Renault unveils facelifted Kangoo

The new front-end styling reflects Renault’s new design language, marrying it closely with both the rest of the commercials as well as the passenger car range.

There’s a more prominent, vertically positioned logo, new door mirrors and headlights – and inside, there’s a new centre console and new steering wheel.The Kangoo Van range offers two wheelbase lengths, three 1.5-litre dCis (75, 90 and 110PS) and a choice of two- or five-seat versions of the Kangoo Maxi. The five seat ‘crew’ version features a rear seat that can be tipped forward to accommodate particularly long loads.

The latest Kangoo includes Stop-Start, a gear shift indicator, as well as an ECO mode that Renault claims can achieve fuel savings of up to 10 per cent by acting on engine torque, the gear shift indications and accelerator pedal mapping.

New Kangoo also includes a connected multimedia system with in-dash TomTom navigation, with numerous new functions, such as advance warning of hazardous zones and the ability to download applications like the reading out of e-mails. All radios come with USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
