Expected to be launched in September in Malaysia.
The 2016 Renault Koleos recently went on sale in Australia, and now, it’s soon going to be launched in Malaysia. The company has just announced that it is now accepting bookings for the second generation Renault Koleos in Malaysia.
In Malaysia, the 2016 Renault Koleos will be available only with the 2.5-litre QR25DE naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 170 PS at 6,000 rpm and 226 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. This is the same engine that’s offered in the Nissan X-Trail as well, and is paired to the X-Tronic continuously variable transmission. Unlike Australia, Renault won’t be offering the all-new Koleos with an all-wheel drive system in Malaysia.
Noteworthy features of the Malaysian-spec 2016 Renault Koleos include Pure Vision full LED headlamps, daytime running lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, front (six) and rear (six) parking sensors, 7-inch TFT screen for the instrument panel, R-LINK 2 infotainment system with an 8.7-inch touchscreen display and an 8-speaker 3D sound system by Arkamys. Safety and assistance features include 6 airbags, ESC, ASR, ABS, EBD, EBA and Blind Sport Warning.
The 2016 Renault Koleos will be available in Meissen Blue, Universal White, Black Metallic and Grey Metallic colours, and priced at RM 1,72,800 (INR 28,69,974.3) in Malaysia. The new generation Renault Koleos is expected to be launched in India by end-2017.
