Updates announced for revised, cheaper Renault Kangoo

A revised version of the Renault Kangoo small van is now on sale, with lower prices and improved specification as well as some minor styling enhancements.

Now priced from £20,250 (+ VAT) the Renault Kangoo is less expensive than before, while the plug-in Renault Kangoo E-Tech is now available below £30,000 for the first time, priced at £29,850 (+VAT) for the entry-level model.

As it was previously, the Renault Kangoo is offered in lengths and two trim levels, with a crew van option on the longer body.

Externally not much has changed other than a new grille and different wheel designs, while inside it retains its three-seater layout with a folding middle backrest that doubles up as worktable.

The shorter ML model has 3.3 cubic metres of load space and the longer LL comes with 4.2 cubic metres, while payloads range from 796kg to 975kg. While it’s a heavier van, the longer model has the higher payload due to heavier duty rear suspension.

Internal combustion models are a 1.2 TCe turbo petrol model with 100PS or a choice of 95 or 115PS 1.5 diesels.

The Renault Kangoo E-Tech comes with a 45kWh battery and has a WLTP range of up to 186 miles and a payload of 608Kg to724Kg.

The new specification package includes a 8.0-inch touchscreen, automatic headlights and wipers, DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, air conditioning, heated and electrically-adjustable door mirrors, and a height-adjustable driver’s seat on all models. The plusher ‘Extra’ trim adds LED lights, keyless entry, side sensors, blind spot monitoring and colour-coded trim.

What's a good short term van purchase?

I am aiming to buy a car again soon. However I will shortly be moving house and this is likely to be a prolonged move. I have wondered about buying an older panel van in the short term? Due to my health it would need to be an automatic and easy to handle. I would also want it to hold its value as I would be trading it in against a more modern, but not new, SUV.
The good news here is that if you buy an inexpensive van you won't find it hard to sell on, and are unlikely to lose much on it. If you want an automatic, then the best options at that prices are the 2007-2014 Vauxhall Vivaro/Renault Trafic or the 2004-2011 Mercedes-Benz Vito, both of which offer a durable automatic transmission and inexpensive second-hand prices.
