Renault Koleos

The Renault Koleos served as the French brand's first true foray into the emerging SUV sector when it launched in 2008.

The second generation Koleos launched in 2016, based on the underpinnings of automotive partner Nissan's X-Trail medium-sized SUV, also adopting its 2.5-litre engine and CVT auto. Cheaper variants are front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is offered on the range topping versions. The exterior and interior details of the Koleos are unique to Renault, and the range starts from around $30,000.

Current prices range from $32,490 to $45,490 for the Koleos LIFE X-TRONIC (4x2) and Koleos INTENS X-TRONIC (4x4).

Renault Koleos Interior

The Renault Koleos has quite a unique interior for its segment. As these images show, its dashboard is bisected by a vertical touchsreen multimedia system surrounded by a combination of touch-sensitive and physical buttons, as well as black trim. Want leather? It's there, too; even on the centre console's hand grips.

Renault Koleos Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Renault Koleos here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Renault Koleos 2018: Is wet carpet a common issue?

    It’s not something I’ve heard of, to be honest, but there are really only a handful of ways to get wet carpet. The first is that the windscreen or side glass is leaking and allowing water in. The other chance is that there’s a rubber bung or seal missing from the floorpan that is allowing water splashed up under the car to dampen the carpet. I’ve even seen worn or damaged door seals allow rainwater to be sucked into a car on the move.

    The first thing I’d check would be the condition of the door and window seals and make sure there’s nothing stuck to them. Even a tiny twig or piece of leaf-litter can break the seal and allow water in overnight.

    If it’s none of those things, then you have to start looking at possibilities such as a leak from the heater matrix. This is a serious hassle as often the whole dashboard has to be removed to replace the matrix. But your car should still be under factory warranty, so I reckon it’s back to the dealership and an in-depth look at what’s going on. Don’t forget, too, that even though the water is pooling in the passenger’s footwell, it could be entering the car elsewhere.

  • Renault Koleos 2016: How do I reset the clock?

    I contacted Renault Australia about this, Trevor. But it seems they need to know the trim level and precise model before they can offer an answer. Apparently, different specifications across the Koleos range meant that some variants had a different clock in a different dashboard which required a different technique to reset. Have you asked at a dealership?

  • Renault Koleos 2018: Should I haggle the price down?

    You should try to haggle, you’ve nothing to lose, the dealer can only say “no”. I would try to beat him down on the delivery costs.

  • How do I get back my money after a dealer mistake?

    As the dealer caused the problem that is your starting point. Put your case to them, stating your concern about the car and what they did, and ask for a refund or a replacement car. If the response is not to your satisfaction go to the NSW consumer affairs people and seek their assistance in resolving the matter.
