Renault Kadjar crossover officially announced image

A new compact crossover will be introduced in the near future by Renault, as the model has been recently announced.

The French based automaker Renault is taking a step forward with its vehicle production influenced by its partner, Nissan, and after sharing some bits and pieces between its models and then introducing the Captur, a somehow weird rival for the Juke, time has come for the car manufacturer to officially announce yet another crossover. The model in question has been called the Kadjar and it is basically a C-segment crossover, which will slot above the current Captur and it is believed to be based on the second generation of the Nissan Qashqai.

“The name KADJAR is built around KAD- and –JAR. KAD- is inspired by ‘quad’ – representing a go-anywhere four-wheeled vehicle and –JAR recalls the French words ‘agile’ and ‘jaillir’ representing agility and suddenly emerging from somewhere. The sound and spelling of the name have an exotic feel which suggests adventure and discovering new horizons”, is what Renault had to say about the model in its official press release.

The new Renault Kadjar is believed to be riding on the CMF platform, which has been developed together with Nissan, and it should be designed similarly to the current Captur. We are not sure whether or not the company will introduce new and more powerful engines for the upcoming crossover or whether or not this will come with all-wheel drive, but expect it to make its public debut in March, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. More details on it are limited at this time.
