The Renault Kangoo is a multispace vehicle sold as a panel van and a passenger car.
It was launched in 1997 as a replacement for the Renault Express, and was inspired by similar models like the Berlingo/Ranch.
The first series sold well, so, in early 2008, Renault presented a new series with a larger body.
The present series Kangoo can be equipped with petrol or diesel engines developing up to 106 HP.
A shorter version, 3.87 metres long, was added in 2009.
The van is designed to drive like a car and boasts a spacious cab reminiscent of many MPVs.
As with other multispace vehicles, the cargo compartment is not large, but nevertheless big enough to install Syncro van racking modules like drawers, transparent containers, and shelves with dividers or plastic containers. The Kangoo can also be equipped with a roof rack and a wide range of other accessories.
Syncro underfloor drawers are particularly popular. By fitting a raised floor, the Kangoo can be equipped with between 3 and 6 drawers on ball-bearing runners. This solution takes up only 23 cm of vertical space and leaves the entire floor free to carry cargo of install racking.
Protecting your van’s bodywork is a top priority for Syncro System. Even in the case of this Kangoo mini-workshop, the Syncro team fitted a floor liner in 12 mm thick marble-look plywood, painted steel bodywork liners and, on the right, a wheel arch liner in steel and marble-look plywood.
The compact racking system on the left of the van starts with a floor-level compartment with a lift-up door. Over this are three metal drawers mounted on ball-bearing runners and two shelves with non-slip mats and space dividers. The side of the racking nearest the rear doors is fitted with a vertical cabinet with six transparent plastic containers – an extremely practical storage solution as it lets you see instantly what’s inside. These containers incorporate an automatic latch mechanism and are virtually indestructible thanks to the tough material (PMMA) from which they are made.
The van’s bulkhead is fitted with two cargo bars with lashing straps, while a compact oilless compressor stands on the right wheel arch.
In this solution, the Kangoo has been equipped with one column of racking on the left, leaving the rest of the floor free.
The floor is protected by a 12 mm thick, marble-look, plywood floor liner with steel edges and recessed cups for the cargo rings.
The racking stands on a floor-level compartment enclosed by a lift-and-rotate door. Over this are two pull-out trays with removable component cases, two steel drawers on telescopic, ball-bearing runners and two shelves with internal space dividers.
This racking system is ideal for the customer’s needs and for the dimensions of the van. Even the small Kangoo can be equipped with all the shelves, containers and accessories needed to become an efficient mobile workshop.
The Kangoo seen here uses underfloor drawers to maximise available storage space. Two large drawers on ball-bearing runners are accessible from the rear of the van, with another installed at the side door. These drawer units are covered by a raised floor in 12 mm thick marble-look plywood which forms a fully usable load surface. The racking configuration on the left of the van consists of two floor-level compartments and two shelves, all enclosed by lift-and-rotate doors. Another shelf is home to a professional tool case in ABS and aluminium. The system is completed by a series of useful accessories: a first aid case, a handwash kit with a plastic water tank, soap dispenser and paper roll holder, an LED ceiling light for illuminating the inside of the van and a number of milled aluminium rails for use with cargo retaining straps.
To allow users to carry material and equipment on the roofs of their vans, Syncro System offers a wide range of roof bars, roof racks and ladder racks for the Kangoo.
All types of Syncro roof rack are made from aluminium and stainless steel and incorporate Syncro’s exclusive ULTRASILENT profile for dramatically less noise and vibration on the road.
