Renault Teases Koleos Successor

Renault Teases Koleos Successor

The Koleos has been on sale internationally since 2008 and is in dire need of a replacement. Renault kicked off the teaser campaign of the much awaited Koleos-replacement just in time before next week’s Beijing Auto Show.

Renault provided a first glimpse of its new large SUV in a teaser video posted on media channels showing the full LED headlights which resemble those of other Renaults – namely the Megane and Talisman. Although it is expected to be much larger than the model it is about to replace, the new SUV will be sold exclusively with a five-seat layout. Renault believe that there aren’t enough families out there with four kids to create a market big enough for a version with an optional third row of seats. On the interior front, we are expecting to find the massive portrait-style touchscreen for the R-Link 2 infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster.

The engine and gearboxes for the Renault will be sourced from the Nissan X-Trail and the new high-riding model will also borrow most of its hardware. Renault's design chief Laurens van den Acker was quoted earlier saying that “essentially we have made a Renault version of the X-Trail.”

Renault will introduce the Koleos replacement in Beijing next week because that’s going to be the model’s main market and is going to be produced locally. Besides China, we know Renault has plans to sell this in Australia, Asia, and Europe.
