• Well, what do you know: a recent car that I have had real experience with! My sister-in-law in France has owned the passenger version of the Kangoo for several years. Diesel (due to misguided French tax laws) with a 5-speed. I have driven it many times, both around town and on longer trips. Remarkably spacious, nice upright seating, lots of power, not too many reminders that it is an oil-burner (cuz I hate diesels, in general). Much larger that you might think from the photos. Very easy access, thanks to two sliding side doors. Lots of cargo room. Being a tall vehicle, you might not want to be trying to do four wheel drifts with it, but is really nice to drive.

    So, how did this thing get into the US and get registered?

  • I recall reading an interview with Gordon Murray some years ago, think it was a little after the McLaren F1 had hit the streets and he was still doing design work on their F1 team, and he noted that his daily-driver was a Renault Kangoo.
