Today Renault revealed that very soon they are going to present a bran-new compact crossover with a rather odd name - "Kadjar." The official public premiere of the new car is going to take place in March at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Sales are expected to begin this fall.

This strange name consists of two parts – KAD and JAR, obviously. The first part is inspired by "quad" and stands for the excellent off-road capabilities of the "go – anywhere four – wheeled vehicle." JAR, on the other hand, refers to the French words "jaillir" and "agile." They express the smooth agility of the new Renault Kadjar as well as its sudden appearance from somewhere.

With such subtle hints regarding its characteristics, the crossover seems to be designed for passionate enthusiasts who want to discover new horizons and try new terrains. The best thing is that Kadjar is believed to allow them to do it. Going into the wild and coming back to the civilization will be an adventurous experience which will be taken to another level thanks to Renault's new model.

The automaker hasn't announced any other details at this point but Kadjar is thought to be based on the second generation Nissan Qashqai to some extent.

Images and videos will be available on social media daily until the 2nd of February when the wraps of the Renault Kadjar will finally come off.
