New Renault Koleos is equipped with the new in-dash Renault R-Link multimedia system complete with seven-inch touchscreen display. Renault R-Link permits the selection of one of 26 languages and incorporates all the expected multimedia functions, from navigation, radio and telephony to Bluetooth® connectivity and audio streaming, as well as connectivity for portable music-playing devices. It also proposes services associated with the vehicle’s own systems, plus access to the Renault R-Link Store which has a catalogue of more than 50 applications (depending on country) that can be downloaded directly to the vehicle or using a computer.
Another important new feature of the car is the Blind Spot Warning (BSW) function which provides a visual alert whenever a vehicle is detected in the blind spot to facilitate safe overtaking.
A reversing camera combined with rear parking sensors provides a real-time image of what is behind the car on the R-Link system’s display. A hands-free card, Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control functions, and Bose audio also figure on the extensive list of high-end equipment available for New Renault Koleos.
The two diesel engines available for the model (150 and 175hp) boast particularly low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions
