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
