TC Euro Cars (TCEC) has teased the arrival of the facelifted Renault Koleos, which was first revealed back in June this year, with a post on Renault Malaysia’s Facebook site. Interested customers can begin registering their interest by clicking on the link above, or just head on over to our Premium Auto Car Expo (PACE) 2019 event happening next weekend, November 2 and 3, at the Setia City Convention Centre to check out the car in the flesh!
Styling revisions that are part of the facelift include a more prominent front grille with new chrome trimmings, which sits between the Pure Vision LED headlamps and C-shaped light signatures. You’ll also find a 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. Other exterior updates include new two-tone alloy wheels and a Vintage Red metallic paint finish, although it isn’t known if we’ll get either.
Changes to the interior are more subtle, with new soft materials and satin inlays applied to certain areas to give the Koleos a more upmarket feel on the inside. Elsewhere, the rear seats sport a two-stage reclining seat back, while the 8.7-inch R-Link 2 touchscreen infotainment system now supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The current Koleos on sale here is powered by a 2.5 litre NA four-cylinder petrol engine with 171 PS and 226 Nm of torque, which is paired to an X-Tronic CVT driving the front wheels, and it is likely this powertrain will be retained for the facelift as well.
