PARIS: Renault has given its large Koleos SUV a facelift, promising greater style and comfort for both driver and passengers.
In terms of exterior design, just a few minor touches set this restyled Koleos apart from the current version, such as a more pronounced front grille and new rims.
Renault has above all sought to boost comfort in the cabin, with, for example, a driver seat with integrated massage function, warming and cooling cup-holders, and a reclining rear bench seat with two positions, allowing passengers to relax as they ride.
Note that this new Koleos model can also be fitted with a glass sunroof which extends over the rear seats.
On the technology front, Renault has added "LED Pure Vision" headlamps, acting as both high- and low-beam headlights, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system. Depending on the version, the R-Link 2 multimedia system comes with a 7-inch horizontal or an 8.7-inch vertical display.
Under the hood, this restyled Koleos is fitted with a new generation of 150-190 horsepower Blue dCi Renault engines (gaining 15hp compared to the current offer) and a seven-speed XTronic automatic transmission as standard.
All in all, there's no major overhaul in store with this refreshed SUV, which is due in dealerships this fall. Pricing is yet to be announced.
