French cars generally look very sleek and expressive. The new Renault Kadjar 2016 is no exception. It has a sleek body that is very expressive. The Kadjar is also very handsome and compact. The front-fascia is both very sleek and rounded-off and the beautiful grille also makes the exteriors stand out. The headlights are also very attractively designed.

The rear of the vehicle also looks very attractive. The trapezoidal shaped tail lights are a stand out feature as too is the large-sized tailgate, which makes the car look visually very appealing.

On the inside, the cabin is very attractively designed. The cabin has a lot of plastic in it, but the plastic used is of a very good quality and it helps to improve the looks of the car. The seats are covered with cloth though if you opt for a higher end trim then you will get to sit on leather-upholstered seats. Inside, there is also a nice Bose audio system that produces outstanding surround sound.
