    Gweru - Renault Zimbabwe through Duly Motors will be releasing the all-new Renault Koleos next month.
    The new Koleos is delivering a blend of robust SUV cues with refinements and features associated with large saloon cars. 
    It is an SUV that packs all the styling cues and capabilities associated with the segment.  In keeping with the Renault design strategy introduced by Laurens van den Acker, the new KOLEOS is covered by design pillar ‘EXPLORE,’ which stands for robustness and a taste for adventure. It was the pursuit of these qualities that inspired Renault’s designers to give the new Koleos taut, powerful, muscular lines.
    It has classic SUV design signs like door protective mouldings, Large-diameter wheels (up to 18 inches) and aluminium roof bars.
    The Renault Koleos has a 213mm ground clearance and approach and departure angles of 19 and 26 degrees ensuring go-anywhere ability.
    It also has an elevated driving position which offers excellent visibility as compared to a traditional sedan. Its driving position is 150mm higher, a reassuring feature that is highly prized by SUV buyers.
    Koleos has a tall, wide dashboard intended to give the driver and passenger a sense of safety and protection. Hand grips either side of the centre console echo the world of off-road motoring while imbuing the interior with a sporty feel.
    The line stretching from the top of the dashboard to the rear of the armrest is one of the highlights of the new Koleos interior configuration. This central line suggests power and the world of all-wheel drive motoring.
    The wide centre console ensures there is a comfortable distance between the driver and front passenger.
    A full LED lighting signature recalling that of Renault’s latest models, the cohesion of the model’s overall design extends to the front and rear lights.
    With knee room of 289mm, the new KOLEOS does not only outclasses its rivals but also provides rear passengers with generous head room, shoulder room and elbow room.
     The second row seats of the new Koleos can be heated, with a choice of two temperatures.
    In addition to its benchmark cabin space, the new Koleos boasts a large modular boot and numerous handy stowage solutions.
    A 542 dm3 VDA boot (equivalent to 624 litres), plus a clever removable floor positioned at the same height as the boot, which forms a flat floor.  Handles inside the boot enable the 60/40-split rear bench seat to be folded in an instant, freeing up a total carrying capacity of 1,690 dm3 VDA. 35 litres of additional stowage, including an 11-litre glove box and a five-litre cubby in the centre console.
    The new Renault Koleos is supported by a generous 3 years or 100,000 km warranty.  Full after-sales support is available from Duly Motors Gweru.
