Grab The Renault Koleos Initiale Paris From £36,700 In The UK

Renault expanded the Koleos family more than a year ago, with the range-topping Initiale Paris, which can now be ordered in the UK.

Priced from £36,700 ($49,552) OTR, and with deliveries commencing this spring, the SUV comes with an exclusive body color – Amethyst, new exterior badging, 19″ two-tone alloys, and full LED headlights.

Inside is where things truly change, as the new Renault Koleos Initiale Paris benefits from heated and ventilated front seats, two-tone Nappa leather, ambient lighting, heated and cooled front cup holders, dual-zone climate control, R-Link2 infotainment with 8.7″ display, TomTom sat-nav, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and hands-free tailgate.

Advanced Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Hill Start Assist, Traffic Sign Recognition with Over-Speed Prevention, and Lane Departure Warning are also part of the standard equipment, alongside the reversing camera, parking sensors on both ends, ESC with traction and understeer control, cruise control, speed limiter, and the electrochromatic rearview mirror.

Powering the Renault Koleos Initiale Paris is a 2.0-liter dCi four-cylinder diesel engine that makes 177PS (175hp) and 380Nm (280lb-ft) of torque, mated to a 7-speed Auto X-Tronic transmission. Four-wheel drive is standard, and the SUV needs 9.5sec to accelerate from 0 to 62mph (100km/h), before topping out at 125mph (201km/h).

    This is so ugly. It looks like a chineese car.

    Geez, through some faux wood grain inserts at least!

    • CADOX

      Who on earth would want fake plastic wood nowadays ? Also, the wood theme is not really what Renault is aiming for with this special edition and this style has never really been in Renault’s interior philosophy, historically they’ve always had modern-orientated interiors as opposed to a classic wood grain presentation Jaguar-style.

    Looks more Nissan than Renault, just like the Kadjar.

    From £36700? Who is gonna buy this in the UK especially? This reminds me of Ford Vignale which you rarely see on the roads!
