Renault Koleos Diesel coming to Australia in 2011 late-Q4


As Renault officially announced to launch new Renault Koleos Diesel in Australia late in the fourth quarter of this year.
Three different engines will be available around the world depending on the market: two tunes of the 2.0-litre diesel engine with either 110kW or 130kW, and the 2.5-litre petrol engine with 126kW. Renault is yet to reveal the full performance details of the updated model, although it is expected the engines’ power and torque figures will remain unchanged.
In Australia, the Koleos is currently offered with a 126kW/226Nm petrol engine teamed with a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission, as well as a 110kW/320Nm diesel with a six-speed automatic.
Renault says extensive work on the diesel engines, transmissions and the vehicle overall have lead to improved fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The 110kW version now emits 148g/km of CO2, while the 130kW tune has also been reduced to 166g/km.
As fuel consumption and CO2 emissions are directly proportional, we can approximate that the new 110kW diesel will use around 5.6 litres/100km under European standards, although we are waiting for official confirmation of this from Renault. The current Australian-spec Koleos diesel uses 8.3 litres/100km on the combined cycle and emits 221g/km CO2.
The Koleos will continue to be available in front- and all-wheel drive modes. Five-star safety is standard with six airbags and ESC.
As detailed yesterday, the key styling changes have been applied to the headlights and grille. A new paint colour, Cayenne Orange, will also be available
