Koleos…….. Renault  Pedigree in a crossover

Ease of driving

Renault has ensured that one of its key traits has been designed into the Koleos – the speed and ease with which drivers feel at home behind its wheel. Its contained dimensions ensure that it copes as effortlessly with city motoring as it does when taken off the beaten track.

The practical dashboard design and intuitive controls allow drivers to swiftly familiarise themselves with the different equipment. Controls for the audio system (including Bluetooth), cruise control and automatic park brake are all positioned either on the steering wheel or within easy reach of the driver.


Safety is an important component of the Renault DNA. Koleos is one of the 12 Renault vehicles to have achieved the maximum 5-star from Euro NCAP safety rating.

Safety is not an option; whether you buy the introductory model Dynamique or the top of the range Privilege, you get Renault's optimum safety package standard. It all starts with clever design and the use of a comprehensive list of both passive and active safety features. Starting with 6 airbags (front driver and passenger airbags, front side airbags and curtain airbags), ESP, ABS and EBA.

Keeping the driver focused on the road is an important component of active safety. The Renault Koleos standard feature list is filled with features that assist in this. They include Bluetooth®, allowing you to operate your phone calls from the radio 'satellite' controls, cruise control with speed limiter, automatic rain sensing wipers, automatic lights and 'satellite' radio controls.


The Renault Koleos incorporates the latest technology to make the driver’s life easier:

  • Integrated TomTom™ Satellite Navigation will take the stress out of finding the way.
  • CVT transmission gives you the ease of driving an automatic yet delivers the economy of a manual. 
  • Automatic parking brake which is applied whenever the engine is switched off and automatically released when the vehicle pulls away (alternatively it can be operated with the flick of a finger).
  • Take the 4x4 Koleos off-road and you have the added assurance of Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist.


Everything inside the Renault Koleos has been carefully thought through to offer the ultimate in comfort. The silent drive, generous cabin space, and dual-zone climate control all contribute to the overriding sense of well being whatever the type of surface, and beg for the Koleos to be used as a 'daily driver'.

It’s the attention to the little things that makes the Renault Koleos stand out, be it the integrated rear sunblinds that hideaway within the door, the aviation-style tables on front seatbacks or the air-chilled glovebox to keep your chocolate just right. All things that add to the comfort of those travelling in the Koleos.


The South Korean manufactured Renault Koleos is a 'crossover' whose roots can be traced back to the worlds of the passenger car, the MPV and 4X4 vehicles. It successfully blends the best of all three categories to deliver outstanding versatility and driving pleasure whatever the type of road.  In built up areas, on motorways and on non-sealed surfaces, Koleos chassis exudes a real sense of safety and being in control.

The Renault Koleos is an outstanding package; it has those attributes that the public have grown to love from French cars: style and comfort, yet delivers outstanding level of value, safety and practicality. It is even more attractive in June with additional features to the value of $2,500, making it stand out in a competitive market segment.
