The Renault Kadjar receives a new engine. A slip in the web of Renault has delatado it more than likely and imminent incorporation of the engine 1.6 TCe of 163 CV for the SUV Gallic.
All indications are that this version identical to the of its “twin” the Nissan Qashqai, will be presented at the next Geneva Motor Show, which will be held in the month of March.
Mechanics is the known engine 1.6 turbocharged petrol engine 4-cylinder in-line. Will present a couple maximum of 240 Nm. This drive is combined with a transmission manual of six speed and traction to the axis front. Also incorporate the system Start-Stop of series to save one tenth the expenditure of fuel.
