Renault has given the Koleos a mid-life update for 2020 along with the introduction of its new 5:5:5 Easy Life Ownership Program.
The refresh MY2020 Koleos gains a more ‘muscular’ styling featuring a restyled front grille, more chrome bits, broader skid plates, LED fog-lights and new ‘Black Diamond’ 19-inch wheels for the rang-topping Intens.
There are also six new premium paint options available for an extra $900 including a new colour called Millesun Red pictured here.
The slow selling 2.0-litre turbodiesel AWD variant has been dropped, with all four variants now powered by the 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine supplied by Nissan and shared with the X-Trail.
Inside, Renault has updated its touchscreen interface with Apple CarPlay now taking up the entire portrait screen. However, Android Auto users are being left out as it is still displayed as landscape in the middle of the screen.
Interior ambience has also been given a lift with the addition of ambient lighting with five different colours.
Standard features include high-speed autonomous emergency braking with forward collision warning and lane-departure warning. Zen and Intens variants gain 360 degree camera and blind spot warning, while the Intens additionally gets high-beam assist and east park assist automatic parking feature.
What’s more significant is the introduction of Renault Australia’s 5:5:5 Easy Life Ownership Program with the new Koleos that comes with five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, five-year/150,000 capped price service and five years’ roadside asssit.
The Koleos’ servicing cost is capped at $429 per service during the warranty period and includes air filter, pollen filter, accessory drive belt, coolant replacement, spark plug replacement and brake fluid replacement.
