This van is incredibly comfortable, one of the first things you would want to know before buying a van as you are more than likely going to spend most of your working day in it. It is versatile and practical and has been designed to meet the needs of those professionals that need a van to complete their daily tasks. The design of the Renault Kangoo Express Compact Van can be described as expressive and modern. The front is robust and short; the cabin has been built with space in mind and is large. The sense of space is further enhanced by the windscreen that is panoramic and positioned forward. This creates a feeling of space and also allows the cabin to stay bright. Along with this, you will find that there are few blind spots whilst you are driving.
When talking about the inside of the Renault Kangoo Express Compact Van, not enough emphasis can be put on the way that Renault has managed to not only create space but also practicality and comfort. The position of the seating is high thus giving you a fantastic view of the road ahead. Another great feature in the cabin is the way that the gear shift lever has been installed into the dashboard; this eliminates any discomfort when changing gear as it is set at the same level as the driver. In fact, when you change gear it will not feel that different to being in a normal car.
The length of the Renault Kangoo Express Compact Van is 4.21 meters or just under 14 feet. This allows for a spacious cargo area that has a capacity of up to 3.6 cubic meters. The width of the interior is approximately 1.2 meters or almost 4 feet; bear in mind that this measurement comes from wheel arch to wheel arch. Incidentally, if it helps, this van will be able to take a pallet that is a standard Euro size.
When looking at the versatility of the Renault Kangoo Express Compact Van, you have the option to fold the passenger seat down, this in turn, will increase the cubic meter space you have and is perfect if you wish to load long items such as poles or ladders. The type of business this van can be used for is endless. If you are in the business of attending to emergencies or need a temperature controlled environment then this van will do the job. It goes without saying that if you are a delivery person or business the Kangoo Express Compact van will handle you needs without a problem.
The engine is an important factor, especially if you are someone that is constantly on the run through the day and need a little bit of power to get you about. You can choose from 3 diesel engines all at 1.5 liters in size. The beauty of these is that although the size is the same you can have break horse power that ranges from 70 to 105. There are also 2 petrol engines available at your disposal. One which is 1.68V and gives you 90bhp and the other which is 1.6 16V and gives you 105bhp. Fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are important these days. You can expect to achieve around 5.2 liters to 100km or 1.1 gallons to 62 miles. Impressive statistics indeed! CO2 emissions with the Renault Kangoo Express Compact Van are expected to be about 137g to a kilometer or 0.6 of a mile, also an impressive statistic. This is more than well within the restrictions that have been put in place in many countries across the world.
Given the overall size of the Renault Kangoo Express Compact Van, you will not find a problem parking, especially when you are working within a busy city. Parking is a massive issue for many people that are in the business of earning an income by using a van. The last thing you need is to be wasting time finding a suitable place to park, this costs you money. The word "compact" has been used in this model of van for a reason; it is not because of the space inside, it is because it can easily be maneuvered into a parking space that most other van users would not trust themselves with.
