Renault Koleos gets a refresh for 2019
The Renault Koleos SUV has been given a mid-life refresh and now features new engines, an enhanced interior and improved safety tech. Here’s everything that’s new.
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.
