Renault Kangoo second-gen facelift

In all the fracas surrounding the 2013 Geneva show, we missed telling you about this – the facelifted second-gen Renault Kangoo, which made its debut at the prestigious event in March. The carmaker has now released a whole sea of photos to accompany our story.

So what’s new? For a start, there’s Renault’s current family face with a more prominent diamond badge and new almond-shaped headlamps. The front bumper, front wings and bonnet have been reshaped, and those tail lamps are new, too. Inside, there’s a new steering wheel, center console and gloss black finish, amongst others.

The range comprises leisure activity vehicle (in Kangoo and Grand Kangoo lengths), panel van (in Compact, Express and Maxi lengths) and ZE versions. The LAV gets two new trim levels – Extrem adds goodies such as roof rails, a two-tone front bumper, an R-Line touch-screen infotainment system, body decals, ESC and 15-inch gloss black alloys, while Business gives you wing mirrors and bumpers in grainy black, as well as black plastic-trimmed interior elements for  business usage and durability.

A broad range of powerplants can be had, from a 1.5 litre Energy dCi 75 to a 1.2 litre Energy TCe 115. Renault says the 1.5 litre Energy dCi 75 and 90 units are capable of returning a fuel economy of 4.3 litres per 100 km and emitting 112 grams of CO2 per km on the NEDC combined cycle.
