Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President of Corporate Design said, “The new KOLEOS completes the styling renaissance of the Renault range that began with the new Clio in 2012. As a designer, the challenge was to imagine an SUV that was not only elegant, but also modern and dynamic.”
Available in seven hues ranging from Universal White and Ultra Silver to Meissen Blue and Metallic Black, the all-new Koleos is undoubtedly elegant and dons alloy wheels which come in three different designs. The ruggedness of the French SUV, is connoted through its 210 mm of ground clearance and approach / departure angles of 19 and 26 degrees respectively.
Within the cabin, the similarities between the Koleos and Talisman continue. While a tall, wide dashboard exudes a sense of safety and protection, it imbues sportiness and offers excellent visibility all around. The wheelbase, which measures 2,705mm is one of the longest in the segment and allows for the all-new Koleos to boast impressive amounts of interior space.
