Moments ago Renault India launched the much awaited Koleos crossover at the Taj Palace Hotel in New Delhi. This also turns out to be the international premiere for the car which will be shown to Europeans at the Frankfurt Motor Show next week.

The single-variant Koleos is priced at 22.99 lakh rupees (ex-showroom Delhi).

Renault Koleos India launch

By the time the car is shown in Europe where it is a highly sought-after crossover, deliveries would have begun in India. Renault India, despite knowing that the Koleos won't set sales charts on fire, has to be appreciated for launching an internationally absent model as we seldom enjoy the privilege of "India first." Its stable mates Santa Fe and Fortuner took years to arrive here post launch at overseas or home markets.

Renault Koleos features for India

Split tail gate, seat back tables, all mode 4x4 i-transmission (auto mode, lock mode and 2WD mode), cruise control and speed limiter, rear parking proximity sensors, smart access card and start-stop button, dual zone air-conditioning, premium beige upholstery, 6-way power adjustable driver seat, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, rear AC vent, BOSE audio system with 8 speakers, Bluetooth with USB/iPod connectivity, rain and light sensors, ABS, EBD and Brake assist, front anti whiplash head rest, ISOFIX child seat mounting points, 4 anti-pinch windows.
