The new generation Renault Koleos entered the SA market in February 2019.  "It has been well received by virtue of its extremely competitive pricing for a high-end SUV, loaded with technologically advanced features," according to Renault.

The Koleos is embodied by a powerful design with all the stylistic cues Renault’s new identity. A refined interior equipped with the segment’s very best journey-enhancing features, marked by premium quality and extremely generous space.

Uncompromised safety standards with 5-star NCAP certification June 2019 has seen further product enhancements to the New Koleos Dynamique versions, for improved convenience and comfort, namely the addition of a Hands-free Power Tailgate & Electric Parking Brake.

Hands-free power tailgate

Through use of your remote key or placing your foot underneath the rear bumper; the motorised tailgate opens and closes automatically providing you with easy access within just 5 seconds to the 464 litre boot. It can also be closed automatically, by means of the close switch situated in the boot lid.

Electronic parking brake: 

This additional enhancement replaces the manual foot brake. The electronic parking brake immobilises the vehicle when the engine is completely switched off. The brake is then gradually released according to the engine torque or a change in elevation, for added driving convenience. Peace of Mind comes standard with the New Renault Koleos
