Did you come down from 19's and if so any issues with change over car setting, tps sensors etc also what price are we looking at as I also found the 19's give a harsh ride compared to what I was accustomed too, any info appreciated.

yes the 19s were very firm and cannot deal with a pot hole. i ordered new tpms sensors from ebay and re calibrated on the dash menu. enjoying a smoother ride now.

The Kadjar does have a considerably harsher ride than many rivals and I don't think it's purely down to the tyres/wheels.

I came from a qashqai, older 63plte model. My test for ride on this type of vehicle is to drive over speed humps at the legal, usually 30mph limit. The qashqai could do this in comfort.

Given that I'm looking at the next car already I tried the new qashqai 2 weeks ago. It was on the bigger wheel option. Still a big difference to the Kadjar.

 

To level this up, and it was only a short drive, I did come away thinking that the Kadjar is the nicer car to be in, provided you can live with the ride which whilst not being harsher, is harsher.

James, assuming you found a need for extra ground clearance, was it the low area just behind the front wheels you had issues with? I drive on many rutted farm tracks, it's tht area that seems to ground first.

the front end is quite low so any lift is a bonus. need to get a sump guard and diff guard next for some added protection.
