Comments

The Kangoo performs quite impressively for Clean Air, even with regard to CO and NH3 emissions, control of which is often challenging for small petrol engines. In general, the Renault scores well for all pollutants in all tests. Even though it is equipped with a GPF, performance could be further improved by even greater control of particle number. Overall, the Renault demonstrates that the means for efficient and robust exhaust aftertreatment are available and can be found in new vehicles.

The Kangoo is a relatively big car with a high capacity to transport goods. Its fuel consumption of up to 9.0 l/100 km in the BAB130 highway cycle is high but not surprising, given the body form and assumed high aerodynamic drag. With 7 l/100 km in the WLTC+ cold test, the values are close to the declared ones. The overall result in the Energy Efficiency Index is a modest 3.4 out of 10.

Comments

The Greenhouse Gas Index is based on a Well-to-Wheel+ approach, meaning that the greenhouse gas emissions related to the supply of the energy are added to the tailpipe emissions. The test vehicle emits about 160 g CO2/km in the WLTC+ tests and almost 200 g CO2/km in the BAB130 highway test. With upstream emissions on top, that leads to zero points in highway driving and an overall score of just 1.6 out of 10 for greenhouse gases. On the positive side, the emissions of N2O and CH4 are barely measurable and again proof of an excellent exhaust aftertreatment.

Our verdict

The Renault Kangoo starts with the disadvantage of a non-aerodynamic body. Like other vehicles tested in 2022, its performance in the greenhouse gases index is the poorest of the three areas of assessment. Measurements for energy efficiency and CO2 emissions at the tailpipe are just slightly above the officially reported values. Pollutants are managed quite well, helping the car to boost its overall performance. Overall, the Kangoo scores a creditable 2½ stars out of 5.
