Prices revealed for new lower-emission Renault Koleos diesels

Renault’s revised Koleos is now on sale, introducing two higher-performance and lower-emission diesel engines alongside revised styling and upgraded technology.

The updated Koleos brings a choice of new Blue dCi 150 and Blue dCi 190 engines, which deliver improved performance and efficiency compared to their forebears

Available for deliveries from November, the refreshed model replaces the former 1.6-litre diesel with a new 150hp 1.7-litre Blue dCi 150, available in front-wheel drive only and emitting 143g/km of CO2 with its standard X-Tronic continuously variable transmission.

The line-up also gets a larger 190hp 2.0-litre Blue dCi 190 fitted with Renault’s intelligent All Mode 4×4-i and delivering an official 150g/km of CO2 with the standard X-Tronic CVT.

Just two trims are offered – Iconic and GT Line – in line with the launch of the Koleos EasyLife range in October 2018, with both grades available with the new engines.

Equipment updates include upgraded R-Link 2 infotainment systems with full-screen Apple CarPlay, accessed via a standard seven-inch screen or 8.7-inch on GT Line. Both models also get hands-free parking, front and rear parking sensors with reversing camera, hands-free keycard, automatic dual zone climate control, full LED headlights, cruise control and speed limiter, automatic lights and wipers, heated/cooled cup holders and auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

For an extra £2k, the GT Line upgrades from 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels to 19-inch versions and also adds a powered tailgate, leather upholstery with heated, electrically adjustable front seats and an 8.7-inch portrait infotainment screen.

The updated model also gets a refreshed – and bolder – exterior design including a more prominent grille, new chrome trim, larger skid plates and the standard-fit LED headlamps plus additional colour options while the interior has been enhanced with new high-grade materials, satin trim inserts and a two-stage reclining seat back on all models.

Driver assistance features have been updated with the introduction of a pedestrian detection function for AEB. This follows the addition of standard adaptive cruise control late last year.
