Renault has has introduced Euro 6-compliant engines in its Renault Kangoo, Trafic and Master ranges.
By offering Euro 6 engines now, Renault is conforming to legislation change that will be effective from September.
As part of the enhancements, all Euro 6-engined Renault LCVs now come with a Thatcham-approved alarm as standard and many receive more power than their Euro 5 equivalents.
Following the launch of a Euro 6-compliant Kangoo in 2015, the range has been expanded to include more versions than previously available with the Euro 5 engine.
In order to conform to Euro 6 legislation, Renault has reduced the amount of NOx (nitrous oxides) produced by the Renault Kangoo’s engines with the addition of a NOx trap.
All Kangoo Maxi versions will feature the Energy engines, offering fuel economy of up to 62.8mpg and features such as stop-start technology.
The popular standard length Kangoo (ML) will be solely available with Energy engines until the start of 2017, when more engines will be added to the range.
The Trafic welcomes additional versions to its extensive range, Renault increasing the availability of the most popular engines and trim levels.
The Energy dCi 95 engine has been introduced to the Trafic for the first time.
Utilising a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system and Adblue, the Trafic’s range of Euro 6 engines are more powerful than their Euro 5 predecessors by 5hp.
These encompass the single turbo dCi 95 and dCi 120 engines, together with the twin-turbo Energy dCi 125 and Energy dCi 145 engines.
The Euro 6 Master, which boasts engines that are 5-10hp more powerful (depending on version) than their Euro 5 equivalents and use a combination of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system and Adblue®, has been enhanced with the addition of 40 more versions.
Providing a high level of efficiency and performance, the Master’s Euro 6 engines comprise of the single turbo dCi 110, Energy dCi 110 and dCi 130, together with the twin turbo energy dCI 145, Energy dCi 170 (front-wheel drive versions) and Energy dCi 165 (rear-wheel drive applications).
All Euro 6 Renault LCVs feature enhanced security with the standard fitment of an alarm. Worth £150, this alarm allows the Renault LCV range to meet the higher security rating outlined in the new UK insurance criteria applicable to commercial vehicles that came into force at the start of the year.
The full range of Euro 6 Renault LCVs are available to order now. The Kangoo is priced from £14,150, the Trafic costs from £19,325 and the Master starts from £22,270 (all prices exclude VAT).
