New Renault KOLEOS – Premium all-round Refinement, now with enhanced Styling Cues
With its sturdy and high-end design, its comfort and its outstanding performance, the Renault Koleos has successfully established itself as an International reference in the large SUV segment.
It’s every inch an SUV and every inch a Renault.
The Renault Koleos represents the ‘ne plus ultra’ of Renault’s high-end range, with a very distinctive clientele seeking a supreme driving experience, and stand-out styling. The 3,000 plus Koleos units sold to sate are testimony to its niche positioning.
With its assertive design and sophisticated interior, the New Koleos is as attractive as ever.
Looks are certainly something the Koleos gets right. Up front, the eye-catching C-shaped Daytime Running Lights extends beyond the new LED headlight units to create an even more forceful gaze and at the back, while the new wider LED tail lightsserve to amplify the impression of width and draw attention to the centrally-positioned Renault diamond. These latest design refinement elements further elevate the distinct Koleos styling.
New Renault Koleos is an embodiment of Renault’s new design language with its more alluring styling and strong presence. While the New Koleos line-up has been updated, the features that favourably distinguish it from other SUVs have been retained.
The imposing stance and personality of New Koleos are accentuated by several innovative design features:
A more distinctive front-end
The front-end of the New Koleos features a pronounced front grille, with luxurious chrome insets, extending to the chrome-underlined fog lamps. In the lower part, the bumper boasts an impressive skid plate which accentuates the vehicle’s adventurous stance.
The New Koleos retains its distinctive and striking features like its chrome trim extending horizontally down the whole wing, making the front-end appear longer, with new chrome wing trims. Its C-shaped lighting signature, a strong trait common to all Renault models, gives it a strong and penetrating look. While, the high-end impression is created through its narrower body fitting and sharp lines.
The New LED front and rear lights of the Koleos replicate the full LED lighting signature, that is now instantly distinguishable as part of the new Renault design language, now with dynamic rear indicators intergrated in the new LED rear tail lamps. The eye-catching C-shaped Daytime Running Lights extends beyond the headlight units themselves to create an even more forceful gaze. Dependent on the version, New Koleos is available with Pure Vision Full LED main- and dipped- beam lights.
For significantly enhanced night-time visibility, this technology provides a beam that is 20 percent more powerful than that of halogen headlights.
The permanently-lit tail lights feature Edge Light technology that generates a clear, bright 3D effect visible both close up and from a distance. The wide horizontal rear tail lamps amplify the impression of width (1,840mm) and draw attention to the centrally-positioned Renault diamond logo. The tail lamps wrap over the rear wings to further enhance its solid stance, and the chrome insert set into the lower part of the rear bumper draws ones eye naturally to the contour of the elegant bumper design.
Greater harmony between the front and rear
The rear of the New Koleos has been redesigned, with a skid plate extending higher on the bumper and transverse chrome insets in synergy with the front end. The third stop lamp has been extended while the twin chrome bumper garnish have been retained for a sporty touch.
New Koleos packs all the SUV styling codes associated with the segment, including taut lines that combine a rugged stance with head-turning looks, along with side protective mouldings, and Large-diameter 18” alloy wheels, for a more polished look.
A very stylish interior features creature comforts like customisable LED cabin lighting to complement the mood of the driver and/ or passengers, front cup holders that can be chilled or heated and a sliding centre console for ideal driving position.
In addition to having one of the longest wheelbases in its class, the Koleos’ wheelbase of 2 704mm and overall length of 4 672mm frees up record roominess for all occupants.
Rear passengers benefit from class-topping knee room (289mm) while there is also 464 litres of space in the boot which can grow to an impressive 1 700 litres with the rear seats folded down. Boasting a Euro NCAP five-star rating, all Koleos models come standard with brakes assisted by ABS, EBD, EBA, ESC and Hill Start Assist (HAS). Other key safety features include Blind Spot Warning (BSW), 360˚ Park Assist sensor system (all round sensors) and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), which are standard on the Dynamique grade.
Meticulous attention to detail has been lavished on the finish of the Koleos cabin, including satin chrome inserts on the steering wheel, gear lever and air vents, as well as foamed materials on the dashboard and door trims.
The New Koleos is still generously proportioned and roomy, while key cabin features have been improved to enhance passenger comfort.
New Koleos’ SUV breeding is evident inside the cabin, which combines elegance and occupant protection.
New Renault Koleos is available in two trim levels – Expression and Dynamique, comprehensively spec’d from the base level upwards.
New Koleos is powered by a 2.5 Petrol Engine CVT (4×2), with a power output of 126kW, 233Nm of Torque, CO2 emissions of 188g/100km and combined fuel consumption from 8.1litres/100km.
