Renault Koleos is the embodiment of Renault’s design philosophy ‘Emotion in Motion’. Laurens van den Acker, Renault Head of Design says: “Our challenge was to imagine an SUV that was elegant, but also modern and dynamic. We accentuated taut, powerful, horizontal lines, muscular haunches and a high ground clearance.” His passion and dedication has been rewarded by being named ‘2016 Designer of the Year’. You can see why.

The Renault Koleos packs a punch under the bonnet. The Koleos’ 2.5L naturally aspirated multipoint fuel injection engine generates 126kW at 6,000rpm and 226Nm of torque.

The Koleos provides a range of driving options so you can confidently conquer mountains and cities. The Life and Zen variants are available in 4x2 (front wheel drive) while the Intens variant comes in both options, either 4x2 or 4x4.
The new X-Tronic automatic transmission offers fluid, responsive driving without interruption of torque. X-Tronic adjusts continuously while maintaining optimal engine speed and can also simulate gear shifts, producing even more powerful acceleration. A wider gear ratio delivers excellent fuel economy, lower CO2 emissions, quieter driving at low speeds and stronger acceleration at high revolutions.
Safety is an essential cornerstone at Renault, and the Koleos is packed full of innovative features designed to keep you safe on the road.
Every Koleos in the range includes Advanced Emergency Braking. If a vehicle suddenly slows down in front of you, a forward collision warning light and tone alerts you. Simultaneously, the vehicle is actively preparing for emergency braking by bringing the brake pads and discs closer together for maximum braking power in the minimum response time. If you don’t react and step on the brakes, the car will activate braking for you.
The Renault Koleos protects occupants with multistage, variable force deployment airbags.
Keep track of your driving and vehicle conditions at all times via the digital dashboard.
The innovations found in the Renault Koleos will make your driving experience not only simpler and safer, but more enjoyable.
The Koleos range features Apple Carplay® and Android Auto® for a better experience. It’s a ’capacitive’ touchscreen, which means it’s easy to use. Simply drag, pinch, or swipe to navigate the same way you would on a tablet or smart phone.
To open the boot, either use your remote key card or place your foot underneath the rear bumper. Sensors will open the motorised tailgate automatically, revealing 458 litres of luggage space in seconds.

The parking assistance system measures the parking space with its sensors (whether parallel, perpendicular, or angled) and defines the parking trajectory. Then it takes over the wheel and steers itself while the driver controls the speed and braking. It can also help to exit parallel parking spots.
Available on Intens
Features above the X-Trail include heated and folding mirrors, cornering headlights, boot cargo cover, dual-zone air-conditioning, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, eight- speaker audio, 17-inch alloys, full-size spare wheel and a long warranty.
Renault's Koleos doesn't quite know what it is. This second-generation SUV from the French giant is also the second one built largely around the Nissan X-Trail, taking much of its mechanicals. The French flair, a key purchasing decision for many Renault owners, must come from the design, ride and handling, right?
Renault’s biggest-selling model in Australia, the Koleos shares a chassis, powertrains and spacious interior with the Nissan X-Trail, but is more attractively styled inside and out. It is available with petrol or diesel engines and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. It’s also well-equipped, with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone pairing and autonomous emergency braking, that's now standard across the range.
The Koleos convincingly ticks all of the basics, in particular space and comfort.
Renault’s best-selling model offers good value to go with plenty of interior space, but there’s much room for improvement in the way the Koleos Life drives.
Renault Koleos buyers can now finally decide between petrol or diesel.
FROM a brand steeped in history, with a heritage that dates back to 1898, comes an SUV worthy of such a pedigree.
