RENAULT KOLEOS– Features
Safety featuresThere are six airbags in the Renault Koleos, with the consumer-expected passive safety system such as electric stability control, hill start assist, and traction control. Unfortunately, there is no option for Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as adaptive cruise control.
The driver is alerted of objects in the blind spot via the monitoring system. The rearview camera also projects in the 8.7-inch infotainment display with parking sensors on both front and rear bumpers. Only the Signature Plus variant with the exterior bodykit comes with a Digital Video Recorder. For those who are curious, the Renault Koleos uses a full-sized 17-inch spare tyre.
Comfort features Standard features in the Renault Koleos includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic air-conditioning with rear duct, front cup holders with cool ventilation, cruise control, powered front seats, black combination leather upholstery, ambient lighting, automatic ‘walk-away’ door locking as well as the slim Renault Smart
Key Card access with start-stop button and handsfree powered tailgate operation.
The Signature variants meanwhile add more premium front seats with larger relaxing headrests, adjustable thigh support extension and ventilation function. More light also enters the Signature variant thanks to the two-piece panoramic moonroof.
The driver’s seat also gets massage function as well as storage memory for seat position. As for the material used, Nappa leather in Sand Grey colour is used for upholstering the seats. It looks premium and inviting, certainly requiring extra care with wearing jeans or heavily dyed clothing. There are two USB charging ports for the rear occupants.
InfotainmentThe Renault Koleos is factory fitted with a large and uncommon portrait-oriented 8.7-inch capacitive touchscreen infotainment system. Called R-Link2, it features a navigation feature as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.
Occupants can operate the large display like a tablet, such as swiping, pinching and drag-and-drop the icons/shortcuts. Driving information is also displayed here.
The sound is meanwhile pumped out to an 8-speaker setup with 3D audio processing done by Arkamys.
