Geelong Advertiser - Motoring - - CARSGUIDE -

RE­NAULT Aus­tralia has in­tro­duced the new Koleos Sport Way Limited Edi­tion.

Bring­ing a stylish ad­di­tion to the medium SUV mar­ket, the two-wheel-drive Koleos will be limited to 100 ex­am­ples.

It went on sale na­tion­ally on Mon­day, Au­gust 18, and fea­tures an exclusive in­te­rior of black leather with red stitch­ing.

The in­te­rior is adorned with deep crim­son high­lights around the cen­tre con­sole and stylish alu­minium ac­cents.

It fea­tures a high-def­i­ni­tion rear view cam­era as stan­dard along with heated front seats.

The looks are en­hanced with strik­ing black me­tal­lic paint as stan­dard along with the 18-inch Bi-Ton al­loy wheels – pre­vi­ously only avail­able on the range-top­ping Priv­i­lege spec­i­fi­ca­tion.

The Koleos Sport Way Limited Edi­tion is avail­able ex­clu­sively with a 4x2 pow­er­train and is avail­able with both a 2.5-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel en­gine.

It con­tin­ues to of­fer blind spot warn­ing and the lux­u­ri­ous Bose sound sys­tem as stan­dard. It is $1500 more than the equiv­a­lent Bose spec­i­fi­ca­tion, but rep­re­sents in ex­cess of $2300 worth of ad­di­tional value to the cus­tomer.

The 2.5-litre petrol model is $37,490, while the 2.0-litre diesel vari­ant is priced from $39,490.

Re­nault Aus­tralia man­ag­ing direc­tor Justin Ho­ce­var said Aus­tralia was the first mar­ket to have the car.

“We are thrilled to be able to of­fer this limited edi­tion prod­uct of­fer­ing for cus­tomers who want a sportier look­ing medium SUV,” he said.
