Mild facelift for Renault's practical Kangoo people-hauler
27 August 2005

Renault’s utilitarian people-mover, the Kangoo, is to receive a number of changes for the 2006 model year. New exterior colours and interior trims will be available, as well as new options packages and a new range of Euro IV-compliant engines. Prices remain relatively unchanged, with the new range starting at £9725, £30 more than the outgoing base model.

Renault has also created four new options packs, which can save customers up to £115 over adding the options individually. Costing between £100 and £950, these options packs add a range of extras such as air conditioning, electrically operated and heated door mirrors, on-board trip computer and electric panoramic sunroof.

The 1.2-litre and 1.6-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines are now Euro IV compliant. Prices start at £9725 for the base 75bhp Authentique 1.2-litre, rising to £11,825 for the range-topping Expression 1.6-litre. The chunky four -wheel drive Kangoo Trekka and the 80bhp Authentique 1.5 dCi have been dropped from the range.

Our Verdict

Jaguar XK

A smooth, svelte all-rounder which can equally cosset and thrill

    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best

    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq

    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
