Not all commercial enterprises require medium-sized commercial vans like the Toyota HiAce or Hyundai iLoad with 2.5-3.5 tonne GVM capacity. That's why there's a healthy market for under-2.5 tonne GVM versions tailored to suit small to medium-sized businesses and fleets.

The Renault Kangoo has traditionally been a strong seller in this segment and its latest MY2017 model has the sales-leading Volkswagen Caddy in its cross-hairs, with a new high-efficiency turbocharged petrol engine and seven-speed dual-clutch auto combination providing increased power and torque with reduced fuel consumption, emissions and running costs.
