A new Renault Kangoo is coming to market next year!
If you’re a business owner, you are probably familiar with all the offerings available in the panel van market and the Renault Kangoo is a familiar nameplate. The Kangoo is a rival to other products such as the Volkswagen Caddy and Opel Combo. Perhaps that package that arrived on your doorstep this morning was delivered in a Kangoo.
Now, Renault has partially revealed its next 3rd-generation Kangoo which is due to go on sale in Europe and other markets in 2021. Renault has yet to reveal what will power the new Kangoo, but both petrol and diesel options are likely in conjunction with manual and automatic transmissions, depending on the market. A battery-electric Kangoo is also expected.
The Kangoo is designed to fulfil a variety of requirements, including family and business duties, and it will therefore come to market with 2 main derivatives including the Kangoo (high-spec) and Kangoo Express (entry grade) in either passenger or van variations. A short- and long-wheelbase option for each is also expected.
As shown in the images, the new Kangoo features a bolder and more design, in line with Renault’s current model lineup.
On the inside, the new Kangoo has been modernised and now gains a touchscreen infotainment system and a new multifunction steering wheel. As you can expect, the Kangoo will offer sufficient storage solutions through its cabin.
In terms of practicality, the Kangoo will offer notable loading capacity and Renault’s Easy Side Access and Easy Inside Rack elevate the practicality of the new Kangoo even further. Other nice-to-haves include a digital rearview mirror and trailer swing assist.
As for local availability, it’s still too early for Renault SA to confirm when the new Kangoo will reach South Africa but if we had to hazard a guess, late in 2021 could be a possibility or 2022, which is probably more realistic. Nonetheless, we will let you know when we know, so stay tuned!
