Renault Kangoo van dimensions (1998-2009)

Unlike the equivalent Fiat Doblo Cargo, Kangoo choice is restricted by the absence of a high-roof version, so some buyers may be put off, though the optional folding passenger seat means you can store longer items lengthways.

There’s also a wide opening to the boot and the wheel arches are easily wide enough apart to accommodate a Euro-pallet.

The sliding side-door is great for ease of access, especially when parked on the street. There is sufficient headroom in the cabin and the overhead shelf is handy for storing paperwork or lighter items of luggage.

Kangoo’s load volume is decent, swallowing 2750 litres thanks to the broad 1672mm load width.

It’s worth noting that Kangoo is shorter than the Citroen Berlingo and Fiat Doblo, and the load length is not as deep, either.

Renault Kangoo (98-09) payload, weight & towing

3.5 out of 5 3.5

Standard Kangoo’s maximum payload ranges from 525-625kg, which is commendable but around 100 kilos less than the base model Doblo.

Nevertheless for those needing to lug heavier loads, Kangoo SL19 and Heavy Duty models have a greater payload.
