2017 Renault Koleos is all set to go on display at the upcoming Beijing Motor Show from April 25, 2016, to May 4, 2016. Ahead of that, spy shots of the new gen Koleos have been leaked online.
New gen 2017 Renault Koleos is expected to be larger than the model it replaces. The 2017 Renault Koleos sports a new face, new C-shaped LED headlights and a chrome front grille. Earlier spy shots of interior design reveal that it is strikingly similar to that seen on the new Renault Megane. Also, extended dimensions could also make the new Koleos the largest Renault SUV to date.
2017 Renault Koleos is built on the Renault-Nissan Alliance Common Module Family (CMF) platform. It measures 4,672mm in length and 1,843mm in width while it will sit on the same wheelbase as seen on X-Trail measuring 2,705mm. In China, the new Koleos will be offered in a choice of two engines.
The base engine will be a 2.0-liter gasoline engine offering 150 hp while a 2.5-liter gasoline engine will also be an option, capable of 186hp peak power. Both engines will get mated to 6-speed manual or to an automatic transmission while they will be offered in front and all-wheel drive systems.
2017 Renault Koleos will enter production at the Renault-Nissan JV in Dongfeng while for international markets, production could be carried out at the Renault Busan plant in South Korea.
