Renault Koleos Life 2018 review: snapshot

The Life comes with just the 126kW petrol engine, driving the front wheels through a CVT auto.
EXPERT RATING

The Renault Koleos range opens up with the Life, one of three regular spec levels after the demise of the Initiale.

The Renault Koleos range opens up with the Life, one of three regular spec levels after the demise of the Initiale. The Life comes with just the 126kW petrol engine, driving the front wheels through a CVT auto.

For $30,990 you get 17-inch alloys, an eight-speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, cruise control, remote central locking, reversing camera, rear parking sensors, auto headlights and wipers, cornering lamps, cloth trim, power windows, heated and powered rear vision mirrors and a space-saver spare.

The eight speaker stereo is run by Renault's 'R-Link' software which has taken a curious turn for the boring and monocrhome recently. That might be partly explained by the presence of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is a solid win, especially considering the lack of sat nav.

The Life has a good basic safety package, with six airbags, ABS, stability and traction controls, brake force distribution, forward AEB, reversing camera, forward collision warning and lane departure warning. There are two ISOFIX points and three top-tether restraints.

Since its 2016 introduction, ANCAP has not got around to crash testing the Koleos. EuroNCAP has and awarded a five star rating in September 2017. Curiously, ANCAP has not recipocrated with the same rating as it has done in the past, which is confusing.
