Having made its European debut at the Paris Motor Show last autumn, the All-New KOLEOS is now available to order, expanding Renault’s crossover line-up alongside Kadjar and Captur. Offering Renault’s warm and sleek design language, All-New KOLEOS offers the rugged capability of an SUV with the elegant refinement of a large executive saloon. Assured handling, excellent interior comfort and quality as well as a host of advanced technology and convenience items ensure an exceptional experience for driver and passengers alike. All-New KOLEOS is priced from £27,500 and UK deliveries commence later this summer.
Boasting a powerful stance that sets it apart from its rivals, the All-New KOLEOS takes Renault design cues from other recently introduced models such as the All-New Mégane and Talisman. Renault’s signature C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) at the front and always-illuminated horizontal DRLs to the rear make the All-New KOLEOS instantly recognisable.
All-New KOLEOS provides a comfortable, spacious and clear cabin thanks to its opening panoramic sunroof and impressive rear passenger leg room which is amongst the very best-in-class thanks to its five-seat architecture.
Available with Renault’s ALL MODE 4x4-i four-wheel drive technology, and ground clearance of 210mm, the All-New Koleos complements its exceptional refinement with all-terrain ability.
The All-New KOLEOS is offered in a six version high-end line-up based on two trim levels that will be familiar to Renault owners – Dynamique S Nav and Signature Nav. Both trim levels provide a truly comprehensive standard specification.
The dCi 130 engine is available on both trim levels with a six-speed manual transmission and two-wheel drive.
The dCi 175 engine is available with either a six-speed manual or seven-speed Auto X-Tronic transmission – both with ALL-MODE 4x4-i four-wheel drive.
During the design process of All-New KOLEOS, exceptional interior
space for five occupants was a main focus. With an overall length of
4672mm and wheelbase of 2705mm, passengers are provided with comfort and
space throughout the cabin. Indeed, rear knee room is amongst the best
in its class at 289mm with rear passengers also benefiting from dual
air vents, dual USBs (with two more in the front), a central armrest
with cupholders and extra tinted rear windows.
The spacious interior has not been detrimental to boot space – 458-litres (VDA) with all seats in place and 1,690-litres (VDA) with rear seats down. Achieving maximum boot capacity couldn’t be easier thanks to the All-New KOLEOS’ One-Touch easy folding rear seats whereby they can be folded (individually or all at once) via a button in the boot. The Signature Nav comes with a Powered Automatic Tailgate that can open or close the rear boot by a press on the keycard or, conveniently if carrying luggage, by waving a foot under the rear bumper.
Renault’s advanced driver assistance systems, such as Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Over-speed Prevention with Traffic Sign Recognition and Hill Start Assist have been applied across the line-up. A rear parking camera with front and rear parking sensors is also included on all versions as well as an electrochrome rear mirror.
Standard safety features include ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with traction and understeer control, cruise control, speed limiter, Hill Start Assist, six airbags, seat belts with load limiters and pretensioners at the front, side impact protection bars and ISOFIX child-seat mounting points on the two outer rear seats.
Providing an airy feel to the cabin, Dynamique S features an opening panoramic sunroof. Part-black leather upholstery with extra tinted rear windows, ambient lighting, cup holders able to heat and cool drinks for front passengers and a central armrest with in-built cup holders in the rear, maintain a comfortable yet practical feel to the All-New KOLEOS. Automatic Dual-zone climate control, a Hands Free Keycard and automatic lights and wipers are also standard.
Ensuring all passengers can keep fully charged throughout their journey, four USB and two AUX ports are provided. The Arkamys 3D Sound 4x35W DAB radio with seven-inch touchscreen R-LINK2 multimedia system includes satellite navigation with TomTom® LIVE traffic updates, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone replications, Western European mapping, Bluetooth audio streaming and Handsfree connectivity.
Outside, the All-New KOLEOS Dynamique S sports 18-inch ‘Agapi’ two-tone alloy wheels and electrically- adjustable heated and folding door mirrors. Longitudinal roof bars provide a hint at the rugged off-road capabilities of the SUV.
Signature Nav adds to this specification with 19-inch ‘Galiki’ two-tone alloy wheels and full LED ‘Pure Vision’ headlights to the exterior.
Occupants are cocooned inside with full black leather upholstery with heated front seats and the R-LINK2 multimedia system is increased to an 8.7-inch portrait touchscreen as seen on All-New Mégane and All-New Scénic. A Powered Automatic Tailgate ensures loading the boot is as convenient as possible.
All-New KOLEOS has a kerb weight of 1,650kg and a towing capability of 2,000kg (braked) and 750kg (unbraked).
