Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 31 - 53 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Service intervals are well spaced and reasonably priced, while diesel engines offer outstanding value for money. Insurance groups are low (group for or five), which is average for this class.

The Kangoo is adequate when it comes to green issues, with an average of 161g/km CO2 across the model line-up. The 1.5 dCi engine is the greenest. It emits 140g/km of CO2 and returns 53mpg.

The Kangoo has the ruggedness you’d expect from a van – the mechanicals stand up to heavy punishment and it feels solidly built. The plastic matt finish throughout the cabin increases resilience – as scuffs and scratches will not show up so easily – but the interior trim lacks the quality you’d expect from a passenger car. Although it is unlikely to let you down, there have been some electrical problems reported.
