Previously announced by Renault Malaysia (TC Euro Cars), the new Renault Koleos is bound to reach domestic shores in September. The new Renault Koleos is already available for bookings at a starting price of RM172,800 or RM116,800 (Langkawi).

The new Renault Koleos is an SUV that packs all the styling cues and capabilities associated with the segment. In keeping with the Renault design strategy, new Koleos is covered by design pillar ‘EXPLORE,’ which stands for robustness and a taste for adventure. The new Koleos features classic SUV design cues: door protective mouldings, large-diameter wheels and aluminium roof bars.

At the front, the prominent Renault logo is set at the center of a broad chrome grille. Further to that, the taut bonnet lines contribute to the car’s expressive design, an impression that is heightened by the presence of several chrome embellishments, including strips that run from the head lights along the full length of the wings to visually lengthen the front end and exude an impression of dynamism. The 2,705mm wheelbase, for a total vehicle length of 4,672mm, counts amongst the longest in the class. The new SUV comprises of new lighting signature, as well as full LED Pure Vision head lights and DRLs.

From the rrar, Renault’s trademark style is again prominently on display. The wide, horizontal tail lights amplify the impression of width (1,843mm) and draw the eye to the Renault logo on the tailgate. Chrome inserts set into the lower part of the rear bumper take the shape of twin exhaust tail pipes, a detail that is complementary with new Koleos’ overall exterior design. Lastly, permanently-lit LED tail lights feature Edge Light technology to bring up a clear, bright 3D effect.

Meanwhile, the combination of high ground clearance (210mm) and approach and departure angles of respectively 19 and 26 degrees ensures go-anywhere ability.

The latest Koleos is offered in four body hues (Universal White, Grey Metallic, Black Metallic and Meissen Blue) to go with 18-inch ‘Argonaute’ alloy wheels.

Inside, the new Renault Koleos’ genes are similarly prominent. Redolent of comfort, quality and strength, its elegant, protective interior is in perfect harmony with the model’s exterior lines. An elevated driving position offers excellent visibility. The tall, wide dashboard is intended to give driver and passenger a sense of safety and protection. Hand grips either side of the center console echo the world of off-road motoring while imbuing the interior with a sporty feel.

Further details of the new Renault Koleos will be available on soon after its official release…
