The 2017 Renault Koleos is a huge step up for the French brand. Can it topple the CX-5, Tiguan and co? It’s in the mix, at the very least.

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...


We test drove the Koleos Privilege on the freeway, up hills, down narrow windy roads, etc. No problems handling car in the wet, at roundabouts, tight corners. Felt very safe and solid. Love the two sunroofs, the blinds at the backseat windows, the sound system is A1. We were thinking if replacing our existing Subaru Forester with another Forester...
