    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.

    Firstly, albeit D-segment sized, it will not be available in 7-seat format. It's refined, well equipped and — so long as you like the chrome and lights — good-looking for a big SUV. Can it topple the CX-5, Tiguan and co? Stepping up to Signature Nav adds leather-trimmed seats electrically operated and heated in the front , a powered tailgate with gesture control, LED headlights, 19in wheels and a larger 8.

    Renault Koleos () review | CAR Magazine

    The Renault Koleos is a huge step up for the French brand. Can it topple the CX-5, Tiguan and co? Considering all versions are standard with automatic transmissions, the value also looks right up there with the class-leaders — no Euro premium in sight. However, the frontal styling with prominent Renault badge, L-shaped DRLs and chrome highlights, and the slim tail-lights, offer some points of difference.

    Inside the cabin there is far greater differentiation. This is sharp value indeed. The list of standard equipment is quite strong considering the pricing is on par with mainstream Japanese and Korean rivals, and shows the benefits of importing a car here from Korea rather the Europe.

    Renault Koleos pricing and specifications. The front-wheel drive Life version gets six airbags, a tyre-pressure monitor, inch alloy wheels, roof rails, rear-view camera, rear sensors, cruise control, eight-speaker Arkamys sound system with crisp quality , auto wipers, dusk-sensing headlights, dual-zone climate control, LED cabin lights, TFT digital instruments and a leather steering wheel.

    The top-of-the-line AWD-only Intens adds said 8. The only downsides are some middling-grade plastics scattered about, the odd bit of bland Nissan switchgear, and the flat, short-based seats. At millimetres long on a mm wheelbase, the new Koleos is appreciably bigger than the underwhelming old one, and has gone from being one of the shorter cars in the class to one of the biggest. Rear knee room is up a massive 77mm to mm — a claimed class-best.

    The rear seats are a highlight, with ample space for two cm-plus occupants, large door apertures 77 degrees and good outward visibility. You also have a full-size steel spare wheel under the floor, and levers embedded in the cargo area to fold the back row flat on a Worth noting, too, that unlike the X-Trail, which can be had with seven seats, the Koleos is strictly a five-seater. Under the bonnet of the Koleos is a 2. Fuel use on the manufacturer-tested combined-cycle is 8.

    Towing capacity is a decent kg. The turbo diesel version will launch mid, give or take. The drivetrain is, as its figures suggest, decent at best. Pottering about at low speeds under moderate throttle is a task managed without fuss. But plant the foot for an overtake, or even to ascend a steep hill or punt out of a corner, and the lack of low-end torque and the excessive noise from the droning CVT will have you longing for the effortless torque of a smaller-capacity turbo-petrol, or a meaty diesel.

    Dynamically, the Koleos again will feel most at home in urban duties. Funnily enough, on initial impressions the front-drive Zen we drove felt a little pointier than the AWD Intens, on account of its lighter kerb weight.

    Even spirited driving on gravel never sent more than 25 per cent of torque to the rear in the latter. We will get cars through the CarAdvice garage soon, and will devote more time to familiar routes and urban environs, so stay tuned if you want a more detailed breakdown.

    From an ownership perspective the Renault Koleos is actually outstanding, which may prove surprising. Even better are the servicing intervals, which are annual. The driver-specific kilometre intervals based on behaviour also stretch up to 30,km between visits for instance, if you do a lot of country clicks , which is almost industry-topping. Renault needs to talk about this selling-point more, frankly. So there are our first impressions of the all-new Renault Koleos, a huge step up over its dowdy predecessor, with a quirky badge, spacious cabin and sharp value on offer.
