renault koleos

Renault Koleos made its world debut in India on September 8th, pipping the official launch in China by a few days. To be first in the world may not be of much significance to Indian customers but it’s a statement by the French car maker on the importance of the Indian market. Powering the car is a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine producing 150bhp of power and is mated to a six speed automatic gearbox. While the figures are impressive on paper, out on the road the Koleos lacks punch. The mid range feels a tad weak and you miss that strong, spikey surge of a turbo-diesel when you get into the meat of the power band.

However, the linear and lag-free nature of the engine encourages you to drive without a sense of urgency. And that's just as well, because when you rev it hard and past 3800rpm and there's a distinct vibration that creeps into the cabin. The gearbox can be a bit slow for spirited driving but shifting to manual mode enhances the experience dramatically
