2008 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Renault Koleos

The Koleos marks Renault’s first venture into the booming world of 4×4 crossover, allegedly combining off-road manoeuvrability with open-road comfort.

Designed by Renault, developed by Nissan and built in Korea, the Koleos looks a highly  capable performer but arrives late on the crossover scene and seems to bring nothing very new.

A refined and lavishly equipped 2-litre diesel, it will also be available in two-wheel drive form for customers attracted by its macho looks but planning nothing more rigorous than a trip to Waitrose.

MM verdict: An ill-timed arrival in an overloaded sector.
