Pros & cons

Overview

The original Kangoo built up a reputation as a practical, back-to-basics, cheap to run family car. Its replacement continues with those values but adds some much needed refinement and quality to the package. As is obvious by the boxy looks, it’s derived from a small van, but crucially this Kangoo is based on the 2009 Scenic, which means the handling and ride are far more sophisticated than before.

It’s hugely spacious inside with seemingly endless storage and plenty of passenger room for both those in the front and the back. Then there’s the twin sliding side doors which make access easy, especially in narrow spaces. But while it’s comfortable and versatile, the Kangoo is somewhat let down by a rather cheap and plasticky interior. However, affordable prices and low running costs mean it still has plenty of appeal.
