September 2019

Updated Renault Koleos priced from £28,195

The new Renault Koleos is now available to order, with prices starting from £28,195 and customer deliveries commencing in November.

A pair of new Blue dCi diesel engines are more powerful and efficient than the units they replace, says Renault. The new 1.7-litre Blue dCi 150 engine is available in front-wheel drive only, while the larger 2.0-litre Blue dCi 190 is matched to Renault’s intelligent All Mode 4x4-i system.

Both are paired with Renault’s CVT transmission and have been tuned to deliver maximum torque at only 1,750rpm, the Blue dCi 150 producing 340Nm and the Blue dCi 190 developing 380Nm. As a result, the updated Koleos is more comfortable and usable than its predecessor, with notable improvements in real-world acceleration. All versions now also benefit from hands-free parking.

Subtle styling changes include pure Vision LED headlamps, which are now standard across the range, as part of a new front-end design that also includes a more prominent grille with chrome detailing, new bumper design, and a larger, more purposeful skid plate. At the back, there’s a bigger skid plate, additional chrome trim, new lower rear bumper and a larger high-level brake light that complements the 3D effect edge light tail lamps.

Exterior revisions are completed with the availability of new ‘Red Vintage’ metallic paint, extra side trim and new, two tone alloy wheel designs for all versions.

Inside, the updated Koleos features soft-touch materials and revised satin trim inserts. Rear seat passenger comfort is also improved, with a two-stage reclining seat back now standard on all models.

The introduction of a pedestrian detection function for the Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS) completes the revisions, heightening safety for occupants of New Koleos and other road users. Other advanced safety systems fitted as standard include Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and over speed prevention with traffic sign recognition.

Following the launch of the Koleos EasyLife range in October 2018, the revised Koleos features just two trim lines – Iconic and GT Line. Both trim lines can be specified with either of the new Blue dCi engines.

Standard equipment across the range includes a 7-inch screen with satellite navigation and smartphone replication, front and rear parking sensors with reversing camera, hands free keycard, automatic dual zone climate control, full ‘Pure Vision’ LED headlights, cruise control and speed limiter, automatic lights and wipers, heated/cooled cup holders and auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

The Iconic features new 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, while new 19-inch versions are standard on the GT Line. The GT Line also adds a powered tailgate, leather upholstery with heated, electrically-adjustable front seats and an 8.7-inch portrait infotainment screen.
