The ongoing Beijing Motor Show has played host to the debut of an all-new generation of the Renault Koleos. In a bid to keep in line with its global crossover range, Renault has completely redesigned the Koleos and as a result, this new model looks a lot more striking than before.

The new Koleos is built using the CMF C/D platform which is also used in a variety of Renault-Nissan cars including the X-Trail, the Kadjar and the Qashqai. As for the drivetrain, the Koleos gets two petrol and two diesel engine options, with power ranging between 128bhp and 175bhp. These engines will either be paired with a 6-speed manual or the brand’s X-Tronic CVT ‘gearbox.

With a 2,710mm wheelbase, the new Koleos is claimed to have class-leading interior space among Europe’s D-segment SUVs.

The all-wheel drive system offers a choice between 2WD (front-wheel drive) and 4WD auto modes. The latter automatically splits the torque between the front and rear wheels. At slow speeds in low-grip conditions, a third mode called 4WD lock allows the driver to select permanent all-wheel drive.

Renault has confirmed that the new Koleos will be built in their existing plant in Busan, South Korea. The China-spec model, however, will be built locally in Renault’s Wuhan facility. The car will go on sale later this year in China and in the rest of the markets (India likely) next year.
