Western Suburbs Weekly - - Drive Way -

FOR just a bit more than $1000, your Re­nault Kan­goo can be fit­ted with a just-launched Life­style Pack that adds more class and ver­sa­til­ity to the pop­u­lar van.

Spe­cially de­signed for the long wheel­base five-seat Kan­goo Maxi Crew, the pack pro­vides R-Link en­hanced au­dio and nav­i­ga­tion sys­tem with 7inch touch­screen and dig­i­tal ra­dio, leather-wrapped steer­ing wheel, and ven­ti­la­tion for the sec­ond row pas­sen­gers.

Out­side, it adds a smooth, re­designed, colour-coded front bumper, a painted rear bumper, gloss black door mir­rors, and ex­tra tinted glass.

Rear side windows are a dealer fit op­tion, pro­vid­ing a light and airy feel for the whole ve­hi­cle, and cost from $290 plus dealer fit­ting.

The Life­style Pack is $1290 and Re­nault's Lyn­don Healey says the new level of com­fort and style for a work­ing ve­hi­cle lets it dou­ble as week­end fam­ily trans­port.

“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,” he said.

“In fact, it could earn its keep as a highly ef­fi­cient taxi, pre­mium air­port shut­tle or multi-role courier ve­hi­cle.”

The Kan­goo Maxi Crew has a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel en­gine, that drives the front wheels through a slick shift­ing 6speed man­ual gear­box.

All Kan­goos built after June now have driver and front pas­sen­ger side airbags and rear park­ing sen­sor.

The Kan­goo is built on the plat­form of the Scenic peo­ple mover, so it drives like a pas­sen­ger car, and with the Life­style Pack ad­di­tion, busi­nesses have ac­cess to a ver­sa­tile work­horse that is 100 per cent claimable as a busi­ness ex­pense for ABN hold­ers.

A life­style pack trans­forms the Kan­goo van.
