THE KANGOO: THE BEST OF THE CHEAP RENAULT VANS?
One of the top sellers in the compact van class, the Kangoo is a versatile vehicle that’s perfect for delivering smaller loads in urban situations, or where space is at a premium. It’s a common sight on the roads, in commercial and non-commercial contexts alike.
UK Vans Direct are expert suppliers of new light commercial vehicles, including a full range of cheap Renault vans. They’re here to run through whether the Kangoo is the best of these cheap Renault vans, and why.
Tailored to your needs
Available in standard and Maxi body lengths, you can choose the length that suits you and the capacity you need.
The standard Kangoo has a load volume of 3 cubic metres, making it big enough for one Europallet, and the Maxi can fit two Europallets in its 4 metres of cubic capacity. You can also choose to have a fold flat forwards passenger seats, increasing the maximum load to 3.5 and 4.6 cubic metres. The smallest of the cheap Renault vans, the Kangoo’s small size is belied by its surprisingly generous capacity.
Performance and running costs
The 1.5 dCi diesel engine is available in 75bhp, 90bhp, and 110bhp models. They provide around 55-60mpg of fuel consumption and emit between 123g/km and 130g/km of CO2, making them fairly fuel efficient and kind to the environment too. Services are advised 25,000 miles apart, or two years, making it economical and low maintenance.
The interior of the Kangoo is simple and functional, with Bluetooth hands free connectivity and an auxiliary input for MP3 players as standard. There’s sufficient storage space in the cab for all the bits and bobs you need with you on the job, and all of the fixtures and fittings feel sturdy and practical.
