2014 Renault Koleos

Introduce

When you say ‘SUV’ béo an Indian, he expects a large, sluggish, muscular monster that can automatically pull out of the way or something small, light, nimble béo have. can glide over rocks and streams. The Koleos isn’t these, but it is an SUV. So what is its appeal béo Indian consumers? Renault decided béo update it béo make it look more attractive than before, and we’ll take a look.

Exterior

The Koleos has the same good looks as before, but unlike a regular facelift, the changes on the 2014 model are barely noticeable. There’s a new front bumper and grille, and the diamond logo is larger and sits more proudly up front, but that’s all you can tell. On the side, the changes are a chrome strip and wheels. They are now a very attractive five-spoke design on the top spec 4×4 AT variant. At the back, nothing seems béo have changed at all. The Koles is a unique car, yes, but it is also a beautiful car.

The Koleos hasn’t changed much on the inside either – it’s still one of the best equipped cars in its class. Front passengers get electrical control, something no other SUV offers in the price bracket. Keyless entry and exit, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlights and wipers, cruise control and a Bose sound system. Hill start assist, hill descent control, ESP system and six airbags are also standard on the automatic transmission. Everything is upholstered in beige leather or plastic which feels nice, but getting behind a tall driver like me leads béo a lack of legroom in the Koleos. Other than that, though, the rear passengers are pretty spoiled – they get AC vents in the B-pillar, center armrests, foldable trays and even a set of secret storage spaces under the hood. floor. The trunk has a reasonable capacity of 450 liters, and the rear door is split-style, so it can double as a picnic table or even a bench, as long as you’re not as heavy as I am.

Engine & Gearbox

The Koleos has a 2.0-litre dCi diesel with 170hp and 360Nm – good numbers for the car. The engine is fine-tuned and has a bit of turbo lag all the way up béo 2000 rpm. However, that’s not what makes the Koleos unsatisfactory: the gearbox is the real reason most cars will turn away. This is a traditional torque converter and takes its own time béo get into the right gear for the situation. Even when stopped, it takes a second or two for the car béo actually start moving, from the moment your right foot moves. In the age of nine-speed dual-clutch transmissions, this is an old-fashioned thing. The slow transmission also makes passing on a single-lane highway slow, meaning it can’t get all the torque from the engine. Things get a little better in manual mode, but the transmission still shifts relatively slowly.

However, when driving lightly, Koleos is in top shape. The gearbox slides from gear béo gear, there’s no jerking and the engine doesn’t go all the way up the rev range. If you love béo travel around, Koleos might be what you are looking for.

There’s now a 4×2 AT and a 4×2 manual also available – the manual is a six-speed unit and the engine puts out 150hp and 320Nm, which means the manual should be at the same speed as the automatic – but turns two seconds faster béo 100kmph as claimed by Renault. However, we didn’t get a chance béo drive anything other than the 4×4 AT on this drive.

Ride & Handling

The Koleos is a relatively small SUV at a little over four and a half meters long, but because it’s tall it doesn’t go into corners very well. There’s body roll and the steering is too light for mental driving, but riding on bad roads is pretty good. Renault has wisely chosen béo go with a better ride than excellent handling, befitting the nature of the transmission. The brake system is very good, articulate and progressive. They pulled Koleos béo a standstill from triple-digit speed without any fuss. The Koleos is going béo be a good city SUV but off the highway, there are better options at the price point.

Identify

The Koleos is a lovely car. It is beautiful, has a relatively economical diesel engine and has a large amount of equipment. However, the gearbox is a drawback, as is the space for the price. The price of new Koleos has made it Rs 2 lakh, which is Rs 26 lakh on average. A few thousand more bucks could land you an Audi SUV, so it makes more sense béo opt for a manual – but it doesn’t have the equipment the top variant offers. Herein lies the problem: Renault has yet béo create the right combination of engine, transmission and equipment béo appeal béo the masses. Meanwhile, those who want a small SUV béo drive around the city should seriously consider the Koleos.

