The French manufacturer is currently testing its all-new 2021 Renault Kadjar which has received a mid-cycle refresh. Under the hood, the Kadjar now comes with one engine option more, and some current units will be upgraded for more power and better fuel efficiency.
2021 Renault Kadjar powertrain options
The upcoming 2021 Renault Kadjar will arrive with the familiar petrol and diesel engines but this time it will be upgraded with one new option. After it has been first introduced back in 2015, it has appeared with three engines which will also be available in the 2021 model year. The Kadjar is also powered by a 1.6-liter diesel which can make 130 ponies.The 2021 Renault Kadjar will also get the new 1.3-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which was built in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz and it is also used in the A-Class model. This engine will be able to generate between 115 and 160 horsepower and the torque between 162 and 192 pound-feet. It will be available in 115 hp, 130 hp, 140 hp, and 160 hp versions.
Redesign of exterior
The Kadjar has been present on the market for more than three years. The 2021 Renault Kadjar will now feature a revised front grille which will now get additional chrome details. The front bumper will also be updated with fog lights now placed higher.As for the interior, the carmaker has covered it well, so it is a bit difficult to reveal what we can expect. Since the dashboard has been fully camouflaged, we assume that the 2021 Renault Kadjar could get some important upgrades in that area. It should also receive upgraded active safety features and driver assistance technology.
Release date and price
The 2021 Renault Kadjar might have its first debut at the upcoming 2018 Paris Motor Show this October while the sales should start at the beginning of 2021. Its price is not yet revealed, but it could stay close to the current which starts at $26,000.
