    Default Renault Kadjar review in 'Drive'

    A reasonably positive review (for an Australian review of a French car)
    https://www.drive.com.au/new-car-rev...ampaign=tile-1

    But it looks like all French cars are now officially classified as 'quirky' (and I quote):

    "Francophiles will feel right at home thanks to the media control pod behind the steering wheel and transmission-tunnel-mounted cruise controls, but otherwise there's very little to offend."

    So what is that supposed to mean ? I'll leave it to team Renault to decide whether to be offended (or not) .

    Cheers

    The cruise control on/off button location complaint is a total mystery to anyone with a brain. I don't turn my cruise control on and off and neither do you, so the control's location is irrelevant. I resume, reset or turn off the cruise control with the steering wheel mounted controls, not the dash or transmission mounted on/off button. I really think a lot of reviewers simply read stuff written by other reviewers, re-hash it and sign their own name at the end of it. It might pay some of them (particularly the Drive ones) to spend a half hour or so with the driver's handbook before they take off.........if they can read, that is.......

    I think that's quite a good (for Renault I mean) review. Usually the conclusion in a French car review involves a 'but...' moment, but this one '100% recommends' a look against the more regular opposition.

    That's true. The Yaris was invented in Australia before the wheel.........

    Having watched a few of the videos that they have released into the wild, I was thinking that the appropriate question to pose is, ‘if they’re old enough to drive, that is’.