Introduction
When you say ‘SUV’ béo an Indian, he expects either a large, lumbering beast that muscles pesky autorickshaws out of the way or a small, light, agile thing that can scamper across rocks and streams. The Koleos is neither of these things, and yet it is an SUV. What, then is its appeal béo the Indian consumer? Renault has decided béo update it béo make it look more enticing than before, and we take a look. Exterior
The Koleos has the same good looks as before, but unlike a regular facelift, the changes on the 2014 model are almost unnoticeable. There is a new front bumper and grille, and the diamond logo is larger and sits prouder at the front, but that’s all you can make out. At the side, the changes are a chrome rub strip and the wheels. They are now a very appealing five-spoke design on the top-spec 4×4 AT variant. At the rear, nothing seems béo have changed at all. The Koles is unconventional, yes, but it is a good-looking car as well.
Interior
The Koleos hasn’t changed much on the inside, either – it remains one of the best-equipped vehicles in the segment. The front passenger gets electric controls, something no other SUV offers in the price bracket. There is keyless entry and go, dual-zone climate control, automatic headlamps and wipers, cruise control and a Bose audio system. Hill start assist, hill descent control, ESP and six airbags are also standard on the automatic variant. Everything is swathed in beige leather or plastic that feels nice, but sitting behind a driver as tall as me brings béo the fore the shortage of legroom in the Koleos. Other than that, though, the rear passenger is quite spoiled – they get AC vents in the B pillars, a centre armrest, foldable trays and even a secret set of underfloor storage spaces. The boot is reasonably large at 450 litres, and the tailgate is a split-type, so it can double as a picnic table or even a bench, as long as you don’t weigh as much as me. Engine & Gearbox
The Koleos has a 2.0-litre dCi diesel with 170bhp and 360Nm – healthy figures for the car. The engine is refined, and there is a little turbo lag until 2000rpm. That’s not what makes the Koleos fall short of expectations, though: the gearbox is the real reason why most will turn away. This is a traditional torque converter and takes its own sweet time béo get into the right gear for the situation. Even when driving off from a standstill, it takes a second or two for the car béo actually start moving, from the time your right foot moves. In the age of 9-speed dual-clutch gearboxes, this is an anachronism. The slow-witted gearbox also makes overtaking on single-lane highways a slow affair, meaning that all that torque from the engine cannot be exploited fully. Things get a little better in manual mode, but the gearbox still shifts relatively slowly.

While driving sedately, though, the Koleos is at its best. The gearbox slurs from one cog béo the next, there is no jerkiness at all, and the engine doesn’t go up the rev range. If you like cruising around, the Koleos might just be what you’re looking for.
There is now a 4×2 AT and a 4×2 manual available as well now – the manual gearbox is a six-speed unit and the engine puts out 150bhp and 320Nm, which means that the manual should be approximately the same speed as the automatic – but turns out two seconds quicker béo 100kmph as per Renault’s claims. We didn’t get the opportunity béo drive anything but the 4×4 AT on this drive, though. Ride & Handling
The Koleos is a relatively small SUV at a little over four and a half metres in length, but since it is tall, it does not commit very well béo corners. There is body roll and the steering is too light for spirited driving, but the ride on bad patches of road is quite good. Renault has wisely chosen béo go with good ride rather than great handling, which suits the nature of the gearbox. The brakes are very good, with good bite and progression. They haul the Koleos béo a standstill from triple-digit speeds with no fuss whatsoever. The Koleos will make a good city-based SUV but out on the highway there are better options at the price point.
Verdict
The Koleos is a likeable car. It is good-looking, has a relatively frugal diesel and has a great amount of equipment. However, the gearbox is a letdown, as is the space for the price. The price of the new Koleos has driven it up by Rs 2 lakh, which makes it an average of Rs 26 lakh. A few more lakhs can net you an Audi SUV, so it will make more sense béo opt for the manual – but it doesn’t have the equipment that the top-spec variant offers. Herein lies the problem: Renault hasn’t yet hit on the right mix of engine, gearbox and equipment béo entice the public. In the meanwhile, those that would like a small-ish SUV béo drive around in the city should seriously consider the Koleos.
