The most surprising feature of the SUV is its ease of use and dynamic behavior in city and highway, where it operates with great poise and comfort. The steering is precise, progressive, faithfully transmitting the sensations from the road. Despite greater ground clearance -20 cm-Renault Koleos stability is similar to that of a sedan, a factor that is mainly due to the layout of suspension (McPherson Multibrazoa forward and back) keeps an optimal balance between comfort and effectiveness factor coupled with electronic systems driving aids give great stability and control in all kinds of paths. Mechanically, the Renault Koleos takes the platform and other mechanical parts of his cousin-brother, the Nissan X-Trail, and All-wheel drive mode 4 4-i. This system instantly corrects the slightest hint of under-steer or over-steer by amending the distribution of torque between the front and rear, even before the eventual intervention of the ESP system.
On surfaces with poor grip (snow, mud, sand), the driver can electronically blocking mode 4 4 transfer 50% of torque to the rear axle, triggering a switch on the board. Similarly, driving in delicate electronic aids is complete with sharp declines in both the start and in the slopes, thanks to Hill Start and Hill Descent. a ste latter is in charge of the vehicle without driver intervention, may drop to 7 km / h on the slopes, both forward and reverse motion. Renault Koleos has a Start Assist system costs very useful in day to day. This device is activated automatically when starting on a slope exceeding 10%. Prevents the vehicle on the slope recoil and facilitates the driver to maneuver to avoid having to pass rapidly from the brake to the accelerator pedal, as in other vehicles. The power, on the other side is covered by a 4-cylinder engine, 2.
5 liters, also from Nissan, letting out a net power of 170 hp at 6,000 rpm and a torque of 226 Nm at 4,400 rpm, which is associated with a continuously variable transmission CVT, which together give a very smooth driving , comfortable and fun. In short, the Renault Koleos comes as a very interesting alternative in the booming compact SUV segment. Their weapons are an outstanding ride comfort and ride comfort for the family, good functionality and this time, very good chance off road to enjoy the countryside.
