The 2015 Renault Koleos has arrived in local showrooms, bringing a new range structure and added features, including a standard reverse-view camera.
The 2015 Koleos line-up is available in three specifications levels: the entry-grade Expression, the mid-tier Bose, and the flagship Bose Premium, the latter of which replaces the previous Privilege model grade.
Koleos Expression prices are up $500, taking the 4x2 petrol manual variant to $28,490 before on-road costs and the CVT version to $30,490, while Koleos Bose prices are down $500, with the 4x2 petrol CVT now $35,490 and the 4x2 diesel auto $37,490.
While not a direct replacement in terms of specification, the Koleos Bose Premium is $4750 less expensive than the old Privilege, now topping Renault's mid-sized SUV line-up at $40,490 in 4x4 petrol CVT trim and $42,490 in 4x4 diesel auto spec.
The 2015 Expression adds the enhanced R-Link infotainment system with 7.0-inch touchscreen and satellite navigation, along with auto headlights and wipers, heated door mirrors, and roof rails. A new red body colour, Acerola, is also available.
The 2015 Koleos Bose gains LED daytime running lights and grey perforated leather upholstery, as well as three new body colour options: Acerola, Metallic Brown, and Mineral Beige.
In addition to the changes for the Bose variant, the 2015 Koleos Bose Premium adds new 18-inch ‘Bi-Ton’ alloy wheels, directional bi-xenon headlamps, and an electric panoramic glass sunroof.
The Cayenne orange body colour is no longer available.
