Renault's new Koleos gets a raft of improvements including cleaner engines, but no UK sales planned

Renault has unveiled the facelifted version of the Koleos, ahead of its official launch later on in the year.

At the front of the car, the new Koleos gets revised styling, with the addition of a chrome grille, slimmer headlights and LED-integrated door mirrors.

Inside, new upholsteries and trims complement the exterior changes, including the introduction of a “modern, more stylish speedometer housing and display,” according to Renault.

Available features include an electronic parking brake, automatic headlight and windscreen wipers and a sat-nav system. The 4x4 versions of the Renault Koleos also get Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control.

Power units come in three guises – 148bhp or 172bhp versions of the M9R diesel engine, or the 168bhp petrol engine – with the entry-level diesel powered versions emitting a claimed 148g/km of CO2. Emissions for the larger diesel variant are claimed to be 166g/km of CO2.

There are, however, no plans to bring the new Renault Koleos to the UK.
