Renault’s facelifted Koleos SUV is now available to order in the UK, with prices starting from £28,195 OTR ($35,095). Meanwhile, customer deliveries are scheduled for November.
On the outside, the 2020 Koleos gained a more prominent grille, larger skid plates and new chrome trim, joining the Pure Vision LED headlights (standard), 3D effect taillights, larger brake light and the new Vintage red metallic color.
Inside, there are new soft-touch materials, revised trim inserts, better tech (R-Link2 infotainment system gains Apple CarPlay integration) and improved safety systems such as the introduction of a pedestrian detection function for the Active Emergency Braking System.
Other safety systems fitted as standard include Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Over Speed Prevention with Traffic Sign Recognition.
The range itself has been simplified and now consists of two trim levels – ICONIC and GT Line, both of which can be specified with either of the new Blue dCi diesel engines.
Speaking of which, the 1.7-liter 150 PS (148 HP) engine can be had with FWD only, while the larger 2.0-liter 190 PS (187 HP) unit works alongside Renault’s Intelligent All Mode 4×4 system.
ICONIC trim models come with new 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, whereas new 19-inch versions are standard on the GT LINE spec. The latter also features a powered tailgate, leather upholstery with heated, electrically-adjustable front seats and an 8.7-inch portrait-style infotainment display.
A 7-inch screen with sat-nav and smartphone replication comes standard on entry-level models, as do the front and rear parking sensors with reversing camera, hands free key card, automatic dual zone climate control, cruise control and speed limited, automatic lights and wipers, heated/cooled cup holders and the auto-dimming rear-view mirror.
