Following the Renault Express and Kangoo Van vans, a third-generation passenger compact van has been declassified, which is also produced at the French plant in Maubeuge and will also enter the European market in June. For the “simple” Kangoo, there are two engines that meet the Euro 6D Full eco-standard: a 1.3 TCe gasoline turbo four (100 HP and 200 Nm, 130 HP and 240 Nm) and a 1.5 Blue dCi diesel (75 HP and 230 Nm, 95 HP and 260 Nm, 115 HP and 270 Nm). All “heels” will be available with front-wheel drive and six-speed “mechanics”, and for the 95, 115 and 130 horsepower versions, a seven-band EDC “robot” is possible.
Renault has no doubts that the “athletic” Kangoo in Europe will again enter the top three segment leaders, as it “took a step away” from the commuter, coming close to cars. Dimensions: 4486? 1919? 1838 mm, between the axles – 2716, ground clearance – 164 mm. The wheels in the photo are 17-inch.
The fastest was the Kangoo with a 115-horsepower diesel engine, which accelerates to a hundred in 12 seconds. Others require 12.8–19.2. The maximum speed is higher for a 130-strong one: 183 km / h against 164-175. The most economical one is diesel, because it consumes 5.4–5.6 l / 100 km according to the WLTP cycle.
The fabric salon has five seats. With the seats folded down (the front ones are heated), the trunk volume grows from 775 to 3500 liters (plus 49 liters compartments for small items). A seven-inch digital tidy will appear by the end of the year, but for now analog scales are supplemented by a 4.2-inch screen. The Easy Link media center is equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen. Climate control – dual-zone.

Among other things, the “third” Kangoo got LED headlights and lights, sliding rear doors on both sides, roof rails with a load of up to 80 kg, nine body colors and even a built-in ramp for wheelchair users. Easy Link media system supports voice control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The simplified Radio Connect R & Go media center also comes with an eight-inch display. There are five USB ports, four 12 volt sockets, induction charging with a smartphone holder. The driver is assisted by 14 security systems, including auto braking and adaptive cruise control.
