New Renault Koleos Design

Senior vice-president of corporate design at Renault - Laurens van den Acker, explained: “The new Koleos completes the styling renaissance of the Renault range that began with the new Clio in 2012. As a designer, the challenge was to imagine an SUV that was not only elegant, but also modern and dynamic. To achieve this, we didn’t seek to dilute the traits that are traditionally associated with SUVs. Instead, we accentuated the segment’s familiar cues thanks to taut, powerful, horizontal lines, muscular haunches and high ground clearance.  As a result, the Koleos exudes an inner strength. It is every inch an SUV and every inch a Renault.”


New Renault Koleos Spec

The Engine selection consists of 2 diesel engines and 2 petrol, the least powerful starting at 128bhp up to the most powerful at 172bhp, with either a six-speed manual gearbox or X-Tronic CVT transmission. The all-wheel drive system is easy to use, the driver activating a switch on the dashboard to select front- or four-wheel drive.

The 4WD mode automatically splits the torque between the front and rear of the axis. The third mode called 4WD LOCK allows the driver to select permanent all-wheel drive at slow speeds in low-grip conditions.

The Koleos is set apart from the opposition by a number of chrome embellishments, including strips that run from the headlights along the full length of the wings. It also has one of the longest wheelbases in the class, with an unusually short front overhang.
