HonestJohn.co.uk Review: Renault Kangoo

The Renault Kangoo is one of the most popular compact vans on the market and it’s easy to see why. Well built, comfortable and practical, it’s ideal for small businesses who want a good quality and versatile van. There are three versions – the Kangoo Compact, the standard Kangoo Van and then the Kangoo Maxi – the latter being available as a two-seat or five-seat crew van.

The standard Kangoo Van is ideal for most needs and has a load space of 3m3 that’s user-friendly with neat touches such as a swivelling bulkhead and folding passenger seat that means longer items can be carried. There’s also a useful optional roof flap that means you can transport things like ladders or pipes.

There are three versions of the impressive 1.5 dCi diesel engine available in the Kangoo range with varying outputs of 70PS, 85PS or 105PS. There’s also a 1.6-litre petrol engine with 105PS although this was dropped when the Kangoo was facelifted in early 2013.

That facelift bought a new front end look with redesigned headlights as well as improvements to refinement with better sound proofing and aerodynamics while the Compact model was dropped from the range. There were also improvements to the engines with more power and better fuel economy. Start/stop is now standard on the 1.5 dCi 75PS and 90PS versions which helps claimed economy increase to 65.7mpg.
