Introduction

What on earth is a Kadjar?

It’s another funky name is what it is.

With distinctive rounded styling where so many have gone angular and a front nose that’ll rival the 19th century upper classes the new mid-sized SUV from the French marque is supposed to steal your heart away from things like the Vezel and Qashqai. It’s name too.

Oh did I mention Qashqai?

Because the Kadjar is built off the same platform as the hugely successful Qashqai which means it should be promising.

But to surpass Nissan, Renault has decided that big is better and basically gave the Kadjar some car growth hormone during the design process.

Bear in mind this is no real offroader; it comes front driven and powered by a fairly small engine but that’s no biggie because here people like to call them crossovers and never have any plans to get off the beaten track.

So will it answer the needs of someone who wants an imposing car to feel good about paying the government too much in taxes while still ferrying everyone from his grandma to his newborn baby and all their assorted barang barang without any fuss?

I was quite skeptical about this service but as the saying goes - if you don't try, you don't know...so I tried. I've managed to fetch a good price through this platform. I would recommend all sellers to consider using this platform if you want to sell your vehicle.
