  • Renault is going to bring its biggest SUV yet to our market at the end of this year, but is the Koleos good enough to challenge the segment.

    HEADS TURNED WHEN THE COVERS CAME OFF RENAULT'S ALL-NEW KOLEOS MID-SIZE SUV AT THE BEIJING MOTOR SHOW.

    History of the logo. The Renault logo has an interesting history. During the First World War, the company successfully produced light tanks. In connection with the popularity of the company's tanks, the leadership of Renault even changed the logo, placing in it the image of his tank. But the tank on the emblem was not delayed for a long time, in 1923 a well-known form of diamond appeared. However, this is not a diamond - it is a trace from the tank.

    But there is ample there for a quick burst when slotting into freeway traffic with a noticeable intrusion of engine noise or when overtaking. The Comparison Rate is true only for the example given and may not include all fees and charges. But, the five-year warranty and the fact the Koleos looks like an expensive car, as well as being a roomy one might be enough to get it on your list. There is a diesel variant in the pipe line for mid next year, so expect to hear more about the Koleos and an expanded model line-up when it arrives. Review 8th Dec Kia Sportage review:

    Credit fees, service fees and charges may apply. Indeed, the SUV segment is the fastest-growing new car segment in the country. But back to the Koleos. You might already know that Renault and Nissan and now Mitsubishi are in an alliance and, put simply, this means they can share platforms to spin-off their own products and save some coin while doing it.

    Indeed, the Koleos shares not just its platform with the X-Trail but also its engines, all-wheel drive system and transmission. The entry-model Life is available only in two-wheel drive trim while the Zen can be had as both two- and all-wheel drive, and the top-spec Intens is all-wheel drive only.

    It might be a first-world problem, but there is nothing more frustrating than stabbing away at a touchscreen, while driving, just to turn the air-conditioning fan speed down. And, so it is with the Koleos Intens which gets an 8. The screen is big enough and easy to use but why on earth did Renault think removing the hard climate controls from the entry- and mid-spec models was a good idea?

    Oddly, well, I think so anyway, the temperature dials are hard dials and separate from the touchscreen…. Now the whinge is over.

    The interior of the new Koleos is a big step up over the old model and a much nicer place to be than its virtual twin-under-the-skin Nissan X-Trail. Despite a smattering of hard plastics strewn in out of the way places, most things you touch are either soft or good quality matte finish plastics. The fit and finish was good, but not a patch on, say, the interior of a Peugeot yes, Peugeot or VW Group product. The easiest way for me to describe it is to say it feels a little like the inside of a Hummer H3… only the quality is much, much higher.

    The front seat is comfortable if a little flat in the base which will only annoy those travelling longer distances, like I was when I was testing it. The rear seats are a standard Thanks to the mm of ground clearance and a lack of things to grab onto to help pull themselves up into the car, and a slippery door sill kids will need a helping hand. And the same goes when climbing out with my daughter slipping off the door sill and almost slippery-sliding out the door… luckily Dad was there to catch her.

    The boot offers litres of storage space with the rear seats in place, and up to litres with them dropped down. This is the same engine that ran in the old Koleos, but Renault er, Nissan claims tweaks include increased compression ratio, lighter components, and friction reduction. What does all this mean in the real world? That said, and despite the relatively low output, neither variant of Koleos feels underpowered, and I spent plenty of time schlepping up and down the Blue Mountains with the family on-board.
