TC Euro has announced the arrival of the Renault Koleos Signature. Priced at RM198,800, the two-wheel drive SUV undercuts the top-spec 4WD‘s price of RM209,000 by RM10k, but the Signature comes with a few more goodies. It also represents a RM16,000 jump over the entry-level 2WD model.

So, for that premium, what does it get, then? Well, like the 4WD, it gets full-LED Pure Vision headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, 8.7-inch colour touchscreen, seven-inch colour TFT instrument display, leather upholstery, powered driver’s seat (with lumbar adjustment), eight-speaker Arkamys 3D sound system and dual-zone automatic climate control with rear air-con vents.

On top of that the Signature moniker brings about a full glass panoramic sunroof, brown leather seats with contrast stitching, and R-Link 2 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionalities. It adds a powered tailgate as well – the base 2WD does not come with this feature.

Nothing is changed performance-wise, so the same 2.5 litre QR25DE naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine will resume propulsion duties. The engine makes 170 PS at 6,000 rpm and 226 Nm at 4,400 rpm and is paired with an X-Tronic CVT automatic.

In terms of safety, the Koleos Signature gets six airbags (dual front, side and curtain), Isofix child seat anchors, ESP, traction control, ABS (with EBD and BA), all-round parking sensors, blind spot warning system, rear view camera and hill start assist – all of which are found on the base Koleos 2WD.

Lastly, it comes with a five-year full manufacturer’s warranty with unlimited mileage. Colour options available include Marron Red, Universal White, Meissen Blue, Grey Metallic and Black Metallic.
