As Renault’s largest SUV, the Koleos is an imposing vehicle, but on the outside tweaks have been kept to a minimum. You’ll find LED headlights are now standard, while it now bears a larger grille along with some bash plates under the front bumper.
Enhancements to the rear of the Koleos mirror those at the front, with a bigger skid plate, extra chrome trim and a bigger high-level brake light that complements the 3D effect Edge Light tail lamps. Range-topping models will benefit from chrome trim, while new alloy wheel options and paint colours have been added to the options list too.
Inside, there’s a 7in or 8.7in touchscreen depending on trim, and both use Renault’s latest R-LINK infotainment system that’s now compatible with Apple CarPlay. Standard features include adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, ambient interior lighting and a reversing camera.
The Koleos leads its class in terms of passenger and boot space, and it’s the same story with the refreshed model. However, you’ll now find a host of improved soft-touch materials along with satin trim inserts. The rear seats also recline, improving passenger comfort.
Engine-wise, two new diesel engines have been added. The first is a 1.8-litre unit producing 150hp and is front-wheel drive only. A larger 2.0-litre 190hp engine is available too, which features a four-wheel drive system as standard.
Prices are to be confirmed in July, with UK deliveries commencing from October.
