There’s a new additional option for Renault’s five-seat Kangoo Maxi Crew model in the form of a Lifestyle Pack available on the long-wheelbase variant. Power and torque outputs remain unchanged, with the 1.5-litre turbo diesel engine driving through the front wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Priced at $1290, the Lifestyle Pack provides R-LINK enhanced audio and navigation system with 7-inch touchscreen and digital radio, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and rear ventilation outlets for the second row passengers. Outside, the Lifestyle Pack adds a smooth, redesigned, colour-coded front bumper, a painted rear bumper, gloss black door mirrors, and extra tinted privacy glass. Rear side windows are a dealer fit option, priced from $290 plus dealer fitting.
All Kangoos built after June 2016 now come with driver and front passenger side airbags and rear parking sensors for additional safety and security.
“The Kangoo Lifestyle Pack gives customers an added level of comfort and style for a working vehicle that can also double as weekend family transport,” says Lyndon Healey, Renault LCV Model Line Manager.
“Even when configured to carry five adults there is still good load space behind the rear seats, and with the optional rear side windows fitted, the van looks and feels like a family car. In fact, the Kangoo Maxi Crew Lifestyle could earn its keep as a highly efficient taxi, premium airport shuttle or multi-role courier vehicle.
“Based on the platform of the Scenic people mover, the Kangoo drives like a comfortable passenger car, and with the Lifestyle Pack addition to the Maxi Crew, businesses large and small have access to a very versatile workhorse that is 100% claimable as a business expense for ABN holders,” Lyndon says.
Like all Renault LCVs, the Kangoo is equipped with a 3-year/200,000km-factory warranty and 3 years of roadside assistance, plus the first three scheduled services are capped at $349 each. Kangoo requires servicing only once each year, or every 15,000km.
