Renault Malaysia has announced the availability of the Koleos Signature, a new two-wheel drive (2WD) variant of Renault’s flagship D-segment SUV.
Striving to make the Renault Koleos as Premium as possible
The Koleos Signature variant presents an intermediate offering within Renault’s high-end large SUV line-up in Malaysia, which currently includes the Koleos 2WD and 4WD.
Offering enhanced connectivity, Koleos Signature incorporates a new smartphone replication feature through the R-LINK 2 multimedia system. This function is integrated into the vehicle’s capacitive touchscreen display and allows for information to be easily transferred from one display to another. A steering wheel-activated control allows drivers to safely and vocally communicate instructions when accessing the various apps that are suitable for use while driving, such as calling, messaging and music.
For added convenience, the Koleos Signature comes with a hands-free power tailgate, which is also available in the 4WD variant. The power tailgate can be easily controlled via buttons from within the vehicle and directly on the power tailgate, as well as using the Renault Smart Keycard. Even with arms fully laden and the keycard buried deep in a pocket or handbag, the boot can be opened with a simple swipe of the foot underneath the rear bumper while the height can be programmed according to individual needs.
Koleos Signature also features additional refinement and styling, with a new electric panoramic sunroof that adds a premium touch while enhancing in-cabin ambience, as well as premium brown leather seat upholstery that portrays understated elegance.
The Koleos Signature is powered by a 2.5-liter petrol engine that is mated to an X-Tronic CVT automatic transmission. This efficient engine is capable of delivering maximum power of 171 PS and peak torque of 226Nm. It is also responsive at low and mid-range engine speeds.
The new Renault Koleos Signature variant is available at RM198,800 (on-the-road inclusive of GST, without insurance. Color options available include Marron Red, Universal White, Meissen Blue, Grey Metallic and Black Metallic. Like all Renault mainstream vehicles, the Koleos comes with a five-year full manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage. This warranty is fully backed by Renault and not undertaken by any other insurance companies, which means terms and conditions as well as parts covered are consistent from the first year of ownership to the end of the warranty period.
The Koleos Signature will be on display at Renault showrooms nationwide from today onwards, and will be on display as part of Renault’s showcase at the Malaysia Autoshow 2018, which takes place from 26 – 29 April.
