The much anticipated All-New Koleos has arrived in Ireland and is already turning heads on our roads. The D-segment SUV combines rugged, assertive styling with the elegance, refinement and comfort associated with large saloon cars.
Laurens van den Acker – Senior Vice-President of Corporate Design says: “All-New Koleos completes the styling renaissance of the Renault range that began with Clio in 2012. As a designer, the challenge was to imagine an SUV that was not only elegant, but also dynamic and modern. To achieve this, instead of diluting the traits traditionally associated with SUVs, we accentuated the segment’s familiar cues thanks to taut, powerful, horizontal lines, along with muscular haunches and high ground clearance. All-New Koleos consequently exudes an inner strength. It is every inch an SUV and every inch a Renault.”
Highland Motors will be holding a Koleos open day on Saturday 12th August from 10:00am – 2:00pm at our Mountain Top Showrooms, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. All are welcome to come along and test drive the All- New Koleos.
All-New Koleos tops Renault’s crossover range alongside Captur and Kadjar as well as embodying Renault’s high-end collection together with Talisman, Talisman Estate and Espace (models not available in Ireland). All-New Koleos’ dynamic stance is further emphasised by its large wheels and tyres (overall-diameter: 730mm) and low roof line (1.68 metres).
Key features of this stylish SUV include – Acclaimed four-wheel drive technology; Off-road capability thanks to high ground clearance A refined interior equipped with the segment’s very best journey-enhancing appointments; Class-leading cabin space thanks to a 2.71 metre wheelbase and a 4.67 metre total length and a connected experience with the R-LINK 2 multimedia tablet.
All-New Koleos features a selection of proven powertrains and technologies, with a choice of two diesel engines mated to either X-Tronic automatic transmission or a manual gearbox.
The luxury feel of Koleos extends way beyond the equipment and technologies. The real luxury is in the space available to both driver and passengers. Koleos was designed from the outset as a five-seater, and because the seats don’t conceal bulky folding mechanisms, or have to disappear into the floor, they are sumptuously padded. As a result, as well as providing exceptional leg and shoulder room, they offer fantastic comfort over long distance drives.
In Ireland there will be a six version high-end line-up based on two trim levels that will be familiar to Renault owners – Dynamique S Nav and Signature Nav. Both trim levels provide a truly comprehensive standard specification.
Renault’s advanced driver assistance systems, such as Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition with Over-speed Prevention and Hill Start Assist have been applied across the line-up. A rear parking camera with front and rear parking sensors is also included on all versions as well as an electrochrome rear mirror.
Standard safety features include ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution, ESC (Electronic Stability Control) with traction and understeer control, cruise control, speed limiter, Hill Start Assist, six airbags, seat belts with load limiters and pretensioners at the front, side impact protection bars and ISOFIX child-seat mounting points on the two outer rear seats.
Providing an airy feel to the cabin, Dynamique S Nav features an opening panoramic sunroof. Part-black leather upholstery with extra tinted rear windows, ambient lighting, cup holders able to heat and cool drinks for front passengers and a central armrest with in-built cup holders in the rear, maintain a comfortable yet practical feel to the All-New Koleos. Automatic Dual-zone climate control, a Hands Free Keycard and automatic lights and wipers are also standard.
Ensuring all passengers can keep fully charged throughout their journey, four USB and two AUX ports are provided. The Arkamys 3D Sound 4x35W DAB radio with seven-inch touchscreen R-LINK2 multimedia system includes satellite navigation with TomTom® LIVE traffic updates, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ smartphone replications, Western European mapping, Bluetooth audio streaming and Handsfree connectivity.
Outside, the All-New Koleos Dynamique S Nav sports 18-inch ‘Agapi’ two-tone alloy wheels and electrically- adjustable heated and folding door mirrors. Longitudinal roof bars provide a hint at the rugged off-road capabilities of the SUV.
Signature Nav adds to this specification with 19-inch ‘Galiki’ two-tone alloy wheels and full LED ‘Pure Vision’ headlights to the exterior.
Occupants are cocooned inside with full black leather upholstery with heated front seats and the R-LINK2 multimedia system is increased to an 8.7-inch portrait touchscreen as seen on All-New Mégane and All-New Scénic. A Powered Automatic Tailgate ensures loading the boot is as convenient as possible.
The optional Climate Pack offers ventilated and heated front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel and a heated windscreen, and is available on Signature Nav.
A 13-speaker BOSE© sound system and Hands Free Parking are available on Signature Nav as well as the possibility of specifying either Sierra Brown or Silver Grey in lieu of the standard Carbon Black leather upholstery. Metallic paint is available as an option on both trim levels.
