Renault Kangoo Maxi EDC brings any automatic choice to diesel power | TRANSPORT NEWS

Kangoo Maxi diesel is now available with a six-speed automatic Efficient Dual Clutch (EDC) transmission.

The Kangoo Maxi EDC has a three year/200,000km factory warranty and three-year Roadside Assistance. Service intervals are 12 months or every 15,000km, whichever comes first and Renault’s Capped Price Servicing programme provides for low ownership costs with the first three scheduled services fixed at just $349 at any of our 55 Authorised Renault Dealers, nationwide.

The two-pedal turbo diesel Kangoo Maxi uses a development of the DC4 six-speed Efficient Dual Clutch automated transmission, the same unit fitted to the 1.2 litre petrol Kangoo that was launched in Australia in February this year. This transmission has been praised for its smooth and engaging driving qualities.

The six-speed EDC is an automated dry dual clutch transmission. The ideal gear for any driving condition is selected automatically by an electronic control unit. Gearshift control is of the ‘P-R-N-D’ type and includes an ‘up/down’ ‘manual’ shift mode. A push forward on the gear lever directs the transmission to downshift, with a pull backwards to upshift.

The Renault Kangoo Maxi diesel EDC comes to market at a Manufacturer’s List Price of $29,990, excluding dealer delivery and statutory charges.
