After the recently launched Fluence saloon, Renault is gearing up for the next launch in India, the Koleos SUV. India will get a facelifted version, here’s some solid proof. Renault India has just updated its website and has also included a few details about the Koleos Crossover. First of all, the Renault Koleos Crossover will be launched in October 2011.
The new Renault Koleos will be powered by a 2.0-liter diesel motor mated to a 6-speed automatic. The softroader features Bose sound system, leather seats, cruise control and 4-wheel drive system. In fact, the Koleos is the result of inputs from each of the brands in the Renault-Nissan -Samsung collaboration. While Renault handled styling, Nissan did the engineering using the X-trail’s platform as the base. In Korea it is sold there as the Samsung QM5.
Depending on how Renault prices the SUV, it could be quite an attractive alternative to the more popular SUV’s now available.
