First introduced locally in 2016, the Renault Koleos has been given a facelift by TC Euro Cars, the sole franchise holder of Renault in Malaysia.
Available in two variants – Koleos (RM179,888) and Koleos Signature (RM189,888), the D-segment SUV is now open for booking, and will be previewed to customers at the Premium Auto Car Expo from the 2nd to 3rd November 2019.
The new facelifted Renault Koleos sports a new front bumper with full-width chrome detailing, as well as a new rear bumper with additional chrome trims and two-tone finish.
The entry-level Koleos rides on redesigned 18-inch alloys, while the Koleos Signature gets new 19-inch wheels. The new Renault Koleos will be available in three new exterior colours – Amethyst Black, Millesime Red and Ultra Silver, in addition to the existing Universal White and Black Metallic colours.
On the inside, the 8.7-inch R-Link2 infotainment system has been updated to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on both variants (previously only available on the Signature model).
Both front seats are now power adjustable, while the rear gets two-step adjustable seats. The Koleos Signature retains exclusivity on the panoramic sunroof, but the hands-free powered tailgate makes it way down to the Koleos as well.
Under the hood, the same 2.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 171 hp and 226 Nm of torque. Power is mated to a X-Tronic CVT transmission.
The Renault Koleos comes with five-year full manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage, as well as a five-year/100,000 km free service package. Additionally, bookings made in November can enjoy an additional RM15,000 cash rebate if you decide to trade-in your vehicle – the value is added on top of your vehicle assessment amount!
If you prefer not to get tied-in to long-term commitments, the Renault Koleos is also available through the Renault Subscription plans. Offered in both 1-year and 2-year plans, the subscription fees are inclusive of road tax, insurance, as well as regular servicing.
All subscription plans come with a 20,000 km mileage cap as standard, but you can opt for the additional mileage upgrade add-on. More details can be found in the table below.
