Interior and equipment

Electric windows and electrically adjustable exterior mirrors are fitted, as is a 12V power point.

Stowage facilities for all the items drivers carry around include a lidded but not lockable glove box, plus bins in both doors, each with a moulding to hold a bottle of water. You’ll find two cup holders between the seats, adjacent in our case to a deep, lidded, optional storage box.

The driver’s seat is height-adjustable as is the steering wheel. It plays host to remote controls for the radio, and our wheel featured optional leather trim.

Our Renault boasted an optional R-Link multimedia system with a 7in touchscreen. TomTom Live satellite navigation, voice control, a CD player, USB and aux-in sockets, and Bluetooth connectivity are among other features.

Further options installed included air-conditioning with the aforementioned heat pump and a Tech Pack embracing rear parking sensors, cruise control and front fog lights.  

With disc brakes fitted front and rear, the Kangoo Z.E. 33 comes with various onboard safety systems just like its diesel counterpart. The line-up includes ABS, electronic stability control, electronic brakeforce distribution and hill-start assist.

Included in the deal is RAID – Renault Anti Intruder Device – which locks the doors at speeds above around 6mph, and a driver’s airbag also comes as standard.

The Kangoo Z.E. 33 sits on 15in steel wheels, shod in our case with Michelin Energy Saver 195/65 R15 tyres. The wheels are decorated with plastic trim.
