Renault offers a surprising package with the versatile Koleos SUV. TMR spent a week with the mid-range Dynamique specification to see how well it utilised its charm. Thankfully though, the materials have an appealing look and feel with plenty of soft-textured plastics.

    There were no untoward noises and all panels gaps and closures were even. Some interior parts however seemed prone to marking, so the test of time with a young family may not be so kind to the Koleos. The commanding view from inside the Koleos is helped by a very low dash and steering wheel. It opens up fantastic forward-vision for the driver and front seat passenger.

    The upright seats are large and wide, not heavily bolstered and a little broader up top than they are in the seat base, but still comfortable. Rear seats can be flipped out of the way from the seatback or from the boot and the seat cushions flip up to allow a flat floor. Boot access is through a handy split tailgate, which is strong enough to be used as an impromptu spectator seat, and despite a high floor boot space in generous. Diesel Koleos models run a 2.

    Outputs measure kW of power at rpm and Nm of torque from rpm. Performance is lacking a little until rpm - then the engine hits its stride and feels much more comfortable.

    Though there is little vibration just a bare hint at idle , on the road the diesel orchestra can be heard even at lower engine speeds. Put it under load and it gets a little more intrusive. Thankfully the Koleos offers a soft, comfortable ride capable of blotting out the rough and tumble of Australian B-roads.

    Suspension hardware comprises segment-typical MacPherson front struts and independent multi-link rear. The four-wheel ventilated disc brakes of the Koleos are well set up, not too grabby at low speeds but providing strong stopping power under hard braking. Front, side and curtain airbags, front load-limiting pretensioning seatbelts with height adjust, front active-head-restraints, load-limiting rear seatbelts, brake assist, electronic brakeforce distribution, traction control, electronic stability control tuned for off-road conditions, hill-descent control, reverse parking sensors and selectable all-wheel-drive.
