Renault Kadjar
Unveiled at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, the Kadjar went into production the same year, with sales starting in Europe in April 2015.

The compact SUV comes with both a two-wheel and four-wheel drive system and is based off the Renault-Nissan Common Module Family platform, the same system as the popular Nissan Qashqai.

The Kadjar may have only been around for a relatively short period of time, but it has been collecting the awards. Named best in class by the CAP Automotive Experts and also Small SUV of the Year in the Car of the Year Awards 2015.

The name, Kadjar, is inspired by the word quad, for four-wheel drive, the jar is representative of the French for agile and jaillir, which translates as something which emerges from suddenly. The naming convention of this vehicle has caused plenty of debate and rumour, with some suggesting that it’s more likely that the name stems from Qajars, which is Kadjars, and is more or a nod to the Qashqai.

The Qajar is an ancient Persian dynasty from Iran, and history tells us that the King of Iran purchased two Renault cars from Belgium in 1900. The cars were delivered to Iran and were the first automobiles in the county.
