    It's one of the few SUVs you can buy at the moment without waiting an eternity. But the 2022 Renault Koleos is one of the older cars in the segment in terms of its platform. Paul Maric checks out the top-specification Koleos Intens 4x2 to see if it's any good.

    Interior

    Photos and Images of the Renault Koleos Interior

    The Koleos’ interior is vastly different to that of its X-Trail platform-mate, and has a strong familial resemblance to that of the Renault Megane. Material quality is quite good and there's a rather stylish European flair to the cabin.

    There’s a handsome, upright centre stack with either a 7.0-inch touchscreen (Life, Zen) or a portrait-oriented 8.7-inch screen (Intens).

    The infotainment system is neatly presented, though it's not the last word in sophistication – it can be quite slow to react and will at times just ignore button pushes, with key items buried in obscure menus. There are also touch-capacitive shortcut "buttons" that lack haptic feedback. Overall, the setup is fairly attractive but also rather clunky.

    Climate functions are controllable via buttons and knobs below the touchscreen. These knobs are perhaps the only overtly cheap-feeling items in the interior.

    The base of the centre stack is bracketed by two leatherette-wrapped grab handles, which lend an upscale touch.

    The instrument cluster is neatly presented, and we appreciate the ability to configure the design and colour of the information screen and its digital speedometer, critical vehicle warnings. and trip computer information.

    The Intens' colour-adjustable lighting also adds some visual drama to the interior. Changing the colour will also change the colour used on the gauge cluster and infotainment screen.

    There are some strange French quirks to the interior. For example, cruise control buttons are split between the steering wheel and the centre console. Controls for volume and media are found not on the steering wheel, but rather on a stubby bar behind the steering wheel. It takes some getting used to, but you'll get there.

    The front cupholders are quirky without being insufferable. The recess is split into four segments: two for normal-sized cups and bottles and two smaller ones for perhaps Yakults.

    Step into the back and there's ample legroom and knee room, though headroom suffers in the Intens due to its panoramic sunroof.

    You'll find three top-tether and two Isofix anchor points for child seats. The Life and Zen have a 12V outlet, while the Intens instead features two rear USB charging ports.

    Exterior

    Photos and Images of the Renault Koleos Exterior

    The Koleos' styling ties in nicely with other models in the Renault range like the Megane and Arkana, wearing distinctive lighting elements front and rear and gently curvaceous sheetmetal.

    The Life rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, with the Zen upgrading to 18s and the Intens using 19s.

    Alas, while all models have LED daytime running lights, only the Intens features LED headlights.

    Renault Koleos Colours

    What colours are available for the Renault Koleos?

    The Koleos range is available in just four colours: Millesim Red, Metallic White, Metallic Grey and Metallic Black. Unusually, the red is a no-cost option, while the monochromatic shades are an extra $800.

    Cost of Ownership

    What is the running, servicing and ownership costs of buying a Renault Koleos?

    The Koleos requires servicing every 12 months or 30,000km, whichever comes first. The mileage interval is surprisingly long for this segment, considering most rivals require servicing every 12 months or 10-15,000km.

    In addition to a five-year, unlimited kilometre warranty, Renault offers five years of capped price servicing. Each service is capped at $429 except the 120,000km service, which costs $999.

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on Renault Koleos drivability?

    While its 126kW/226Nm outputs aren't exceptional for the class, the continuously-variable transmission (CVT) does a decent job keeping the car within its peak torque and power band. Push it too hard, though, and it can get a bit noisy, though it's not the worst-sounding engine in its class.

    There’s a manual shift mode with artificially-stepped gears but you’ll have to move the gearshift as there are no paddle shifters.

    The ride is comfortable, even in the Intens with its 19-inch wheels. It never feels flustered or brittle over poor surfaces and is just as happy when rural road conditions jump from smooth bitumen to goat track.

    On the highway there isn’t a great deal of road noise, but you will begin to notice noise in the cabin from the tyres on coarse chip country roads and poorly-finished surfaces.

    Visibility out of the front and sides is good with generously sized wing mirrors and a blind spot monitor, but we found visibility out the rear to be a little compromised due to the narrow window envelope.

    The Koleos’ steering is feather-light. While that might appear a good thing for some drivers, it has the unintended consequence of making the Koleos feel somewhat vague and cumbersome to drive.

    This mid-sized SUV can feel hard to place, and there’s also no way to at least add some artificial weight to the steering via a selectable drive mode as in some rivals.

    Handling is on par with most rivals. There's a touch of body roll in corners, but otherwise it's safe and predictable, especially with the Intens' optional all-wheel drive.

    Renault Koleos Market Fit

    Where does it fit in the competitor segment?

    The priciest Renault Koleos undercuts the cheapest Peugeot 3008, so instead of going head-to-head with that other French-branded SUV, the Koleos instead dukes it out with more mainstream fare.

    That includes its corporate cousin the Nissan X-Trail, as well as the Mitsubishi Outlander that's based on the next-generation Nissan. Other rivals include the Mazda CX-5 and Toyota RAV4.

    You could also include the low-volume Citroen C5 Aircross among its direct rivals.

    Renault Koleos Sales Data

    How well has the Renault Koleos been selling?

    Until the end of October 2022, Renault sold a total of 2297 Koleos SUVS, up a substantial 72.7 per cent over the same period last year.

    Should you buy the Renault Koleos

    Is this the right car for you? Our experts buy or not guide.

    The Renault Koleos is an often overlooked mid-sized SUV. It's showing its age in some respects, particularly in its limited list of active safety and driver assist features, but it's pleasant to drive and has a more premium look inside and out than the dated X-Trail.

    We wouldn't put it at the very top of our shortlist, but it's worth considering.

    Did you know?

    The Koleos is based on the same underpinnings as the Nissan X-Trail.
