Parkers Van Deal of the Week 22/12/14

  • Renault Kangoo ML19 Core DCi 75
  • Priced at just £7,499 plus VAT
  • Saving over £6,000 off list price

Fuel efficiency, a decent load space, and flexible finance options are three key attributes that buyers value when choosing their next van. This Renault Kangoo, from Bristol Street Motors, ticks all three boxes, and is available from just £169.95 plus VAT a month.

Renault’s Kangoo has been a loyal servant for British businesses over the past 18 years and while build quality has often been criticised, Renault says this is now a thing of the past. This statement is backed up by Renault’s impressive four year, 100,000 mile warranty.

The French manufacturer says it greatly improved perceived build quality during last year’s update, with special attention on spot weld finishes, crimping quality on door panels and tightening up body sealant overspill. Soundproofing has been improved too for a quieter driving experience.

In the cab

The high seating position for this size of van combined with the large windscreen means visibility in the front of the van is excellent. There is also a generous amount of storage space in the cab, and the driver benefits from electric front windows, CD player with USB connection, a trip computer and remote control central locking.


Under the bonnet is Renault’s veteran 1.5 dCi engine, which is tuned to 75bhp and 180Nm. While this may not satisfy the needs of the more ‘progressive’ van drivers, it may be worth noting that the combined fuel economy figure stands at 61.4mpg and that higher horsepower versions are available (89bhp and 109bhp) if needed.

Load Area

The ‘ML 19’ denotes that this is the medium wheelbase, low roof with a 1.9 tonne gross vehicle weight. This equates to a 670kg payload, a three cubic metre load volume and just under 1.5 metres of load length. A tubular bulkhead, cargo lining and a nearside side loading door are all included as standard.


This particular deal represents huge value for money. The list price of £13,696 has almost been halved as part of the package from Bristol Street Motors. Click here to view this deal, along with all the other latest Renault Kangoo deals.
