2018 Renault Koleos Life review

There are some good ownership credentials for a European SUV to add to the Koleos Life’s appealing price tag, relatively good equipment level and a spacious interior.

2017 Renault Koleos Zen 4x2 Review

Read the full article here. The second-generation 2017 Renault Koleos has arrived and is ready to take on the juggernauts in the medium SUV segment. The new Koleos is vital to Renault in Australia, with our love for SUVs and the French brand's desire to capitalise on that, largely behind the decision to launch it here before anywhere else in the world...

2018 Renault Koleos v Volkswagen Tiguan comparison

As the current family favourite in Australia, medium SUVs represent the second-biggest slice of the local new car market – hot on the heels of more affordable (and often fleet-favoured) small cars. The choice of available models is broad with 19 mainstream models to pick from, but in this instance we’ve chosen a pair of haulers that can not only live up to the demands of active family life, but do so with a semi-premium Euro twist...

Renault Koleos scores five-star ANCAP rating

The Renault Koleos has been awarded a five-star ANCAP safety rating, based on tests carried out by Euro NCAP. However, the rating has a 2017 date-stamp and only applies to two-wheel drive variants sold from June 2018 – a little confusing, but it coincides with the recent introduction of autonomous-emergency braking and lane-departure warning across the range...

2019 Renault Koleos facelift spied

The facelifted Renault Koleos crossover has been photographed during hot weather testing in southern Europe. The styling changes seem to be quite minor, so if you don't fancy the appearance of the current Koleos, you probably won't be swayed by the updated model. The model's distinctive C-shaped headlights remain, although there may be some fiddles to the internal structure of the lighting units...

Based on the Intens (from $44,990 plus on-roads), the S-Edition uniquely gets a front-wheel drivetrain and boasts extra kit like 19-inch alloys, and metallic black mirror caps...

2018 Renault Koleos Zen (4x2) review

When you think 'medium SUV', you tend to think of those big sellers: RAV4, Tucson, CX-5, even Escape and Tiguan. But then you’ve got one that’s a little different – enter the Renault Koleos Zen 4x2. A whole size bigger than its predecessor, and almost as big as a Hyundai SantaFe, though only with five seats – big, comfy seats at that...

2012 Renault Koleos Dynamique (4x2) review

We bought our 2012 Renault Koleos brand new in 2012, with the idea that our first child wouldn't be too far down the line. We test-drove so many different cars and SUVs, but after driving a few, my wife loved the height of an SUV and the compact packaging. At around 4.5m long, most mid-size SUVs were the same length as her old Pulsar, making them easy to park but with significantly more room inside...

2017 Renault Koleos Intens (4x4) Review

I have owned two previous Koleos's. I picked up my new Intens two weeks ago, which seems to be light years ahead of the old model in terms of space, finish and technology. I looked at the Hyundai Santa Fe and Tuscon, the Kia Sportage, Isuzu, VW Tiguan and Toyota RAV4. Nothing came close in terms of features for the price...

2012 Renault Koleos Privilege (4x4) Review

The CVT petrol transmission and engine combination does need to be improved as the overall acceleration is less than sufficient for this heavy privilege SUV model. Avg fuel economy on premium fuel is currently 11.3L/km which is worse than my old WRX. Perhaps a 2.0L turbo variant might persuade buyers looking at Subaru, Holden or Ford to try something with a little more luxury...
