What Car test earlier this year came out for the QQ saying that it aced it on ride, comfort and quality of trim and build but the Kadjar was a close second and cheaper. Take your pick!

Just had a quick look through the new Kadjar forums, and already people are talking about getting their money back

So it may have managed a good review, but it looks like it's possibly going to be a typical Renault .....

Early days yet, but maybe things will change. Not holding my breath though!!

I am not defending the Kadjar, but do you not think that every time a new car comes out the Trolls jump onto the forums having a go at it. The other QQ forum was full of them when the model was introduced with all sorts of serious problems and complaints which stopped when the idiots lost interest.
I know a similar thing happened on the Canon Digital SLR camera forum when the new 5D model came out, such rubbish spouted no doubt from people who do not own the camera, I believe the same happens with cars with non existent owners.
Forums are not a place to take serious comments from, but luckily the time wasters soon move onto another site.

All well  and good , always going to be nay sayers out there. Anyway we took delivery of a Kadjar last week , after 2 x QQ and a Note for 2 years in between.  View so far -well  it shares platform and 1.5 derv engine, has plenty of power for anything i want to do, drives and feels familiar and relatively easy.
me being a bit of dinosaur there is a learning curve ahead, electric handbrake, keyless ingnition ,auto stop start ( currently turn this off) and an onboard computer system that could help with a moon landing. Time will tell, parked it near a QQ+2 and they are very similar in size.
whatever you drive ,wish you well and safe motoring.  Sadsod

LOL G5,  I am a Glasgow born and raised for better or worse  person, 23 years ago my job if I wanted to retain it  was moved to Edinburgh (difficult for us weggies)  anyway I travelled a while then moved east, still here and dont see me moving back but the fun loving team of former workmates in the west would greet me with the expression  "turncoat"   and now as I have deserted Nissan  (well the 80%) that was not french ! maybe its true . 

all the best and  take care down there in the sunnier bits of UK.    Sadsod

Better warranty, which in my experience Renault honour (unlike Nissan) and Tom Tom sat nav which again is very much better than Nissan mean Qashqai will be deserted soon.

Chris Evans wasn't impressed with the Kadjar he reviewed in this weekend's Event Mag.  He said very much the same about the QQ last year.   But as reviewers go, if its not Ferrari red and doesn't do 0-60 in 2.5 secs, he's not interested........so what's the point? Angry

Totally agree - the couple of column inches he actually devotes to the car were a waste of space.

They need to use someone from the real world, not him.

Does anyone older than 16 take any notice of anything Chris Evan's says? I doubt it

Ha ha - clever software changes naughty words into Disney characters.

Yes - careful use of numbers gets around it. Sadly I put one too many zeros and latest iPad software won't let you always edit and other things you want here

The Feb 2016 edition of What Car? mag has conducted a 3 way  'Shoot Out' between a QQ, Hyundai Tucson and the Renault Kadjar.

The QQ blows them away with a full 5 star rating as  "Still the best small SUV this side of £25,000".  The Kadjar came second with 4 stars and Tucson 3 stars.

The QQ reviewed was the 1.5 dci 110 N-Tec.
