Transmission is a 6-speed manual or X-Tronic CVT and, like the X-Trail, the Koleos is available with 2WD or 4WD. A ground clearance or 213mm and approach and departure angles of 19 and 26 degrees make it reasonably capable off road.

June 2019
Renault Koleos revamped for 2019.

Only available as X-Tronic CVT automatic, now with same chain-cam, manifold in head 1,749cc 150PS/340Nm diesel engine as Renault Kadjar and Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail (developed from Renault 1.6DCi) and improved 1,995cc chain cam diesel with 190PS/380Nm. 1,749cc diesel front wheel drive only emits 143g/km of CO2; 1,995cc diesel all wheel drive emits 150g/km of CO2 (WLTP).

Despite low sales in the UK, over 100,000 Koleos were sold globally in 2018.

Refreshed exterior design, plus new alloy wheels and additional colour options. Upgraded R-LINK 2 infotainment with full screen Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Enhanced interior with new high-grade materials for increased premium feel. Full suite of advanced safety technologies, including autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control. Intelligent All Mode 4x4 i four-wheel drive and excellent ground clearance. Standard 'Pure Vision' LED headlamps that offer 20 percent more light than traditional lights. Renault EasyLife line-up of Iconic and GT-Line models. UK pricing announced July 2019 with first customer deliveries in October 2019.

In the AWD, 2WD mode engages only the front wheels, helping to reduce fuel consumption. Auto (4WD) allows the electronic control unit to constantly monitor driving conditions and automatically distribute torque between the front and rear axles, with an ability to send up to 50% of the torque to the rear wheels. Lock (4WD)is for the most extreme conditions. This function locks the centre differential to ensure a constant 50/50 torque split between the front and rear wheels for maximum traction on surfaces such as snow, mud, dirt and sand.

Renault Koleos 2019 Dimensions

Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS City and Inter-Urban) now includes a Pedestrian Detection system, while Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Automatic High/Low Beam Headlights (AHL), a 360° surround view camera and Easy Park Assist (EPA) are all included. All modes also get Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and Tiredness Detection Warning (TDW).

Infotainment uses Renault’s R-LINK 2 multimedia system, which has full-screen compatibility with Apple CarPlay. Featuring a 7-inch landscape touchscreen on Iconic models and an 8.7-inch portrait layout on GT-Line, this feature allows for both easier reading of the display and quicker, safer access to functions.

In addition, R-LINK 2 provides access to a wide variety of apps, including the Waze navigation system. Plus are two USB plugs, which for easier access are now located under the centre console at the base of the gear lever. As a further safety boost, the sat nav, telephone, app, email and radio functions can be accessed using voice control by simply pressing a button on the steering wheel.
