The Renault Austral has been teased as an official replacement for the Kadjar. The new model will maintain a line of internal combustion engine options and will hit the global market closer to the end of next year.
The Renault Austral will measure around 4,5 metres long and adopt a five-seat cabin configuration. It is understood that the new model will source design inspiration from the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. This includes the sleek front face, slim LED head- and taillamps and crossover-focused profile.
According to Auto Express, the Renault Austral will not go the EV route as it will adopt the CMF-C platform which is currently being used by the Qashqai. With this, it is understood that it will provide better packaging over the Kadjar.
It has also been stated that a revised version of the 1,3-litre TCe turbopetrol engine will be available with a power output of 104 kW. Key features for the cabin will consist of the brand’s latest OpenR Link infotainment system which is run by Android Auto. This will be implemented into a 12,3-inch digital dash with a 12,0-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
