AT Wan­neroo Re­nault, the top-sell­ing medium SUV Re­nault Koleos ex­udes style, com­fort and safety fea­tures at a com­pet­i­tive price.

The range is soon to be ex­panded with the Koleos Diesel.

With the Koleos con­sis­tently a topselling model in Aus­tralia, the ar­rival of a diesel en­gine to com­plete the line-up means the Koleos will con­tinue to go from strength to strength.

The ex­te­rior de­sign melds el­e­gance and an ath­letic stance with its taut bon­net lines as well as sev­eral chrome em­bel­lish­ments, in­clud­ing strips de­signed to vis­ually lengthen the front end and give an im­pres­sion of dy­namism.

At the rear, the wide, hor­i­zon­tal tail lights am­plify the im­pres­sion of width and draws the eye to the Re­nault logo on the tail­gate.

In­side, the cabin of­fers plenty of space for rear pas­sen­gers, with gen­er­ous head room, shoul­der room and el­bow room.

The Koleos’ 2705mm wheel­base is among the long­est in the class and boot space is just as im­pres­sive, with 550 litres.

With the rear seats folded, its car­ry­ing ca­pac­ity in­creases to 1690 litres.

Trav­el­ling com­fort is fur­ther en­hanced by cus­tomis­able LED cabin lighting, with a pal­ette of hues in­clud­ing green, blue, yel­low, red or vi­o­let.

In an age where con­nec­tiv­ity mat­ters, the Koleos has a range of con­nected, per­son­al­is­able mul­ti­me­dia sys­tems such as the R-LINK 2 mul­ti­me­dia sys­tem.

This con­nected tablet is fea­tured across Re­nault’s high-end range and co-or­di­nates func­tions like in­fo­tain­ment, satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion, ra­dio and driver aids.

Some of its key fea­tures in­clude a sev­eninch por­trait screen of­fer­ing the same tac­tile func­tions as a per­sonal tablet, re­al­is­tic nav­i­ga­tion dis­play with 3D rep­re­sen­ta­tion of build­ings, Blue­tooth and au­dio stream­ing, USB port, 3.5mm jack socket and 12V power sup­ply.

There are also four cus­tomis­able home­pages with wid­gets for swift ac­cess to the most fre­quently used func­tions.

The Re­nault Koleos fea­tures a pow­er­ful 2.5-litre petrol en­gine mated to a new XTronic CVT au­to­matic trans­mis­sion for en­hanced per­for­mance and driv­ing en­joy­ment, while op­ti­mis­ing fuel con­sump­tion.

Stan­dard safety equip­ment in­cludes two adap­tive front airbags, two lat­eral tho­rax/shoul­der airbags for the front oc­cu­pants, two cur­tain airbags and rear ISOFIX an­chor­age for i-Size child seats.

Koleos has a five-year/un­lim­ited kilo­me­tre war­ranty and five years road­side as­sist and the first three ser­vices are capped at just $299 per ser­vice.
