The French manufacturer intends to present the third generation of a compact van at the beginning of next year.
Became known the first details about the model Renault Kangoo next generation. In early spring, competing models from the PSA group – Citroen Berlingo, Peugeot Rifter and Opel Combo – were introduced. In the fight against them, the out-of-date Kangoo, which turned 10 in January of this year, has little chance.
So, for example, it became known that the production of Kangoo of the current generation will continue until July 2018, thus, the warehouse stocks of the van should last until the end of the year. In January of the same year, 2019, the model will be replaced by a generation.
It is assumed that in the autumn the passenger version will be presented at the Paris Motor Show. The prototype of the new Renault Kangoo is the concept of Frendzy, presented at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2011.
A new generation model, like Scenic, Espace and others, will use the CMF / C-D platform. The car will have a box-like silhouette – a forced measure providing the possibility of loading Euro pallets, but Kangoo, which moves against the door, will probably be lost.
The composition of the power range Renault Kangoo III will include a gasoline turbo engine 1.3 TCe 115-140 hp. and turbodiesel 1.5 dCi with a power of 85-115 hp. with the technology of active emission control based on a selective catalytic converter (SCR) to reduce emissions of harmful substances. The engines will be combined with mechanical and robotic EDC gearboxes with dual clutch. There will also be a version with a soft hybrid system. The new Kangoo, like the current model, will be offered in a standard and extended version, in a 5- and 7-seat version.
In the list of the newest Renault innovations, an updated version of the Kadjar crossover.
