Posted on: Jan 29, 2014 - 10:16am IST
Ahead of its Indian premiere at the Auto Expo, prices and details of the refreshed Renault Koleos are available. The Koleos has not been a volume seller for the French carmaker in India. Hence, Renault hopes to increase sales of the crossover by introducing a cut-price entry-level variant.
Until now, the Koleos in India was available as a 4×4 only, that too with an automatic transmission. The facelifted model will see the addition of a 4×2 MT and a 4×4 MT variant apart from the 4×4 AT variant. All variants are powered by a 2.0-liter diesel engine, which for the first time will be assembled at Renault-Nissan’s Chennai plant.
While the 4×4 variants have their power and torque outputs at 173 PS and 360 Nm respectively, the 4×2 will only produce 150 PS and 320 Nm. Power is handled by a 6-speed manual transmission in the manual variants, and a 6-speed automatic transmission in the top-end variant.
The 4×2 will do 0-100 km/h in 11.5 seconds, the 4×4 MT will do it in 9.9 seconds while the AT does it in 11.9 seconds. The ARAI rated fuel economy stands at 17.15 km/l for the 4×2, 16.26 km/l for the 4×4 MT and 14.56 km/l for the 4×4 AT.
In terms of features, the base model gets single-tone alloy wheels, while the 4x4s get dual-tone wheels. Other features that have been deleted on the 4×2 are the BOSE audio system, ESP, Hill Start Assist, Hill Descent Control, side and curtain airbags, electric seat adjustment and leather seats.
