Renault upgrades Kangoo

Renault has revised the Kangoo, improving specification, options and a range of new Euro IV-compliant engines to ensure the new Kangoo 2006 offers even more practicality and value for money than the model it replaces. The new range is on sale now with prices between £9,725 and £11,825.

Trim levels remain the same – Authentique, Venture and Expression – with the loss of the 4x4 version, Kangoo Trekka and Authentique 1.5 dCi 80.

To keep Kangoo 2006 looking fresh, a choice of nine colours will be available, including two new latest additions, Ink Blue and Giverny Green, plus three other metallics.

On the inside, the Venture and Expression models now receive new ‘Gabor’ seat trim and lighter coloured dashboard mouldings to give the cabin a light, contemporary feel, while the Authentique models gain new ‘patch’ cloth seat upholstery, plus stylish new ‘Littora’ wheel trims on the Standard specification includes 60:40 split folding rear seat, ABS, electric front windows with one-touch functionality (Venture and above), immobiliser and remote central locking.

Options include 60W CD-radio (£235), air conditioning and pollen filter (£500), alloy wheels (£500), electric front windows (£125), electric panoramic sunroof (£565), extra tinted glass in rear windows and tailgate (£200), front lateral airbags (£200), heat reflective windscreen (£100), metallic paint (£335) and roof bars (£150).

In addition to ordering individual options, four new option packs have also been created meaning buyers can save up to £115 over buying each item separately.

Cool pack (£950) air conditioning and electric panoramic sunroof; Electric pack (£175) electrically operated/heated door mirrors, external temperature gauge and trip computer; Family pack (£100) armrest between two front seats, child minder mirror, drawer under driver’s seat and rear aviation-style tables; Outdoor pack (£375) extra tinted glass in rear windows and tailgate, roof bars.

Completing the main revisions to the Kangoo 2006 is the introduction of an all-new range of four Euro IV engines, 1.2 and 1.6-litre petrol versions and two 1.5-litre diesel versions, which also receive a slight hike in power, up from 65hp and 80hp to 68hp and 84hp respectively.
