2023 Renault Koleos: Invitation to well-being

2023 Renault Koleos
The 2023 Renault Koleos is a spacious family-friendly SUV that focuses on style, comfort and fuel economy. It seats 5 people so comfortably that we think that even adding a third row and making it a seven seater would have been ok as well.

We drove the new Renault Koleos for a week in a variety of situations. We got stuck in the morning rush hour, the afternoon school run, weekend drive out of the city and quick trips to the shopping mall. In all daily life situations, the Renault Koleos beat our expectations.

It is a 4×4 car with a CVT transmission which means it does not have the acceleration of a sport car but more enough power to hual and family around town and up on the hills.

Its exceptional fuel economy has its competitors up against the wall. We are talking of 13.8 kilometers per liter on the highway and 9.6 kilometers inside the city in start / stop traffic conditions. With the high fuel prices this year, you could be saving quite a lot with this Renault.

Renault Koleos Exterior:

With its assertive silhouette, muscular shoulders and imposing front grille, Renault Koleos wins you over from the first glance with its athletic power.

As a capable 4×4 SUV the Renault Koleos boasts a raised ground clearance, skid plates high on the bumper and 19-inch wheel rims. The charismatic Renault Koleos is up for an adventure on hard packed sand, rocky mountains of the UAE and smooth drive on Dubai’s well paved highways. 2023 Renault Koleos

    Refinement hits you first when climbing into the passenger compartment of the Renault Koleos. The finish is meticulous, right down to the smallest details: satin chrome for the inserts on the steering wheel, gear lever and air vents; padded materials on the dashboard and door trims; covered grab handles.

    The Koleos brings comfort to all of its occupants. In the front, with the option of electrically adjustable heated, ventilated and massaging driver’s seats. In the rear, passengers enjoy generous space and a reclining bench seat that’s ideal for long journeys. The spacious passenger compartment is an invitation to well-being.

    We also noticed attention to detail and features that make daily life easier. If you got your hands full, to open the boot, just place your foot underneath the rear bumper. It understands the art of gaining space: thanks to the Easy Folding System, the rear seats vanish instantly, one by one or all together to form a flat floor, according to your needs. To manoeuvre, its Easy Park Assist system simply takes the controls and parks the vehicle smoothly, without you having to touch the steering wheel. The best of modern technology will help you in everyday life.
