Podcasts and a digital radio are the key. And the Kadjar's has both the radio and a pretty simple hookup to my LG G3.
The digital radio is not perfect, it loses signal rather more often that you would like, but the bluetooth connection to my phone for the selection of audio treats downloaded just for the trip? Perfect.
The touchscreen system is simple to use, with a home button to lead you back should you get lost amongst the many menus, and it's coupled with Renault's tried-and-tested stick-mounted controls to allow ultimate laziness in shifting tracks.
Some of these systems can end up being a nightmare to use, thankfully the Kadjar's is one that straddles that difficult balance of being able to do a million things, but not confounding the user with a million menus. May there be no more boring journeys for me. Now if only it had wireless charging...
