Additional features in the MY21 update include the addition of low-speed autonomous emergency braking system, a 10-inch driver display, a 9.3-inch portrait touchscreen with the EasyLink multimedia system and a new shark-fin style antenna.

Customers can option up the award-winning Megane hot hatch with a panoramic sunroof and a performance package complete with Recaro seats and Fuji lightweight alloy wheels.

Recommended retail pricing for the Megane R.S. models has increased by just $500.

“Koleos had a great result in 2020, recording a total of 2,408 sales in a year that presented the toughest selling conditions in memory,” said Renault Australia Managing Director Anouk Poelmann.
