The 18th L’Automobile & L’Entreprise Trophies ceremony on Monday, July 1, saw New Renault Kangoo scoop the LCV prize at the French magazine’s ‘L’Automobile et L’Entreprise” awards. The jury – which comprised representatives of the media, members of L’Automobile & L’Entreprise’s editorial staff and fleet operators – notably underlined New Kangoo’s TCO, its quality and the professionalism of Renault’s sales network, including the brand’s Renault Pro+ centres.
Renault, which has been Europe’s number one LCV manufacturer since 1998, refreshed its Kangoo range in the first half of 2013. The model’s front-end styling now embodies Renault’s new styling identity, with a different look to distinguish the passenger car, van and Z.E. versions. Its more robust stance marks an unmistakable step forward in terms of perceived quality, while the New Kangoo range places great emphasis on new technologies, with available features now including the connected Renault R-Link multimedia system, a reversing camera and the Extended Grip function.
In addition to the zero-emission*, all-electric Z.E. version, Renault Kangoo can also be ordered with one of several strong, fuel-efficient engines, including three which return fuel consumption of as low as just 4,3 l/100km.
A van version with three front seats is now available for all three length options, which means that Kangoo Compact is the only van with a carrying capacity of less than 2.8 cubic metres to propose this configuration.
