Each time we drive a Renault and we close the driver's door from the outside we get the same feeling of having enjoyed a car that's not only extremely reasonable, but also keeps a few very valuable aces up its sleeve.
The best example has to be the Megane RS
- it holds the Nurburgring record for the fastest front-wheel drive car, but unlike almost every other car that ties its name to the famous German racetrack, it doesn't blow up the comfort for this. In fact, the Megane RS is one of the best daily driver hot hatches money can buy and speaking of money, it's also extremely well priced.
You see, we could go on for pages and pages about this, even if we switched from the Megane to the little Twingo, but we're not here to do that.
This is reverend Renault speaking: Dear family and friends, we have gathered here today to witness and celebrate the wedding of an SUV and and MPV. I know I have arrived late at this crossover table, but I have brother Nissan's complete technical blessing and I promise you that you shall not regret embracing the Koleos. I have facelifted the Koleos, blessing its exterior and interior and now it is ready for you.
Reverend Renault here might have a point here. Considering the aforementioned way in which Renault build its cars these days, the carmaker is the perfect company for building a crossover. The facelift received by the car in late 2011, which targeted the exterior and the cabin, as well as reducing the emissions a tad, brings it closer to the contemporary shiny-fancy demands, albeit just up to a point.
But the truth can only be revealed once the needles start climbing, so it is time to leave everything behind and get behind the wheel of the Koleos. The fact that the car arrived late might have brought it experience benefits, but it also means that it has to face a frightening number of competitors, which come from all parts of the world.
Renault has though this through and to make sure that the Koleos gets a fair chance to fight, it is selling the car virtually across the globe, from Europe to Australia, South Africa, Latin America, New Zealand and others.
