the Comparison with the pastries is just to højrebenet. While a crossover like the Nissan Qashqai is selling like warm bread rolls at the bakery on Sunday morning, is koncernfætteren Renault Kadjar, the refined French flute, which only comes with in the bag every now and then. And it is sin.
The comfortable frenchman has plenty of inner qualities to offer in relation to the Nissan Qashqai, which has long been one of Denmark's most sold car models.
Renault is counting on to increase the model's appeal, with a light facelift. Here Kadjar got the new petrol engines of 1.3 liters, which provide, respectively, 140 and 160 horsepower, and as also available in the Nissan Qashqai and the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class.
We test the Renault Kadjar with the engine at 140 hp, automatic transmission and the middle udstyrniveau, 'Bose', at a price of small 325.000 kroner. Kadjar-the model can be dated back to 2015, and Renault's engineers and designers have taken the gentle fat of the car midtvejsfacelift.
The most striking visual innovation is the easily changed front, where it is possible to upgrade to full LED headlights. They are standard equipment on the 'Bose'model and can be recommended, but unfortunately can not be purchased as an accessory for the cheaper variants of the Kadjar.

Outside views the high Renault Kadjar immediately by more than a Nissan Qashqai, although they have the same wheelbase. Before the doors of the two cars, however, close to be just spacious, but the frenchman has a trunk, which with its 472 litres kaperer 42 litres more than the Nissan Qashqai.
From the driver's seat has a stunning view of a digital instrumenthus and a centre console that is dominated by a infotainmentskærm on the seven inch. The system, Apple has CarPlay, but the screen resolution and speed work, however, something bedaget.
the Seats are, in turn, well-cushioned and comfortable. They therefore play nicely with the ditto-balanced chassis that gives a little more subdued behaviour than the Qashqai.

Here comes the new petrol engine is also in the picture, it has a tad higher torque than its predecessor, and an excellent interaction with automatgearet.
however, It has a big minus: From a standstill in first gear takes automatgearet just as hard fat, such as when the French president, Emmanuel Macron, press the hand with the USA's Donald Trump. So it requires a feathery speederfod, if you do not have to run from the traffic lights with the whistling of the tires.
In the daily, there are plenty of praktikalitet in the Kadjar. The French createurs has turned off a large loaf of a car, which also offers many aflæggerum. It applies, among other things under the base of the trunk. In the same section, however, there is rice to lukkegrebet on the tailgate, which is made of smooth plastic which your fingers can easily slip on.
Even from the least 'Life'-the equipment level offers the Renault Kadjar in nicely with standardmonteret equipment. However, you will sacrifice a few dozen thousand dollars extra and up in the 'Zen'level, if you will have a safety package with emergency brake installed in the car. It is otherwise standard with the Nissan Qashqai. the

Renault Kadjar is the comfortable and overlooked alternative in the crossoverklassen, which in functionality is in line with the koncernfætteren Nissan Qashqai.
Like the Nissan leads Renault ongoing promotions, so with a little vigilance you can get extra equipment with the money.
