Renault is planning to introduce a second generation of the Koleos as the model in question is said to be officially introduced in a couple of years.
The announcement hasn’t been made official just yet and it’s actually part of a report published by Car Advice, who has spoken to Justin Hocevar, the Renault Australia managing director. According to our source, the new generation of the Renault Koleos is two years away from rolling off the assembly line and by the time it will reach its future buyers, it will be almost nine years old.
The 2017 Renault Koleos will basically be based on the Nissan X-Trail and it will be getting the CMF (Common Module Family) architecture which is developed by the Renault Nissan alliance. The model will stand above the current Captur in terms of size and pricing and it should be significantly upgraded. The Renault Koleos has been introduced back in 2007 and it’s a compact crossover based on the Nissan C platform. The model is related to the X-Trail and it’s currently assembled in South Korea, India and Russia. The engine lineup includes the 2.5 liter I4 16V and the 2.0 liter dCi diesel, connected to either a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic or a CVT.
