Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Renault Kadjar is a spacious family SUV that’s perfect for the family – it just isn’t that exciting inside and is pretty dull to drive.The Renault Kadjar is a large family car that looks smart, is cheap to run and comes with a fairly big boot. It sits above the Renault Captur but below the Renault Koleos in terms of size in Renault’s SUV range.

Pros
Big boot
Spacious cabin
Frugal engines

Cons
Drab interior
Entry-level models quite basic
Less comfortable than a Qashqai

The Kadjar is a crucial car for Renault because it has to do battle in the mid-sized crossover arena.

Pros
Comfy if you go for small wheels,
Decent room for your money,
Improved engines

Cons
Dull to drive,
Unhelpful touchscreen

The 2019 Buick Envision’s more powerful engine, improved transmission, and lower price tag pique our interest.

Pros
Attractive styling
Should still be very quiet
Lower price helps
9-speed automatic could aid fuel economy, engine response

Cons
Turbo is AWD-only
Price climbs fast
Narrow interior
Doesn’t do much to stand out
