The new Renault Koleos is destined to arrive in Malaysia this September, and we now have more details on the local-spec version of the five-seat SUV when it is launched here.

We managed to obtain this brochure of the new Koleos from Renault Malaysia’s Glenmarie showroom, which also happens to host a replica of the 2016 Renault RS 16 Formula One race car until August 7, 2016.

As previously reported, a four-cylinder petrol engine that provides 170 PS at 6,000 rpm and 226 Nm at 4,400 rpm will power the Malaysian-spec Koleos, paired to an X-Tronic CVT. The brochure does not provide details on the engine’s capacity, but based on the power figures, it is most likely the 2.5 litre unit as seen in the T32 X-Trail.

In terms of performance, the Koleos has a top speed of 200 km/h, and accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 9.5 seconds. Following the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC), the SUV consumes just 8.1 litres per 100 km.

On the exterior, the Koleos will come equipped with full LED headlamps (with C-shaped DRLs), 18-inch Argonaute alloy wheels, front and rear parking sensors, plus a rearview camera.

Inside, there is a powered seat (with lumbar adjustment) for the driver, one-touch easy-folding rear seats, ambient lighting, a 7-inch colour TFT instrument display, R-Link 2 infotainment system with a 8.7-inch colour touchscreen. As for safety, the airbag count stands at six, and there’s even a blind spot warning system.

Ahead of its September debut, Renault Malaysia is expected to announce the start of order taking for the new Koleos soon. Each purchase will be backed by a five-year manufacturer warranty. The important question now is, how much?
