New Kangoo to finally arrive this autumn

Renault has released further details of a long-awaited new van model set to be available in the UK later this year.

The revamped Kangoo will be available in two wheelbases and a choice of up to three trim levels after the van maker overhauled the popular model.

The company said pricing and equipment will be released in July 2008, with ordering open in October.

Renault said: “Retaining all of the previous version’s inimitable character, but adding even greater comfort, modernity, quality and versatility, the new Kangoo van goes further than ever before to meet the needs of its users.”

The new Kangoo will also feature a short and robust front end design and built-in Bluetooth technology.

Even in its final production year, Renault’s last version of the model bagged the best light van title at the 2008 Professional Van and Light Truck Magazine Awards.

Since its launch, the model has proved massively popular with van insurance customers, selling more than 1.4 million units worldwide.ADNFCR-1036-ID-18602195-ADNFCR
