Mondial2016: Renault unwraps Initiale Paris version of New Koleos

At the Beijing Motor Show in April 2016, Renault unveiled New Koleos, a new addition to its top-end product line-up merging rugged SUV styling with upmarket saloon refinement.

Now New Koleos Initiale Paris is taking the limelight at this year’s Paris Motor Show: a top-end version addressing major European markets and available along with the rest of the New Koleos range from spring 2017.

 

In taking up the Initiale Paris signature, this version of New Koleos joins the select uppermost reaches of the Renault range as regards features and services, the perfect complement to the car’s inherent virtues of robustness and interior space.
