UK market receives new top of the line trim and EDC automatic gearbox for Renault Kadjar TCe 130 image

The compact crossover is now even more family friendly in the United Kingdom, where future Kadjar owners can have it with the well known EDC dual-clutch automatic transmission on the TCe 130 version.

The Energy TCe version will bring to the table a smallish 1.2-liter turbo engine with 132 PS and 205 Nm of torque. The powertrain combined with the EDC twin-clutch automatic on the Clio GT and preceding Megane but not the Kadjar. And the SUV also gets it in the more efficient 7-speed version instead of the regular six speeder. The Kadjar EDC TCe 130 can be had in the United Kingdom from £21,395 if the owner selects the Dynamique Nav TCe 130 Auto EDC trim level. It will cost £1,200 more than the manual version and have the same combined fuel consumption while performance stands at 118 mph top speed and a good ten second to sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h).

The UK unit of Renault has also decided to offer a new trim level on the Kadjar – with this flagship variant called Signature S Nav. It comes packing £1,750 worth of additional equipment compared to the Signature Nav at a premium of £1,400 – standard amenities include panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, hands-free key card, heated and folding door mirrors, R-Link 2 Multimedia system with 7” touchscreen, TomTom Live services and a BOSE sound system.
