Renault has performed a series of upgrades across the Kangoo Van range, adding goodies similar to those seen on it’s German cousin, the Mercedes-Benz Citan.
The Renault Kangoo has been offered in its current form since 2008, having received a facelift in 2013.
First of all, two new trim levels are now available, the Business and the Business+, with the last one packing features such as the one-touch descending electric front windows, electrically-operated side mirrors, rubber flooring in load area, overhead parcel shelf, center console with armrest, rear parking sensors and body-colored front bumper.
Available options include front passenger and side airbags, cruise control with speed limiter, folding front passenger seat, R-Link infotainment system, automatic headlights and rain-sensing wipers. All models are equipped with electric front windows, ESC, ECO mode, HAS, Grip Xtend and roof bar fixings. ABS with EBD, driver’s airbag, driver’s height adjustable seat, remote central locking, electric variable power steering and a front 12V power socket are also standard.
The updated small van can be had with the DCi 75, dCi 90 and dCi 110 diesel burners. The cheapest version is available from GBP13,200 is the ML 19 dCi 75 Business, but it can go up to GBP17,300 on the LL21 dCi 110 Energy Crew Van Business E6.
The electric Z.E. only comes in the Business range and it starts at GBP16,161, but after the PICG grant is added, the cost drops to GBP12,995. These are available with battery lease or full purchase and add the Voice Pedestrian Warning System as standard. Prices released by Renault for the UK exclude VAT.
