    Exterior The Koleos represents a stylish upgrade on the already handsome Kadjar, benefitting from extra design refinements, including more widespread use of chrome detailing, for instance. And there’s a reassuring solidity to the vehicle, an attractively thick-set quality that is accentuated by a raised ride height, and a bold front end that features an eye-catching radiator grille and pleated bonnet. That being said, this is a very practical vehicle, one that comes with roof rails for oversize luggage haulage, for example.
    Jazz up your Koleos Although a very classy Solid White paint finish is applied as standard, there are plenty of optional colours to choose from, including Metallic Grey and Metallic Black. Mineral Beige brings a hint of subtle colouring, while Meissen Blue and Millesim Red put an entirely different complexion on things.
    Alloys are standard Even if you opt for the entry-level LIFE trim, the Koleos comes fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels. And the higher you move up the grades, the bigger the wheels get, with INTENS trims riding on imposing 19-inch alloys.
    Cool accoutrements The Koleos is blessed with a number of attractive fixtures as standard, such as a rakish shark fin antenna. ZEN grades add yet more desirable features, such as rear privacy glass, while INTENS trims boast a panoramic sunroof, which is power-operated, with a slide and tilt facility.
    Comfortable and capacious The Koleos offers plenty of knee and headroom in both compartments, and more than enough space to comfortably accommodate five adults on long journeys. The driver is treated to an elevated position, which offers a fine view of the road ahead. Travellers will appreciate the many useful cubby spaces that are located around the cabin, including door bins that are big enough to contain the largest of bottles. At the very back of the car is a 458-litre boot space, which increases to a considerable 1,690 litres with rear seats folded.
    Stay cool/keep warm Regardless of how the weather decides to behave, a dual-zone climate control makes it easy to arrive at an amenable temperature. And whenever you feel like experiencing the elements, a single push of a button will swiftly open a window.
    Comfortable positions Upfront, travellers are treated to adjustable seats, while rear-row occupants have the benefit of reclining positions. Mid-tier LIFE grades add power-operated functionality to the driver’s seat (and electric lumbar support) – and heated front positions (that are also ventilated with INTENS trims).
    Infotainment on the go An eight-speaker Arkamys sound system is included as standard with LIFE and ZEN grades, while INTENS trims come with an 11-speaker BOSE set-up. All models are provided with AM/FM and DAB radios, AUX and USB inputs and Bluetooth and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay connectivity.
    Performance LIFE and ZEN trims feature a 4x2 drivetrain, as do top-level INTENS grades. Alternatively, INTENS variants can be selected with a 4x4 drivetrain, which is well-worth considering if you tend to include off-road surfaces as part of your motoring routine. The Renault Koleos is powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine, which produces 226Nm of torque, delivering 0 to 100km/h in 10.4 seconds (10.7 seconds with 4x4s). And it manages a combined 6.7 litres per 100 km figure, making it efficient to run.
    Five-star safety Automobile experts ANCAP have awarded the Koleos a maximum five-star rating based on numerous crash-test scenarios and the efficacy of the passive safety features and driver aids that are included. The vehicle scored 84/100 in terms of adult-occupant protection and 79/100 as far as child-occupant protection is concerned.
    Passive safety The car is fitted with numerous passive safety features, including multiple airbags, front seatbelts with pre-tensioners and load-limiters and unfastened seatbelt alerts. And outer rear positions are issued with ISOFIX child-seat attachment points.
    Active safety Numerous driver aids are featured, such as Anti-lock Braking, Cruise Control and Lane-departure Warning System. Also included is Forward Collision Warning, an advanced system that continuously monitors the speed of the Koleos and that of the vehicle in front. If a minimum safe distance between the two vehicles is encroached upon, the driver is instantly alerted.
