cubby is deep enough to store something the size of a portable sat-nav. The two fixed cupholders can each hold a large takeaway coffee, although they're between the armrest and the gearlever so they do get in the way a bit.

You do, though, get 'easy-folding' rear seats as standard. That means they drop down when you pull a small lever in the boot.

Boot space

There are some big boots in the family SUV class, and the Kadjar's is well up to par. In fact, at 527 litres, it’s bigger than in the Nissan Qashqai, the Seat Ateca and the Karoq. In our tests, those rivals managed to swallow seven, eight and nine carry-on suitcases respectively, so the Kadjar will swallow pretty much anything you throw at it. 

Even better news is that, with the rear seats folded and the false floor set to its highest position, you're left with a virtually flat extended load bay with no annoying steps or ridges. Dropping the floor to its lowest setting provides extra load bay height for bulky items.
