While Renault has been mostly known as a manufacturer of quirky MPVs and not SUVs or crossovers – unlike alliance partner Nissan, for example – the French carmaker has recently tasted success in these segments, courtesy of the Koleos and Captur compact crossovers. That said, the Renault-Nissan Alliance recently decided to gain a better foothold in the crossover/SUV market by launching the Renault Kadjar, which will be slotted between the aforementioned two models.

Based on the "C/D" version of the new CMF (Common Module Family) platform, the Kadjar is almost identical underneath its sheet metal to the successful Nissan Qashqai, which is now in its second generation. Design-wise, the model is closer to its little brother, the Renault Captur, meaning that the Kadjar will play more on its seduction card when going for a piece of the action in the compact crossover segment. The model set to be sold globally in almost all Renault markets, and it will be the first Renault to be manufactured in China, starting in 2016.

Could this be a new SUV that the French automaker has on the pipeline?

The Renault Kadjar is a relatively new model in the crossover segment. It only made its debut in 2015 and has only been on the market for a few years. I bring this up because our excellent spy photographers managed to capture a peculiar-looking Renault SUV that looks awfully like the Kadjar, except that it isn’t. Could this be a new SUV that Renault is planning to launch in the near future?
