I don’t know about you but paying £36k for a Renault, any Renault, is a potential hazard waiting to happen. However, that is the asking price Renault want idiots to pay for their new-ish Koleos SUV, which went on sale in the UK last summer. What you are getting, in reality, is a NeesanX-Trail, indeed the Koleos is as about as French as Donald Trump.
It was designed by Renault and developed by Nessan and is actually manufactured in Busan, South Korea by Samsung, yes that Samsung. As befitting, all top of the range SUVs the Koleos is stuffed full of technology.
Standard equipment includes two-tone Nappa leather, Hands-Free Parking, exclusive 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels, 13-speaker BOSE sound system, full LED headlights, heated and ventilated front seats, heated and cooling cupholders.
In addition you also get a powered Automatic Tailgate, One-Touch easy folding rear seats, opening panoramic sunroof, and 8.7-inch portrait screen with R-LINK2 infotainment and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay.
The Initiale Paris trim level is available with dCi 175hp engine and 4WD Auto X-Tronic CVT transmission. It is the most powerful diesel engine in the Renault range with 380Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm. Servicing is required once a year or every 18,000 miles.
