The Renault Koleos, Renault’s big brother to the Captur and Kadjar, gets a facelift and goes on sale in the UK with prices starting at £28,195.
It’s a bit over two years since the Renault Koleos arrived in the UK as a bigger Renault SUV, joining the Captur and Kadjar, so Renault reckons it’s time for a bit of a refresh.
But this is no major overhaul of a long-standing model, just a bit of a tidy up and update to keep things fresh as competition continues to increase.
As you’d expect for this sort of facelift the changes are pretty minor, and include the usual tweaks to the exterior – grille, side skirts, bumpers, alloys and more chrome trim – an interior with an upgraded infotainment and new diesel engines.
The new diesel engines are a Blue dCi 1.7 litre turbo diesel with 148bhp, CVT ‘box and FWD, and a Blue dCi 2.0 litre turbo with 187bhp and CVT but with four-wheel drive as standard.
Two trim levels are all that’s available, with the Koleos Iconic getting 18″ alloys, Purevision LED headlights, 7″ infotainment, parking sensors, Climate, reversing camera, Cruise and heated and cooled cup holders. It costs from £28,195.
Opt to pay a bit more – from £30,195 – for the Koleos GT Line and you’ll get 19″ alloys, a bigger 8.7″ infotainment screen and electric heated front seats.
The refreshed Renault Koleos is now available to order at Renault’s UK dealers, from £21,195 for the Iconic dCi 150 up to £33,195 for the GT Line dCi 190.
