TC Euro Cars (TCEC) is previewing the new Renault Koleos facelift at the ongoing Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE), with two CBU variants set to be offered to customers when the SUV is officially launched.

The first of the two options is the standard Koleos, which will go for RM179,888 (on-the-road without insurance), while the range-topper is the Koleos Signature that is priced at RM189,888. Included in the price is a five-year/unlimited-mileage warranty and five-year/100,000-km free maintenance with each purchase.

As an alternative to a conventional hire purchase agreement, TCEC is also offering the Koleos through Renault Subscription, with plans that start from RM2,299 a month. The monthly fee is inclusive of road tax, insurance and regular servicing, with an annual mileage cap in place – this can be enhanced with optional add-ons.

On the car itself, both variants are powered by a 2.5 litre naturally-aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 171 PS at 6,000 rpm and 226 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm. The mill is mated to an X-Tronic CVT driving the front wheels, and offers a combined fuel consumption of 8.1 litres per 100 km.

Design updates that are part of the facelift include a revised front grille with new chrome trimmings, which are flanked by Pure Vision LED headlamps and C-shaped LED daytime running lights.

There’s also new trim piece running across the width of the front bumper that divides the upper and lower aprons – the latter sees redesigned fog lamp enclosures, smaller fog lamps and a more pronounced skid plate. Moving to the rear of the SUV, there’s a silver-painted skid plate placed just below revised chrome garnish that doubles as faux exhausts.

Aside from the standard LED lighting units, both variants sports chrome accents on their exterior, along with a powered tailgate and satin grey roof rails. While the base model gets 18-inch wheels (with 225/60 series tyres), the Signature is fitted with larger, 19-inch pieces (with 225/55 series tyres) instead.

New exterior colours have been introduced as well, those being Amethyst Black, Millesime Red, and Ultra Silver. The existing Universal White and Black Metallic colours are retained as well.

On the inside, the 8.7-inch R-Link 2 infotainment system now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while the rear seats have a two-step reclining function. Both variants also get Riviera leather upholstery, albeit in different colours – black for the base option and brown for the Signature (with satin chrome trimmings).

Other equipment shared across the two include powered front seats (with adjustable driver’s side lumbar) dual-zone climate control, a seven-inch TFT gauge display, keyless entry and start, an eight-speaker Arkamys sound system, ambient lighting, front and rear parking sensors, Eco Mode drive selector, a reverse camera, passive cruise control, ESP, ABS, EBD and hill start assist. The Signature also gets a powered panoramic sunroof, which isn’t found on the base variant.

It should be noted that the car on display (as seen in these photos) isn’t representative of what customers will get, as it is fitted with the smaller wheels and a Bose sound system. However, everything is exactly as specified above.
