Renault Kadjar Facelift Coming With Revamped Center Console

With Renault still out testing its facelifted Kadjar crossover, our spy photographers have managed to catch a glimpse of the interior, showing a cleaner looking center console design.

Despite the changes, about which we’ll talk in a second, it seems that the French automaker is sticking with a horizontal infotainment display for their compact crossover, rather than a large portrait-style one like on the latest Megane, Koleos and Talisman.

A less cluttered design

This prototype clearly features a larger infotainment display than the current Kadjar that takes up some of the space previously reserved for the climate control buttons, which have also been redesigned.

Other than that, the rest of the cabin appears unchanged, from the steering wheel to the gear lever, air vent placement or surfaces that feature contrast stitching. Of course, that’s not to say that new materials/colors won’t be available upon launch.

More imposing exterior

The updated Kadjar should come with new front and rear bumpers, a slightly bigger grille and possibly restyled headlights and taillights, although it’s hard to tell with regards to the latter. The headlights will definitely be new, though, even if they won’t look remarkably different.

As for the rest of the vehicle, it should look the same as before, which is by no means a bad thing since it does have quite a few stylish angles to it.

Underneath the hood, Renault will probably continue to utilize their TCe petrol and dCi diesel engines, mated to either a manual or an X-Tronic CVT automatic gearbox.

If the facelifted Kadjar is to make it into Renault dealerships by the end of the year, it’s possible that it will first make an appearance at the Paris Motor Show this October. Once it goes on sale, it will immediately resume its fight against the likes of the Nissan Qashqai, Hyundai Tucson and Peugeot 3008.

    They should’ve started the redesign with getting rid of that huge shift lever.

    I (legit) honestly Almost thought these were more SpyShots at the next Toyota Supra at first glance (before reading the articles title and clicking on the article).

    Now don’t get me wrong, I actually really really like the Kadjar and it’s design. But I’m just not all too sure that a £19,790 (just over $26k USD) vehicle, should or could be comparable to the interior of the next Supra (which is supposedly $60k) or more. It shouldn’t look similar to the Kadjar (in materials, shape, etc). I really hope that when the cover is lifted, Toyota can surprise me, because right now, I’m not super impressed with the next Supra (which is a vehicle I have been dreaming of for years), But I again will reserve judgement fully until it’s officially revealed.

    Anyways though, I’m actually a little excited to see what Renualt’s done with the Kadjar
