The Renault Kangoo has doubled down on its leadership of the small van sector after winning ‘Best Small Van’ for the second consecutive year and ‘Best Small Electric Van’ at the What Car? Van and Commercial Vehicle Awards 2024.
The duo of awards recognises the Kangoo as the champion of the small light commercial vehicle sector, providing companies and individuals with all they need whether they are considering a traditionally-powered van or a pure-electric version.
On awarding the latest-generation of the Renault Kangoo, Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car, said:
“Whether you want combustion or electric power, the Renault Kangoo goes about the business of being a small van brilliantly. It’s spacious for cargo, comfortable for drivers, and one of the best vans to drive."
Kangoo is available in Advance and Extra trim levels, offering a choice of efficient petrol, diesel or 100% electric powertrains, plus short-, long-wheelbase and crew van formats. It offers up to 20 advanced driver assistance systems, with the standard specification including the EASY LINK infotainment system with 8 inch touchscreen, DAB radio with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, 4.2-inch colour TFT driver information display, automatic headlights and rain sensitive front wipers, smartphone integration with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, manual air conditioning, heated and electrically-adjustable door mirrors, and a height adjustable driver’s seat.
Guillaume Sicard, Country Head UK & Managing Director Renault Brand UK, said:
“Kangoo is a huge success story and for it to win the ‘Best Small Van’ for the second consecutive year proves how untouchable it is in its fiercely competitive sector. With increasing numbers of business users switching to electric light commercial vehicles, the addition of the ‘Best Small Electric Van’ award also underlines that Kangoo is the number one choice for small van buyers regardless of their chosen powertrain.”
