The Kangoo looks like better value for money than previously because of the reasonable smattering of standard kit, although list prices are still on the high side. What’s more, the Renault is unlikely to hold on to its value that well. Servicing and insurance costs should be fairly low, however, while fuel economy is good, particularly on the frugal 1.5 diesel model, and company car tax ratings are reasonable on most versions.
Renault Kangoo MPV quality & reliability
The Kangoo is well put together using durable, if not high quality, materials and proven mechanicals, so there’s no need to fear for its reliability. The dash feels solid although it could do with a little more styling flair.
Renault Kangoo MPV safety & security
All Kangoos have twin front airbags and anti-lock brakes as standard, while side ‘bags cost extra. Traction control isn’t available even as an option. Remote central locking and an immobiliser are fitted to all models, but that’s about it for security provision: there are no deadlocks and an alarm is optional.
