It’s the revolution … or rather we should say … the “Renaulution”, the Renault Kajdar is no more, long live the Renault Austral! It is therefore now a certainty, the compact SUV is changing its name. And we won’t have to wait long to discover it from all angles since it will be presented next spring. In the meantime, it will be necessary to be satisfied with a teaser photo presenting a close-up of the new name of the future competitor of the Peugeot 3008 on its tailgate.

A name change that speaks volumes

During the presentation of the new strategic plan called “Renaulution” at the start of 2020, Luca de Meo underlined the importance he attached to the C segment, which generates higher margins than the lower ones (A and B, Twingo, Clio, etc.) , the brand, said the press release, “continues” today “its offensive for the reconquest of the C segment initiated with Arkana and the new Mégane E-Tech Electric”. The first is a great little success, especially with private buyers, the second has just been presented, we will have to wait to find out if the diamond brand was right to electrify it but the first rather conclusive test has us allowed to see that she was born under good auspices, let’s wish her good luck.

To succeed there the Kadjar failed, Renault brings out the strategy it adopted a few years ago for its Talisman family sedan, replacing the Laguna, he decided to give it a brand new name, just to start again from a good foot. No question of digging into the universe of the brand as the French manufacturer did by bringing out the names R5 and 4L from the closet, but no question either of being superstitious as it was with its family sedan, Austral is a brand new coat of arms with Latin accents, allowing the model to “claim [ses] French origins “.

Another information shared by Renault, the size of Kadjar’s successor. At 4.51 m long, it is only 2 small centimeters longer, and is still less bulky than the Arkana SUV-coupe (4.57 m). Hopefully he retains the same welcoming qualities as the one he replaces.

Finally, the last element shared, and we have already talked about it, the teaser photo allows you to discover part of the vehicle’s tailgate. Obviously, the new Renault logo is in the game. For the rest, the light signature of the Austral seems to be a mix between that of the new Mégane E-Tech electric with a light strip running on either side of the trunk as well as the latest Captur with headlights forming a “C” on the part exterior. Rendezvous in fine weather to discover this Austral in all its forms.
