New Renault Kadjar ‘will boast class-leading residual values’

The all-new Renault Kadjar compact crossover will boast class-leasing residual values upon its release in the UK, according to independent valuation experts CAP.

CAP predicts an average residual value of 43 per cent for the Kadjar range after three years and 60,000 miles, roughly three per cent bigger than any of its major rivals.

Some of its closest competitors can lose as much as three-quarters of what the owner paid for them within the same time frame, according to the organisation.

Three per cent better residuals than its competitors

As well as that, competitive pricing, low insurance rates and efficient engines to reduce consumption and tax costs, mean that the Kadjar could be one of the cheapest crossover to run in the country.

Priced from just £17,995, every model in the Kadjar range can exceed at least 50mpg, with eight models in its 18-strong line-up comfortably delivering upwards of 70mpg.

Low CO2 emissions also means cheap tax for both private and business owners, while four versions of the Kadjar have a CO2 rating of less than 100g/km, meaning free road tax.

As with all Renault models, each Kadjar also come with a comprehensive four-year/100,000 mile warranty, along with four years’ worth of roadside rescue cover, which extends to all European countries.

Blending elements of SUV, estate and saloon cars into one model, the new Renault Kadjar was first unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this March, and will go on sale alongside Renault’s successful Captur crossover.

Four trims are available, starting with the entry-level Expression+ model, alongside the Dynamique Nav, Dynamique S Nav trims and finally the range-topping Signature Nav trim.

Standard kit includes an automatic electronic parking brake and front foglights, plus LED daytime running lights, tinted windows and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Low running costs, wide range of options

Higher trims also benefit from additional features like larger alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control and leather upholstery, plus a panoramic sunroof and upgraded eight-speaker Bose sound system.

Renault also offers a choice of seven different options packages, which add extra features like more safety equipment, adjustable and heated leather seats and a one-touch folding rear bench.

Order books for the all-new Renault Kadjar are due to open in July, with prices ranging between £17,995 for the entry-level Expression+ model and £26,295 for the range-topping Signature Nav trim.
