As a crossover, the Renault Kadjar is built from the same mechanical parts as a family hatchback. This helps to make it fuel efficient, comfortable and stable in corners.

On top of these come the shape of an off-roader, bringing a high driving position and increased practicality - but without the cost and inefficiency of a car designed to tackle rough terrain.

It’s an increasingly popular recipe, but crossovers do need a little more space. Scroll down to see whether the extra practicality makes sense for you.

Underneath the bodywork, the Renault Kadjar shares parts with the popular Nissan Qashqai. Both have the same wheelbase - the distance between the front and rear wheels - which gives a good indication of how much space there is for passengers, but the Kadjar is a bit longer, which boosts its boot space.

Even with its mirrors extended, the Kadjar is narrower than the average in its class, which should make it easier to slot onto a driveway or in a garage.

Renault Kadjar boot space

The Kadjar’s extra length is put to good use in the boot, which is larger than the Qashqai’s (430 litres), and average for this type of car. The rear seats fold flat, too, giving you the option of creating a large, level load space. Even so, seats up or down, there’s less room in the Kadjar than the Kia Sportage.

Renault Kadjar dimensions: interior

There’s a comfortable amount of space in the Kadjar, even if the interior height is a bit lower than the average family crossover. This is reduced further when the optional panoramic sunroof is fitted, which does make the car feel more cramped.

Renault Kadjar towing capacity

Renault Kadjar weight

A car’s kerbweight includes the weight of a driver, fuel and luggage to give an indication of how heavy it will be when you drive it in the real-world. Even the heaviest Kadjars are fairly light for this type of car, which helps to boost fuel economy and makes the car feel more nimble in corners.

Renault Kadjar fuel tank

The Kadjar’s impressive economy, in petrol as well as diesel guise, means the standard car’s 55-litre tank is more than adequate for long journeys between fuel stops. Four-wheel drive cars use more fuel, so have a larger 65-litre tank.

Renault Kadjar turning circle

The amount of space a car needs to turn itself around in a single movement is caled the turning circle. For a car of this size, the Kadjar requires relatively little space, although you’ll still need to carry out a three-point turn on most roads.
