Renault not for reinventing itself. With each new model proposes a change of scenery that goes far beyond the projection replacement with a new one. Espace, Talisman, Scénic... are examples it. And does the Koleos (The link you can see all its range and price) SUV passing a compact size (As it was launched in 2008) to transmuted in one medium-large, gaining not only size but also sophistication and packaging.

In fact, the new Renault Koleos It is, looks and feels much more car what it was and so it is ready to be measured with the new Skoda Kodiaq or 5008, but also Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jeep Cherokee... And even it is considered as a possible Premium SUV as an alternative to the Audi Q5, GLC Mercedes or Volvo XC60, for example, if we consider the highest equipment level, Refined Initiale Paris. Moreover, so exclusive that only the Spanish Renault Espace and Talisman reached. Renault Koleos

Calling for the field

One feature that Renault Koleos makes different most SUVs like it's your commitment to effective off-road. In a sense, reconquista roads with a chassis and transmission settings the prevailing qualities abandoned by other SUV. Advertising model and winks at it and, in the real world, is based on a Free correct height above the ground. Or the large suspension travel, vital for the wheels to maintain contact with the ground in rough places and, thereby, traction benefits.

This is one of the specialties of the new Renault SUV. turns to All Mode 4x4-i, a drive system total leaving the driver to interact with it. So, you find it possible to choose between a 2WD mode always front-wheel drive and two which already connects the rear axle, Auto 4WD or 4WD Lock.

In the first, as most SUV, engine power between automatically axes is transferred by the grip available to the wheels: the force on the front axle, dry asphalt, will range from 70 percent to throttle at the start, 90 or 100 percent when we accelerate going launched. Then, the lock at low speeds up to 40 km / h- center differential clutch is closed and thus the two shafts turn together: the distribution of traction on firm adherent bit is provided from the time of start, and it goes without even the slightest slip of the front to get those as much force to the rear wheels. This advantage is better spent with other off-road tires: those that are carried before, more suitable for the road.

Renault Koleos dCiAs well the suspension is key to the Koleos more suitable than others to move out of the asphalt or when we give with one in poor condition. No doubt that does not contribute to reactions too agile direction changes, either in slow or fast corners; and we will notice, however, not all bacheo quality lazing in the footsteps of guards that we would like, for example. But that definition of the suspension makes the comfortable Koleos on corrugated asphalt or dirt tracks, Even management can be more appropriate than others that are faster for driving on track, his favorite terrain along the motorways.

And dynamically?

Dynamically amply fulfills its mission, and perhaps the only aspect to improve is their braking. And it is that although the touch, resistance or mordant brakes are good, perhaps the distances obtained are not so ... although it is a large SUV, which always has volume.

The most powerful diesel range is This 2.0 dCi 175 hp. Since its launch, with 150 hp, it worked smooth and very noisy, in addition to elastic. Has a Stop / Start fast at startup. In fact, at the exits at that speed striking the lowest speed with which operates the torque converter. It is coupled to an automatic continuously variable type, for which are defined seven-speed electronically, although their relationships are endless, really. This results in softness comparable with the best automatic, because if it accelerates smoothly, no jumps between gears warn and give rise to a fluid speed of the engine by pacing at speed. After accelerating more decisively, because we want to win faster speed, the control unit determines that the change is necessary to position the engine at a higher rate. Then it looks like any other automatic transmission, it reduces one or more speeds, though not very fast.

Great consumption

Despite the fame of these boxes, the consumption of this Renault Koleos is magnificent. They have to say too much the lightness of SUV and, of course, 2.0 dCi engine for such good results. The provision, by comparison, is more discreet, but does not prevent the measure, among other similar SUV, with the Jaguar F-Pace or Land Rover Discovery Sport, both with the 2.0d, beating the first recoveries and the second also during acceleration.
