As you'd expect, pricing is competitive, starting at £28,000 for the entry-level 2WD dCi 130 variant. For reference, a Koleos is priced at nearly £3,000 above a comparable Nissan X-Trail, but the difference between the two models narrows considerably once you start adding a Koleos-like level of equipment. With this Renault, there are now three plush trim levels - 'Dynamique S Nav', 'Signature Nav' and 'Intiale Paris': if you want the 4WD dCi 175 model, you'll need one of the plusher two variants, but for these, you'll need a budget of at least around £30,000.
All models are very well equipped, with features fitted across the range including an opening panoramic sunroof, part-black leather upholstery, tinted rear windows, ambient lighting, cup holders able to heat and cool drinks for front passengers and a central armrest with in-built cup holders in the rear. Automatic Dual-zone climate control, a Hands Free Keycard and automatic lights and wipers are also standard.
Full infotainment comes courtesy of the standard centre-dash seven-inch touchscreen of the 'R-LINK2' multimedia system. This includes satellite navigation with TomTom LIVE traffic updates, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, Bluetooth audio streaming and handsfree connectivity. Plus there's an Arkamys 3D Sound DAB audio system.
Outside, the Koleos 'Dynamique S Nav' sports 18-inch 'Agapi' two-tone alloy wheels and electrically- adjustable heated and folding door mirrors. Longitudinal roof bars provide a hint at the rugged off-road capabilities of the SUV. Standard equipment on the top 'Initiale Paris' flagship model includes luxurious two-tone Nappa leather, Hands Free Parking, exclusive 19-inch two-tone alloy wheels, a 13-speaker BOSE sound system, full LED headlights, heated and ventilated front seats, heated and cooling cupholders, a powered Automatic Tailgate, One-Touch easy folding rear seats, an opening panoramic sunroof and a 8.7-inch portrait screen with R-LINK2 infotainment.
