Renault Koleos 2023 is a crossover in the top Premium Plus configuration.

Past models Koleos from French manufacturer Renault suffered a commercial failure, which the company did not deny.

However, the French did not take a cardinal decision and remove from production the failed brand.

Instead, the developers decided to perform a deep restyling procedure.


Constructors together with the designers made the external appearance of the «new» car tightened, making it no less beautiful.

Previously, the company has already carried out a facial modernization, and therefore this is the second procedure.

The revealed flaws have been corrected. The body of «updated» Renault Koleos has increased in size, and if compare with its older brother, it became more massive.

Designers didn’t have to resort to drastic changes because the former stylistics didn’t cause any complaints. For this reason, the changes in appearance, if there are any, are insignificant.

First of all it concerns the front bumper — now it is slightly lifted and includes a large air intake.

The designers slightly revised the geometry of the radiator grille, adding dynamism.

Headlights, in turn, also underwent minor changes — the headlights are now neat and in harmony with the overall look of the front of the car.

The profile side is still recognizable, although there are chrome panels on both sides, which only benefited, becoming a design flavor of style.

The wheel rims not only got a new pattern, but also dropped extra weight.

This technological solution should provide better ride and handling of the vehicle. The rear end of the body is unaffected by the changes — here the taillights have the same shape.

Interior and equipment

Unlike the exterior, the interior was subjected to massive revision.

Developers have analyzed the numerous feedback from buyers of past models and included more quality materials in the range.

On the front panel is a large touch-screen display of the multimedia system R-link 2 measuring about 9″. The complex itself is equipped with voice control.

On both sides there are large ventilation deflectors and two smaller ones on the edges of the panel. Below the screen is the control unit of the climate system.

The steering wheel contains several blocks with keys to control a number of functions. Just behind the multicool is a modern digital instrument panel. Bose acoustics includes 12 speakers and a powerful amplifier.

The manufacturer has paid due attention to the seats — the materials are only of high quality, and the side inserts provide a comfortable fit.

The seats are also equipped with heating, electric adjustment, massage and ventilation. Rear row passengers are deprived of these amenities. The interior trim is available in three color variations — black, gray and brown.
