      Renault to launch Koleos on September 8: Edit - Launched at 22.99 L

      Renault Koleos to be launched in September 3rd week

      According to IAB, there has been slight change of plan from Renault. Originally Koleos was suppose to launch on October with a Petrol engine but looks like Renault has re-visited their strategy and planning to bring Diesel instead of Petrol as the raising Petrol cost is a big worry with Indian customers. Also currently there are no takers for Petrol SUV, Renault doesn't wants to come with out a model with Petrol version and spoil their fortune.

      As per the reports, Koleos will have a 2 Liter 4 cylinder turbo charged engine with 150 BHP under the hood. Thanks to Renault for not employing the same 1.5 DCI engine in Koleos.

      Renault launches the facelifted Koleos in India right after its international premiere in Frankfurt in the middle of September making ours the first to receive it. Renault has given India the top priority (ahead of European markets) even though this isn’t a volumes model, and that’s good to see. Renault will load up the India-spec Koleos with all the gizmos from the European model. It will be priced at just over 20 lakh rupees.

      Renault India will be launching the new Koleos crossover on September 8th. The Renault crossover was first thought to get delayed until next year but according to latest reports the SUV will arrive sooner than expected. The Koleos will be placed among rival products from Mitsubishi, Toyota and Chevrolet and will be Renault’s first product in this segment after parting ways with Mahindra & Mahindra. Looking at the drastic drop in popularity of petrol powered cars, Renault India will most probably launch the Koleos with a diesel engine only.

      However, an optional automatic transmission will be an added bonus. Renault will opt for the 2.0 litre DCi diesel engine for the Koleos crossover. The 4-cylinder engine puts out 110 PS of maximum power and a meaty 320 torques. Also, we will get the facelifted model of the Renault Koleos. The new model gets a wider front grille with a bit of chrome thrown in for a more upmarket feel. The headlights and tail lights have also been redesigned. The front and rear bumpers are also new with new mirrors with integrated turn-indicators.

      The 5-Seater Koleos crossover from Renault could be priced around 20 lakh rupees thus competing directly with SUVs like the Toyota Fortuner which has been the leader in this segment. Apart from this, the Koleos will be pitted against the Chevrolet Captiva and the Mitsubishi Out lander. The features you would get on the Koleos are Hands-free entry and ignition, electronic parking brake, automatic headlights and wipers and Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control systems on the 4×4 version.

      The Renault Duster on the other hand will be placed below the Koleos and will be placed in the Rs 10 lakh bracket as an entry-level crossover. The French automaker already has the Renault Fluence in its product portfolio for India. With the addition of two new products to its line-up, Renault India will be hoping to establish its foothold in the Indian market.

      Renault Koleos launched

      Renault has launched the much awaited Koleos crossover in India. The launch event was organized in the capital city, Delhi which was attended by media persons from across the country. The Renault Koleos is the second product from the French automaker after parting ways with Mahindra & Mahindra earlier this year. The Renault Koleos has been priced at INR 22.99 Lakhs ex-showroom Delhi.

      A few notable features on the Renault Koleos Crossover includes Cruise Control, a push button start, dual zone air conditioning and rear AC vents. A nice touch on the Koleos is the dual opening hatchback which is a superb convenience feature. The Koleos also comes with an intelligent four wheel drive system, which automatically deploys in slippery detection once the Crossover’s sensors detect any wheelspin or loss of traction or grip. The 5 seater Koleos also comes with a collapsible front left seat, to increase leg room at the rear as and when required. The Koleos is also loaded with safety features like ABS and EBD as standard. You also get 6 airbags, which makes the Koleos a very safe car to be in. Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist are the other features which you’d find very useful when the going gets difficult. Also, you get parking sensors, keyless entry and a Bose sound system to round off the long list of features that Renault has kitted out the Koleos with.

      Renault India for their part are expanding dealerships, whose count is expected to reach 40 by this year’s end, from the existing 14.

      Damn...Another overambitious manufacturer with an overpriced 5-seater X'over.
      I think we are still at the mercy of Tata or Mahindra for a decently priced 4x4 SUV

      Would be interesting to see a comparo with Captive AT AWD though...

      This can't beat the Toyota Fortuner market with almost similar design(look wise IMO)

      Today Koleos was launched in Pune. I was present for launch Event. It was mentioned that Koleos is being launched first in India. Rest of the world will get it later.

      Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and then beat you with experience.
