Renault Kangoo Receives A Makeover

Renault Kangoo

Renault Kangoo

Since its most recent revision in 2003, over 7,000 Kangoos have been sold in the UK, making it one of the most popular utility vehicles in the country. Now, to build on its continued appeal, Renault has revised the car in several key areas with enhanced specification, new options and a range of new Euro IV emissions 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.

A Kangoo to suit every taste

As outlined later, although there are a fair few changes to individual models, the Kangoo trim levels remain the same - Authentique, Venture and Expression - with the loss of the 4x4 version, Kangoo Trekka and Authentique 1.5 dCi 80.

Style inside and out

The Renault Kangoo was conceived as a cheeky, fun and practical car with bags of versatility as standard. The company’s designers have opted not to alter this successful recipe, by retaining all of the car’s original character with just a couple of subtle tweaks, such as a new range of body colours and interior trims.

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 outside.

Versatility for living

The Kangoo 2006 is more than just an ideal mode of transport for customers requiring a car with a flexible interior and plenty of interior space. As with all Renaults, it comes comprehensively equipped, with standard specification including: 60:40 split folding rear seat, ABS, electric front windows with one-touch functionality (Venture and above), immobiliser and remote central locking.

Customers wishing to turn their functional Kangoo into a funky, family car loaded with kit can choose from wide range of options: 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).
