Renault Koleos Replacement Could Be Dubbed “Maxhton”

Later this year, the replacement SUV to the Renault Koleos will launch and it will reportedly be renamed.

French publication Auto Moto makes the claim after the automaker recently registered the “Maxhton” moniker at the Chinese intellectual property authority. Given Renault’s fascination with rather obscure model names, Maxhton sits quite nicely alongside the likes of Talisman and Kadjar.

The new SUV will launch on the back of the small Kadjar, which at first was thought to be the replacement to the Koleos. However, it is now reported that the new model will grow in size by 36 cm and accommodate a third row of seats to distinguish it from the Kadjar.
