If you liked the original, then you’ll love the New Kangoo.
The new Renault Kangoo
Aimed at those seeking a smart, functional vehicle which is at the same time comfortable, with its innovative optional two-in-one roof bar system, New Kangoo is the very epitome of a fun, multi-use car. This easy to use system needs no tools to convert the roof bars into a luggage rack which can bear a load of up to 80kg.

With prices starting at 15,975 euros, the New Kangoo represents excellent value

Guaza - 09.05.2008 - The two trim levels, Authentique and Expression, offer a choice of four engines designed for fuel economy and respect for the environment, three of which run on diesel. Two of these have been awarded the Renault Eco2 badge.


The Authentique is practical. It includes a 60:40 split-fold rear bench, a height-adjustable steering wheel and front seat belts. New Kangoo offers six possible seat configurations, each suited to a different kind of load. The Authentique also comes with dark upholstery, medium tropical grey door panels, and a carpeted luggage compartment.


The Expression concen­trates on comfort with a height adjustable driver’s seat and electric front win­dows. The rear-seat vents add an extra touch of com­fort, while the door panels sport a fabric insert which is colour-coordinated with the upholstery. The ventilation control and central console are iridescent dark charcoal.


An optional feature is the twin-section pop-up glass sunroof above the front seats, together with a fixed glass roof above the rear seats. Many of Kangoo’s features have been upgraded and what is most striking is its interior space – 18cm longer than its predecessor, it can comfortably accommodate five adults with plenty of legroom in the rear plus extra elbow room in the front as the aircraft-style handbrake frees up lots of space. All controls are close to hand and the electric window controls are now located on the door armrests.  The redesigned dashboard has displays shaded by prominent cowlings making them easily legible in bright sunlight. The height of the driver’s seat can be adjusted by up to 20mm, there is a footrest for the driver and the redesigned seats provide excellent support and comfort while the efficient air conditioning system keeps you cool. For easy access to the rear, the two sliding side doors open to a width of 635mm and an optional feature is electric windows that slip entirely out of sight into the sliding side doors.


New Kangoo is equipped with ABS, Emergency Brake Assist, MSR, driver seat and front-passenger airbags, and two child seat anchor points on the rear bench. Four disc brakes, 15-inch wheels, and its variable power steering and extra stability make this an easy town or country drive whether fully or partially loaded. With prices starting at 15,975 euros, the New Kangoo represents excellent value. For more information, contact Comercial Igara in Guaza, Tenerife on 902 020 044.
