Spacious inside, sliding rear doors, practical


Based on a van, uninspiring performance, dull to drive, basic interior

Renault Kangoo rivals

Written by David Ross on

Simple, functional and spacious - the Renault Kangoo appeals to family buyers who are looking for straightforward practicality above anything else. Admittedly, the obvious van-like looks won't endear the Kangoo to everyone, but buyers looking for a value-for-money holdall will be smitten. It's perfect if you're self-employed too, taking on a huge load capacity at the fold of a seat and converting back just as easily to revert to a spacious family car.

The sliding rear doors and ample headroom are great for ease of access, and although the engines are less than rip-roaring, this is unlikely to be high on a people carrier buyer’s priority.
