Renault has revealed its new crossover, the Kadjar. The new age crossover will sit above the Captur in the international markets and is based on the Nissan Qashqai’s platform.
There aren’t any details on the powertrains to be used, but all the details will revealed once the vehicle is officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The vehicle will be available in two-wheel-drive and as an all-wheel-drive . The all-wheel-drive seems similar to the one we have seen in the Duster AWD in India featuring three modes – 2WD, Auto and Lock.
Renault seems to be interested in marketing it as an urban vehicle, however it can take a bit of off-roading with an approach angle of 18 degree and departure angle of 25 degree. The vehicle will be built at the company’s plant in Palencia, Spain and also in China.
Renault launched the updated Koleos last year, however it hasn’t done too well. If Renault does launch the Kadjar for the Indian market it will have to find a place between the Duster and the Koleos. It will compete with the Skoda Yeti, which currently has no competition.
