RENAULT has lifted the lid on its brand new Koleos, taking the model up-market and up-sized to become its flagship SUV offering, with a new design, new platform and new dimensions.
Set to be the company’s top-of-the-line offering in Australia when it arrives later this year, the new Koleos boasts a powerful stance, with muscular exterior lines that set it apart from rivals and provides a refined, comfortable interior with class-leading cabin space, including 289mm of knee room for rear occupants.
It will offer an elevated driving position with excellent visibility, and an impressive ground clearance for when it’s time to take it bush. Hand grips on either side of the centre console echo the world of off-road motoring while providing the interior with a sporty feel.
Renault’s user-friendly four-wheel drive system features all mode 4×4-i technology that makes it easy to switch between 2WD, 4WD AUTO and 4WD LOCK modes. The transmission also guarantees enhanced safety and stability by neutralising under-steer and over-steer and optimising grip in difficult conditions.
A key feature of the new interior is R-Link 2, a user-configurable experience that serves as a control centre to coordinate functions like audio, infotainment, navigation, hands-free telephony, radio and driver aids.
Pricing will be available closer to launch (at a date yet to be determined).
