The Renault Kadjar has added to its many accolades by being voted the Best Used Car and Best Used Mid-Size SUV in the Auto Express Used Car of the Year 2018 awards. The duo of awards add further strings to the bow of the highly acclaimed Kadjar, officially recognising its unrivalled appeal and suitability as a pre-owned vehicle. After trawling the classifieds and comparing the Renault Kadjar against its rivals and all other potential used cars across 17 categories, the Auto Express judging panel praised the popular crossover for its unbeatable package of value, style, driving dynamics and equipment. Graham Hope, Editor, Auto Express, said: “The Kadjar is one of the best family SUVs on the road. It looks great, has some interesting tech and is good to drive, too, with decent performance and strong fuel economy across the range. It is exceptional value as a second-hand purchase. Few cars appeal so much as an excellent all-rounder, and it is a worthy winner of our Used Car of the Year award.”
The latest awards add to the Renault Kadjar’s ever-growing trophy cabinet. The crossover has won myriad awards, including first place in the Off-Road/SUV category and third place overall in the Auto Express Driver Power 2016 awards, which are determined entirely by owner feedback, and Best Crossover in the 2016 Fleet World Awards. Since its introduction in September 2015, the Kadjar has strengthened Renault’s presence in the crossover market – building on the success of its compact crossover sibling, Captur. Signifying the completion of Renault’s crossover range, the All-New Renault Koleos D-segment crossover launched this summer. The Kadjar’s combination of striking design, efficient powertrains, spacious interior, high levels of standard specification, and five-star Euro NCAP rating have proved a hit with Irish car buyers.
