2014 Renault Koleos
Renault was not at all popular when they launched the Koleos SUV in the year 2011 which was based on the crossover design but after the European car maker launched their product Duster in the year 2012, which we all know is a compact SUV it became popular instantly and people started to gain some trust on this particular manufacturer. Now after almost 3 years Renault once again want to take a second chance with their premium SUV Koleos and decided to launch a facelifted version soon in our Indian market. The facelifted version of the SUV was reveled at the sixth International Buenos Aires Motor Show.
The Koleos when launched earlier had to face some serious competition from the segment leader Toyota Fortuner which was a more rugged and tough looking SUV and quite frankly the Koleos looked like its younger sister. Now that the times has changed and Indian people have become quite open and welcoming new brands and their products, it is good time for Renault to gain their foothold in the Indian premium SUV segment.
The Renault Koleos was always a powerful SUV and the facelifted version although is powered by the same 2.0-litre diesel engine but it now generates even more power and torque than its predecessor which is good news for many but does the new facelifted version have what it takes to compete with other SUV’s of its segment?
UPDATE 29/01/14 Renault launched the facelifted Koleos in the Indian market today. The prices has been provided below.
