A new variant of the Renault Koleos has just been introduced in Malaysia by TC Euro Cars, the sole franchise holder of Renault vehicles in this country, called the Signature.
Priced at RM 198,800 on-the-road before insurance, the 2WD Signature variant will sit between the high spec 4WD Koleos (RM 209,000) and the 2WD base model (RM 184,200).Additions in the Signature variant from the base model includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility – a feature not even the high-spec 4WD is equipped with. It can be operated via voice command through the multi-function steering wheel.
The Signature also comes equipped with hands-free powered tailgate, a feature only made available to the 4WD Koleos so far. The boot can be opened with a simple swipe of the foot underneath the rear bumper while height adjustments can be made from the boot.
Inside, the Koleos Signature gets “Chestnut Brown” leather upholstery as opposed to the 4WD’s “Dark Carbon” upholstery. Most significant of all is the new electric panoramic sunroof which by the way, is a feature not available even in the 4WD variant.
The Koleos Signature is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine that’s paired with a X-Tronic CVT automatic transmission. Power output is rated at 169 hp with 226 Nm. Colour options available include Marron Red, Universal White, Meissen Blue, Grey Metallic and Black Metallic.
The Renault Koleos Signature comes with a five-year full manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage, backed by Renault and not undertaken by any other insurance companies, which means terms and conditions as well as parts covered are consistent from the first year of ownership to the end of the warranty period.
The Koleos Signature will be on display at Renault showrooms nationwide from today onwards, and will be on display as part of Renault’s showcase at the Malaysia Autoshow 2018, which takes place from 26 to 29 April 2018.
