Check This Out! Renault Koleos 2017
The launch of the second-generation Renault Koleos medium SUV is one of the company’s most significant to date. Amazing updates inside and out. This French rival to the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson and new Volkswagen Tiguan is poised to become the company’s top-seller here, which is fitting when you consider the continued rapid growth in this corner of the market.
It’s larger than before, more upmarket and certainly better value - and looks great! The broad wing-like grille with vertical slats expands to the LED headlamps. There are rounded-out rectangular cutouts for keeping the fog lights. Even the tail lamps have been spruced up. Despite the increase in width and length, Renault will market the new Koleos as a midsized SUV. The wraparound taillights look nice as does the chrome window strip. The rear bumper has rectangular exhaust outlets with chrome trim. A panoramic sunroof is available as an added extra. An on the inside:
The front-wheel drive vehicle gets six airbags, a tyre-pressure monitor, 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, rear-view camera, rear sensors, cruise control, eight-speaker Arkamys sound system (with crisp quality), auto wipers, dusk-sensing headlights, dual-zone climate control, LED cabin lights, TFT digital instruments and a leather steering wheel.
The top-of-the-line AWD-only Intens adds said 8.7-inch screen and ambient cabin lighting (with five colours), remote engine start, LED headlights, side parking sensors, real leather trim, rear-seat USB points a bigger 12-speaker Bose sound system with a sub, sunroof and an electric tailgate with a hands-free kick-operated sensor.
