Renault Kadjar motto is soundproofing cockpit. The degree of comfort at higher highway speeds is in a class above the average, the difference between 100, 120 and 150 km / h can be recognized practically only by looking at speedometer. Long shifts and do not get tired. 96 kW four-cylinder turbocharged 1.2 TCe gives the car a completely sufficient dynamic performance, which is a pleasant discovery. The engine pulls rather surprisingly in middle and higher speed than the lower ones. But this is from the perspective of driving a nice feature, although may not suit everyone.
