MPG, running costs & CO2 Rating

3.0 out of 5

Fuel economy is a strong point of the Kadjar, although the frugal diesel was axed from the range and that might limit the car’s appeal to some buyers. That engine could hit more than 55mpg, while the petrol returns up to 44mpg, which is on par with rivals. Renault’s EasyLife package provides a tempting selection of benefits including affordable servicing, while insurance costs will be largely comparable with other cars in this class.

The 1.3-litre petrol engine in the Kadjar is relatively efficient but doesn’t have a particularly appealing Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) band for company car drivers. Rivals with hybrid powertrains will be more suitable for business users, as is the Renault Austral E-Tech hybrid. The 1.5-litre dCi diesel steals the show with its 55mpg fuel economy. Every version of the Kadjar will cost the standard VED (road tax) rate each year.

While the TCe 140 petrol returns solid fuel economy of 45.6mpg, at 140-142g/km, its CO2 emissions are relatively high, placing it at the higher end of the BiK tax bandings.

Insurance

The Kadjar’s insurance groups range from 17 for the entry-level 1.5-litre diesel, rising to group 19 for the top-of-the-range diesel. Petrol-engined models range from group 19 to group 23. Those groups are generally on par with the Nissan Qashqai and even a regular family hatchback such as the Ford Focus.
