RENAULT's flagship SUV, the New Koleos boasts supreme driving comfort and all-round magnificence, distinguishable by -
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.
New Koleos represents the 'ne plus ultra' of Renault's high-end range, with the Senior Vice-President of Corporate Design, Laurens van den Acker's quote aptly encapsulating the essence of this vehicle -
"New Koleos completes the styling renaissance of the Renault range that began with Clio in 2012. As a designer, the challenge was to imagine an SUV that was not only elegant, but also dynamic and modern. To achieve this, instead of diluting the traits traditionally associated with SUVs, we accentuated the segment's familiar cues thanks to taut, powerful, horizontal lines, along with muscular haunches and high ground clearance. New Koleos subsequently exudes an inner strength. It is every inch an SUV and every inch a Renault."
MORE ASSERTIVE STYLING
New Renault Koleos is an embodiment of Renault's new design language with its more assertive styling and stronger presence.
While the new Koleos line has been updated, the features that favourably distinguish it from other SUVs have been retained. "The New Koleos asserts itself more than ever with its high-end look, muscular shoulders and harmonious proportions" (Ken Melville (Design Director for high-end vehicles))
The assertive stance and personality of New Koleos are accentuated by several innovative design features:
The front-end of the New Koleos features a more pronounced front grille, with luxurious chrome insets, extending to the chrome-underlined fog lamps. In the lower part, the bumper has a new and more 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 creases.
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 exhaust pipes 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 New Large-diameter 18" alloy wheels, for a more polished look.
INCREASED ON-BOARD SOPHISTICATION AND COMFORT
Meticulous attention to detail has been lavished on the finish of the New 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.
Meticulous care has been taken to ensure that the interior of the Koleos enables the well-being of passengers.
Whether sitting in the front or rear, all New Koleos' occupants are indulged when it comes to refined travelling comfort.
It is very evident that no compromise has been made between passenger comfort and the model's looks. Its exterior features were designed to deliver the highest standard of travelling comfort for all five occupants.
NEW TECHNOLOGICAL FEATURES
The RenaultKoleos rises to the challenge by offering the best technology which enables increased on-board safety, connectivity and driver ease and pleasure.
New Koleos boasts a comprehensive suite of driver-assistance systems, including Blind Spot Warning and 360 Park Assist .
Model dependent, the New Koleos is equipped with LED Pure Vision headlamps acting as both high and low beam headlights. Daytime running lights give the Koleos a unique look and at night, the technology is 20% more powerful than a standard halogen beam, significantly improving visibility. The rear day and night running lights feature Edge Light Technology which adds a 3D effect for clear and bright light, both from a distance and close up.
The New Koleos also offers a remarkable Full Screen Apple CarPlay system. The R-LINK 2 Sat Nav and Multimedia is offered in 2 screen formats (Model dependent), a 7" horizontal or 8.7" vertical screen. Compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the onscreen Smartphone Replication is now vertical for ease of reading, with a full-screen Apple CarPlay display. The New Koleos features a voice recognition system activated from the steering wheel in order to manage sat nav, phone calls, apps, e-mails and radio.
Both USB portals are now located under the centre console, at the base of the gear lever, for greater convenience.
THE NEW KOLEOS OPTS FOR VERSATILITY
The New Koleos offers real off-road capabilities, safer road-holding and outstanding reliability.
Off-road ability compatible with everyday use is in keeping with the Renault design strategy introduced by Laurens can den Acker in 2010. New Koleos is covered by the 'EXPLORE' design pillar, which stands for robustness and a taste for adventure.
Efficient, easy-to-use 4x4 technology The ALL MODE 4x4-i transmission available for New Koleos features technology that has been proved on millions of Renault's Alliance vehicles worldwide. This all-wheel drive system permanently monitors grip levels to guarantee optimal traction whatever the conditions. Unlike many competitor models, New Koleos continues to feature a control switch that allows drivers to choose the transmission mode. Very easy to use, it is situated to the right of the steering wheel and enables the driver to select one of three modes, namely 2WD, 4WD AUTO or the exclusive 4WS LOCK.
In addition to enhancing New Koleos' off-road ability, ALL MODE 4x4-i transmission delivers more dynamic performance plus greater stability and enhanced safety.
Advanced CVT Transmission X-Tronic automatic transmission was designed to deliver greater driving enjoyment and reduced fuel consumption compared with conventional automatic transmissions. Its benefits range from instant response when accelerating rapidly, to a smooth, quieter ride and optimized fuel consumption at constant speeds.
A global project plus proven durability. Within development phase, New Renault Koleos went through extreme testing of thousands of hours of static and dynamic tests designed to ensure the model complied with Renault's high standards and confirm its reliability. In total, New Koleos was put through its paces with more than 1,100,000km of intensive testing.
New Koleos' natural elegance is further complemented through the sophisticated body colour selection available, i.e. Solid White, Ultra Silver, Dune Beige, Titanium Grey, Cosmo Blue and Metallic Black, and the wheel designs available - 18" Argonaute Alloy wheels on the Expression Model & 18" Two-Tone Alloy wheels on the Dynamique versions.
