I joined this (the old) forum 2 years back after getting my car. As is normal I'm now looking to swap within the next year so have already started a very open scan of the options.
First thing first i do like renaults, which is maybe why I was somewhat disappointed with the Kadjar, ie, not enough renault/too much nissan.
However, the kadjar , if the early issues have been fixed is still a contender. Tried the newest qashqai, even worse in terms of being up to date but good all the same.
Koleos? to high and wide with little gain in load space unless you want a pallet in the back, it does demand presence on the road but it is a big heavy bugger and not for me
I could go back to the Megane super tourer, in top spec they are better kitted than the Kadjar, near the top of my list, Toyota? the new CRX?V or whatever it's called has such a sloping back as to be unusable for me. Rav4?, maybe.
Been to look at VW, Merc, and Mazda. Not looked at Seat yet? or BMW Audi etc. Toyota. Hyundai, Dacia and Kia also not like.
I really wish the new Kadjar when released in 2019 would be a total revamp, but as I'm told it isn't then the gates are open for a change

I have, but just don't like it and had bad experience of Pugs in the past. I'm sure you understand that a bad experience always "sticks" and can override any front runner. Never owned one but 1 of the company cars in the fleet was a nightmare and given there is so much choice in the medium sized SUV band, well...............................
Posted elsewhere I tried the RAV4 and the Koleos, have also ruled those out too.
Have you looked at the Ford Kuga? After only 6 weeks, we're having to swap because of the poor towing weight on a Kadj… (wish 'er indoors had said about a caravan BEFORE we changed the car). Wasn't on my original list (which was much the same as yours) and with the Mk3 coming out soon, there are some very good deals on Mk2's
