Renault Koleos receives much needed updates since its March 2010 debut in the country
The Renault Koleos, which was previously introduced in the country in March 2010, finally gets an updated version. The Koleos, Renault’s very first crossover MPV, is one of the first vehicles to receive sustainable benefits from the Nissan-Renault Alliance. Previously, the Koleos was produced in Busan, Korea by Renault Samsung Motors.
At a glance, there aren’t definite exterior changes to the overall package of the current and existing Koleos. According to a TC Euro Cars senior manager, the only definite addition is that the new Koleos has AWD (All-wheel Drive) and the previous Koleos was a 2WD. She further pointed that the interior of the 2014 Koleos received more updates than the exterior. Look closer, the Koleos’ exterior does present a few new additions such as, the triple chrome front grille that’s paired to a larger Renault badge and fresh bumper. At either side, there are chrome-plated protective strips, door mirrors with LED indicators, and the recognizable roof railings inherited from its predecessor. From the rear, the updated Koleos has retained much from its predecessor, including the split tailgate and rear bumper protectors. The overall package is completed by 17-inch 5-spoke wheels.
Renault has added new trims on the leather upholstery to enhance the Koleos’ interior impression. A satin finish center console with plenty of chrome accents are obvious hints when you get inside the crossover MPV. The R-Link multimedia system, comprising the 7-inch touchscreen with Bluetooth or Smart device connectivity, is something new for the Koleos. The R-Link can be accessed via touching the screen or the joystick located next to the gear lever. Meanwhile, sheer entertainment for the occupants is derived from the factory-fitted Bose audio system. For storage purposes, the Koleos offers plenty of compartments like a 15-liter glove box, a removable stowage bin and ample cup holders.
Safety-wise, the 2014 Renault Koleos presents the Blind Spot Warning for the first time, a reverse camera that works with the parking sensors, Hill Start Assist, ABD, EBD, EBA, ESC and understeer control, as well as 6 airbags, load limiter and pretensioner seat belts and ISOFIX.

TC Euro Cars retails the 2.5-liter Renault Koleos Premium Crossover MPV at an On-the-Road price of RM185,888.00, which includes a 3-year warranty. There are three color options for the Koleos: Pearl White, Mars Grey and Mettalic Black.
