Renault is stepping up its product offensive with the presentation of a new Maxi version of its second-generation Kangoo. With the Maxi, the French firm completes the Kangoo's range that includes the compact three-door and five-door models.

With an overall length of 4.60 metres or 181.1 inches, the Kangoo Van Maxi is 384mm longer than the standard Kangoo Van. All of this extra length has gone to the wheelbase that now measures a whopping 3.1 metres or 122 inches, meaning its 65mm longer than that of the standard Mercedes-Benz S-Class!

Renault offers the Kangoo Maxi with either two or five seats, both fitted as standard with twin sliding rear doors.

The two seater version boasts an extra cubic metre of load volume over and above that of Kangoo Van at 4.6m3 and a payload of 800kg. It can be equipped with a folding passenger seat, allowing the maximum load length at floor level to be extended from 2.1 metres to 2.9 metres with the rear bench folded.

In terms of towing capacity it can handle a braked trailer weight of 1.05 tonnes.

The five-seater Kangoo Van Maxi Crew Van has a maximum load length at floor level of 1.33 metres or 2.2 metres with the rear bench seat folded, and a payload of 740kg.

The Maxi will be offered with the same engines as the rest of the Kangoo range including a 1.5-liter dCi unit with 85HP that returns average combined cycle fuel consumption of 5.3 lt/100km or 53.3mpgUK.

The new Renault Kangoo Maxi will go on sale across Europe from the end of April with further details and pricing to be announced closer to this date.

A Maxi, eh? So I can go horseback riding and rollerblading if I buy one? Does it make one feel "fresh"?

when the word Renault is followed by the word Maxi I think of something like this:

needless to say I was very disappointed after I opened this thread...

I approve of the Kangoo Maxi. It's nice and utilitarian while also being frugal and somewhat comfortable.

Great news! It's the Dacia Logan MCV with sliding rear doors and a face transplant!

:lol:
Other way around though :p

The two door is just in time for the gritty Postman Pat reboot

Yeah, I was hoping for the same thing.
