The Renault Koleos successor will be based on the CMF platform and could get 1.5-liter and 1.6-liter engines.

The 7-seat Koleos replacement will feature the company’s latest design philosophy that influences the Renault EspaceRenault Talisman and the Renault Megane. The rear-end has a shark-fin antenna, roof-mounted spoiler, and Talisman-like C-Shaped LED taillamps.

The magazine snippet speculates that the next generation crossover will measure 5 meters in overall length, which is longer than the Renault Kadjar (4.45 m).
