    Renault Koleos Review | Top Gear

    Suavely-styled SUV packed with advanced safety kit. The second-generation Renault Koleos adds the third, and final, string to Renault's crossover-style SUV bow, joining the Captur and Kadjar to fight its corner in a sector of the market increasingly saturated with rivals.

    The well-received latter is likely to provide stiff competition for the Koleos, not least because it provides the option of a seven-seat format. Renault justifies its decision not to consider more than five seats on the basis that proportion and styling was more important, rather than 'dressing up the hunchback', and that the addition of an extra tier would simply cramp second row space.

    That latter option - which Renault's dubbed X-Tronic transmission - with its attendant 2. Happily, then, this is are rare example of CVT that doesn't set the engine bellowing off round the rev counter while the car catches up in its own good time.

    Seven artificial steps built into the system make a pretty decent fist of more closely matching engine revs to acceleration, which will please old school automatic aficionados, and their ears. For all the easy driving charms of the X-Tronic transmission, the manual 1. The gearchange is light and easy, the engine more than willing. Both the steering and handling of this lighter variant feel somewhat more engaging, and it offers nigh on 10mpg more in the fuel economy stakes.

    The model line-up is equally straightforward; that choice of powertrains available in just two trim levels - Dynamique S Nav or Signature Nav. With the former boasting a respectably lavish standard equipment specification, it's unsurprising that Renault expects it to be the favoured option in the UK.

    Full leather upholstery, heated front seats and a powered tailgate aside, the only real goodie that Signature Nav brings to the party is the larger 8.

    You get a vast amount of driver-assistance tech such as Automatic Emergency Braking , blindspot monitor , lane-departure warning and traffic sign recognition. Such a large standard kit list means optional extras are thin on the ground. However, customers can spec the Climate Pack only available on Signature Nav which adds ventilated front seats plus heated rear seats, steering wheel and front windscreen should they wish.
