The 2017 Renault Koleos will be longer than the current model (pictured), and will offer three rows of seats.

The second generation version will be based on Nissan CMF (Common Modular Family) architecture, similar to the Kadjar, Nissan Qashqai, and Nissan X-Trail. It will be 5 meters in length, which is 360 mm longer than the Nissan X-Trail, says the report.

The model is being developed in China, and will be manufactured there as well, where it accounts for a large percentage of Renault’s sales. In comparison to the current Koleos, the Kadjar is similarly sized, but with an added third row of seats and increased length, the gap between the two will increase.
