Drivers and fleet operators using the Renault Kangoo light commercial van can now enjoy improved performance, driveability and potentially, fuel economy, thanks to the latest addition to the range of ECU remaps from global leader, Superchips.
The company recently launched a range of remaps for the larger Renault Trafic but now, the smaller Kangoo van, using the 90PS, 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine, can work harder for less.
The Superchips remap adds an excellent 18bhp at 3425rpm and an even more impressive 37Nm torque at the same engine speed. The shape of the power and torque curves shows that the driveability of the small van will be improved dramatically, with a huge amount of additional torque available throughout the engine’s mid-range operating speed – exactly where a commercial vehicle needs it to haul loads.

In addition to the gains in performance and driveability, operators can also expect to see improvements in fuel economy of up to 7% when compared with a pre-conversion driving style.
The remap can be carried out by owner themselves, using Superchips’ Bluefin device, at a cost of £359 including VAT.
With a Bluefin, users don’t need any mechanical or technical skills, simply plug the Bluefin handset into the diagnostic port (connecting to the vehicle’s Electronic Control Unit) and follow the on-screen instructions.
Alternatively, it can be performed by one of Superchips’ highly skilled nationwide dealers, at a cost of £320 including labour and VAT. This typically takes less than an hour, since the process is carried out using the vehicle’s OBDII (On Board Diagnostics) port. Customers can either wait at the dealer or drop off their car and return later to collect.
The conversion is covered by Superchips’ industry-leading 12-month/30,000-mile warranty*.
