The upcoming 2019 Renault Koleos is a company’s first crossover SUV ever. Firstly introduced in 2017, Koleos started its second-generation two years ago. Koleos is a result of a Renault-Nissan cooperation, and the new model will stay intact. After all, its second-gen is relatively new.
This crossover is larger than it was before, it offers a good performance, great capability, unique interior and a full SUV capability. The 2019 Koleos comes with five doors and it can fit up to seven passengers. The list of driver assistance features is long and even an all-wheel-drive configuration is on the cards.

The all-new 2019 Renault Koleos will come with almost no changes at all. However, this crossover is a lot different than its first-generation and that includes exterior as well. Koleos is now both wider and longer than before and the design is more attractive. The front end adds a more muscular hood with beautiful body lines.
The headlights are equipped with LED technology and a LED strips are included also. The front grille comes with four vertical slats and Renault’s emblem. Looking at it from the side and you will see additional body lines that run from the headlights to the upper corner. The rear adds a classic SUV-like look with the short overhang and the brake lights that are placed higher. The taillights are looking modern and swooped.

White stitching is included, just like the armrests. The seats with cooling and heating system are optional and you can choose numerous interior color scheme.

We are still waiting for Renault to announce any information about the engine lineup. As some rumors say, new drivetrain option is more than likely and we expect from Koleos to borrow some options from the Nissan X-Trail. A 2.0-liter that can produce 143 HP could find its place under the hood of Koleos.
A gasoline 2.5-liter with 170 HP could be on the cards as well just like the 1.6-liter diesel that returns 130 HP. An all-wheel drive will be included like every time before and a four-wheel lock system that improves the crossover’s stability. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be in the offer.
