Renault has freshened up its Koleos mid-sized SUV with significant upgrades to the
Life and Zen model lines, and the addition of a new Zen 4×4 variant.

Koleos is an important vehicle for the French carmaker, accounting for nearly a third
of Renault’s passenger and light commercial range.

The Koleos powertrain is unchanged with all variants powered by a four-cylinder 2.5-
litre petrol engine, producing 126kW at 6000rpm and 226Nm at 4400rpm, mated to
an X-tronic CVT automatic transmission.

Fuel consumption is listed at 8.1 litres per 100 kilometres from two-wheel models
and 8.1 L/100km from the 4x4s.

Now, with the arrival of the new 4×4 Zen variant, Koleos has a broader offering in the
highly competitive mid-size SUV segment, while the addition of new standard safety
and comfort features double down on the premium value-for-money proposition that
has been a Koleos mainstay.

All Koleos variants now come with blind spot monitoring, front and side parking
sensors, auto-folding mirrors, rear privacy glass, a new 18-inch alloy wheel design
and chrome highlights on the lower side body and rear bumper

The Zen variant now gets the 4WD option as well as black leather upholstery, one-
touch easy fold rear seats, 8.7-inch portrait touchscreen, customisable ambient
lighting, easy park assist, hands-free powered tailgate, LED reversing lights, and a
sweeping rear turn signal

The top grade Intens model sees 3D Sound by Arkamys replace the BOSE sound
system, and Sand Grey Nappa leather removed from the option list. All three trim
levels now no longer sport front fog lights or the wide-view driver’s side mirror.

As with all Renault vehicles Koleos has a five-year Easy Life Ownership program
that includes a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, five-year roadside assistance,
and five-year capped price servicing.

Koleos Life 4×2: $37,000
Koleos Zen 4×2: $41,700
Koleos Zen 4×4: $44,200
Koleos Intens 4×2: $45,200
