New Renault Kangoo details announced

Renault has released details of its all-new Kangoo MPV.

There are four engines to choose from: 1.6-litre petrol units with either 89- or 104bhp and 1.5-litre diesels in 67- or 85bhp form.

A five-speed manual gearbox is standard on all but the higher-powered diesel, which has a six-speed manual. A four-speed automatic gearbox is an option for the higher-powered petrol.

The new Kangoo is bigger than the model it replaces and the cabin now features a 'Flat Floor' system, where the rear-seat base slides forward into the footwell while the seat back folds down to give a large, flat load area.

In-cabin storage includes underfloor spaces, an overhead shelf, aviaton-style lockers and a range of cubbyholes that add up to 77 litres of load space.

Entry-level Extreme trim includes front airbags, remote central locking and an MP3 input socket. Upgrading to Expression adds a better stereo system, body-coloured bumpers and door mirrors, electric folding door mirrors, front foglights, ISOFIX child seat fixing points and extra storage areas.

Options include curtain airbags, alloy wheels, stability control, electric rear windows and satellite-navigation.

Prices start at 11,200 and rise to 14,050. The new Kangoo is available to order now, with deliveries expected to start from early June.
