2019 Renault Kadjar Spied, Sports New Face And Redesigned Rear End

Expected to debut later this year, probably at the Paris Auto Show in October, the facelifted Renault Kadjar was spied testing on the streets of Germany.

Compared to the outgoing model, it’s getting the usual reworked front and rear bumpers, probably an updated grille and what seem to be modified headlights. It’s quite tricky to see due to the camouflage, but the updated Kadjar seems to be getting a redesigned rear end with new taillights and tailgate as well.

Renault’s designers have prepped a few changes in the cockpit, too, although it’s possible you won’t notice them unless you’re familiar with the compact SUV. In any casse, there’s a larger infotainment display and redesigned climate control buttons – and that’s about it, revised trim options notwithstanding.

Development is well underway, but there’s still no word on the revamped SUV’s engine range. Nonetheless, the 2019 Kadjar is expected to be offered with petrol and diesel engines mated to manual or CVT gearboxes and with front- or all-wheel drive.

The 2019 Renault Kadjar continues to utilize the Alliance’s CMF platform, just like the second-generation Qashqai, which is already 5 years old. As for its rivals, besides its Japanese ‘cousin’, the French compact SUV will go up against the likes of the Peugeot 3008, SEAT Ateca, Hyundai Tucson and Ford Kuga, to name but a few of its direct rivals.

    The Kadjar and this facelifted model don’t use a CVT gearbox, The Renault Kadjar uses Renault own Dual Clutch Gearbox called EDC (Efficient Dual Clutch). Although Qashqai and Kadjar use the same platform they don’t share automatic gearboxes, Nissan use the CVT (I know I have 2018 Qashqai Tekna CVT) and Renault their own Dual Clutch Gearbox (EDC)
