You’re looking at Renault’s best-ever SUV, and that shouldn’t come as a huge surprise given the Kadjar is based on the smash-hit Nissan Qashqai. In several key areas the Renault is even better, with a slightly longer tail providing a bigger boot for family holidays. We think it looks a bit more svelte than the Nissan does, too. Its 1.5- and 1.6-litre dCi engines sip fuel and the Kadjar has neat and tidy handling for its size, making it an easy decision for families to swap from a hatchback or saloon.
