An unknown prototype disguised as a Renault Kadjar has been spied during cold-weather testing in Europe this week, raising questions as to what the French brand has in the works.
The photos showing the underside of the prototype reveal a wider track than the standard Kadjar, along with a four-wheel steering system, which Renault calls 4Control. Currently, only the Megane hatch and Talisman sedan offer 4Control.
You’ll also notice the tacked-on wheel arch extensions on the body, indicating the production car will likely be wider than the Kadjar.
Considering the Kadjar is only a couple of years old, it’s unlikely this prototype is a new-generation model, though we could be wrong.
Maybe it’s an early test mule for a Kadjar RS? We’ll have to wait and see.
Last month Andrew Moore, Renault Australia’s managing director, confirmed with CarAdvice discussions regarding the Kadjar’s business case were ongoing, after the crossover was previously ruled out for our market due to the high costs associated with shipping it from Spain.
