With the first model launched in 1997, the 2020 Kangoo was the third generation, however, it was based on the Kangoo version launched in 2008.
Available as a standard-length van or a long-wheelbase van, the latter was equipped with an optional second row of seats.
A special model was also offered, a more rugged Kangoo that was good for a bit of mud with a mechanical slip differential, underbody protection and a higher ground clearance.
The regular Kangoo was available in two trim levels, the Business and the Business +.
For 2020, the Kango was available with a choice of three different engines and even an all-electric motor that developed 60 hp.
The van drove well, with a light and responsive steering, however, the ride was rougher than the ones offered by other models on the market.
The cabin offered a decent amount of room, the controls were smartly and intuitively placed, however, it was rather a dull cabin, at least without the 7-inch touchscreen that was available with the R-Link multumedia system.
While the base model offered a DAB radio, electric windows and a height-adjustable steering wheel, the Business + trim level added air-conditioning, rear-parking sensors, electric folding mirrors, 15-inch alloys and body colored bumpers.
