On 2 February 2015, Renault unveiled its latest crossover —Kadjar— live on the group.renault.com website. This powerful, robust and energetic new car exudes Renault's vibrant personality and extends an open invitation to adventure.

To find out where the name came from, we talked with Cécile Mandonnet-Dupic, who's in charge of Renault's vehicle naming strategy.
Buoyed by the success of the Captur, Renault is continuing its offensive in the world of crossovers with the launch of the Kadjar, the brand's first C-segment crossover. In a fast growing and extremely popular area of the market, the Kadjar will boost Renault's ambitions on the international stage. The sibling to the Captur shakes up established thinking by bringing an innovative and attractive proposition to the crossover market. Discover the first pictures of Renault Kadjar and it's fluid and athletic exterior styling.
