It is available at RM201,800 (on-the-road inclusive of GST, without insurance). The new variant will be on display to the public at Ground Floor, Centre Court, Mid Valley Megamall from July 19-23.
The current Koleos was introduced locally as a front-wheel drive model in September last year. It is now priced at RM182,800.
The new Renault Koleos 4WD variant features the ALL-MODE 4x4-i technology, an unparalleled four-wheel drive technology that permanently monitors grip levels to ensure optimal traction for more dynamic performance, greater stability and enhanced safety.
New to the 4WD version also is a hands-free power tailgate. The power tailgate can be easily controlled via buttons from within the vehicle and directly on the power tailgate, as well as using the Renault Smart Keycard. Even with arms fully laden and the keycard buried deep in a pocket or handbag, the boot can be opened with a simple swipe of the foot underneath the rear bumper while the height can be programmed according to individual needs.
Additionally, a new elegant Marron Red colour is also available for the new Renault Koleos 4WD model.
“The Renault Koleos has been well-received since the launch of the 2WD variant last year. We are confident that with its added capabilities and the Koleos’ powerful design, the 4WD version will appeal to even more SUV buyers in Malaysia,” said TC Euro Cars Sdn Bhd CEO Kuan Kim Luen.
The ALL-MODE 4x4-i technology has been proven on millions of Renault-Nissan Alliance vehicles worldwide. The system includes an easy-to-use control switch, which allows drivers to choose from three modes – 2WD, 4WD Auto and 4WD Lock, each with its specific advantages based on driving conditions.
In the 2WD mode, the new Koleos runs with a front-wheel drive for optimised fuel consumption, ideal in good to normal driving conditions.
In 4WD Auto mode, the ALL-MODE 4x4-i technology permanently monitors both longitudinal and lateral acceleration, as well as yaw rates and steering angles. Based on this information, the system calculates the ideal front/rear torque split (from 100/0 to 50/50) to provide the most efficient grip possible to eliminate understeer and oversteer.
When travelling off-road or in conditions where grip is at a premium, such as on mud and sand, the 4WD Lock mode allows the driver to engage permanent four-wheel drive at speeds of less than 40kph to distribute available torque equally between the front and rear axles (50/50) for maximum stability.
