Renault Australia has announced a seven-year, unlimited kilometre warranty across its entire Koleos SUV range, in addition to three years of free scheduled servicing.

All six variants of the French brand's Korean-produced crossover are eligible for the new ownership program, with prices kicking off at $30,900 plus on-road costs for the base 'Life' trim level.

The company claims the three-year servicing offer saves customers up to $1107.

"I want to motivate Australians to be proud about the vehicle they choose to drive," said Anouk Poelmann, managing director for Renault Australia.

"It should not just get them from A to B it should inspire them whenever they walk towards it, stimulate them whenever they are inside it, and most of all it should encourage them to get out and enjoy their life."

The new warranty and servicing program catapults the Koleos to the top of the medium SUV class, given the only natural rival offering similar warranty coverage is the Kia Sportage. While the Kia offers the same time and mileage interval in terms of warranty, petrol-powered versions will cost between $992 and $1034 for the first three years of servicing (or 45,000km).

It's also worth noting Renault provides service intervals of 12 months or 30,000km for the Koleos, compared to the 10,000km and 15,000km offered by rivals.

"The Australian Automotive industry yearly kilometre average of 13,400km* means non-Renault SUV owners often need more than one trip to the service department each year," Poelmann said.

"This can add a considerable cost to drivers over the ownership period, and means our longer servicing intervals provide both cost and convenience benefits to Australian Koleos owners every year."

As for the wider Renault Australia line-up, the Captur, Clio, and Megane (GT and RS) get a five-year/unlimited kilometre warranty, while the Clio RS and van range (Kangoo, Trafic and Master) get three-year/unlimited kilometre coverage.
