HID is standard in some basic trims with Audi (like A1, A3), upgrade is always LED. With this in mind proper LED is better than HID... By EU regulations headlamps with more than 2000 lumens need to have autoleveling and washing... below that you do not need to have all this. And HID with 2000lm or less is poor, you still need diaphragm on projector lens for high/low beam or two projectors... bulb has shorter lifetime, etc etc...
Real thing is laser headlamp... all other will do with LED instead with halogen (which is realy crap).

The Kadjar I've ordered (Iconic) has Halogen headlights and LED rear lights.

I'm sure the halogens aren't that bad. Is it hard to change a bulb and are they even that expensive?

The halogen bulbs are relatively, (very), cheap compared to all others. Yes, they are ok, but I can only compare to the qashqai. Its a fair comparison I think. The kadjar halogens on mine are crap compared to the HID in the qashqai.
I'm coming towards the end of my time with the renault so am looking at all midsize SUV cars as a replacement. Probably a top spec whatever brand/model. The HID versus LED argument interests me as the HIDs showed euro type blue road sign fantastically well. They were the type that self level checked every time and auto washed every 5 times(?) the washers lights came on.

I have a full led light in my Kadjar 2018, but I want to replace it with lamps from the 2020 model. The difference is the direction indicators, do you think they will work?
