INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGN
Looking at the appearance of two generations, we can say that these are two different models. The new Renault Koleos 2017 is equipped with strict modern optics based on light-emitting diodes, from below it is emphasized by curved daytime running lights DRL. In the first generation Koleos, a convex and round front optics was installed, and daytime running lights were absent.
The grille of Koleos in form remained the same, but in sizes increased, made from chrome horizontal strips emphasizes the severity of the new crossover. Instead of three horizontal stripes, designers installed four. Probably one thing is that in the near future this Renault logo will not change, it was placed in the center of the radiator grille.
The front bumper of Koleos has acquired strict features with coarse, harsh shapes. In the first generation, the front bumper was rounded off, and the car itself was soft and “kind.” At the very bottom of the bumper, the fog lights are located on the sides, and in the middle there is an additional grille for blowing the engine. Below it highlights the black splitter, similar to the one that was in the first generation of Renault Koleos.
The hood of the new Renault Koleos 2017 has become larger, curved shapes from the emblem go to the windshield itself. In the first generation, the hood lay down with the front wings, but in the second generation Koleos lies over the wings. It’s like a little hint that the car’s parameters have also changed.
The lateral part of the new Renault Koleos has changed beyond recognition. From a good old crossover there is absolutely nothing left. It was replaced by strict and modern forms of Koleos 2017. The front wings repeat the contours of the front optics to the very doors.
On the front doors of Koleos, the designers placed the side air holes. Below the car emphasizes the bend on the doors and a wide chrome insert. Door handles left standard, chrome with a button for opening, but not touch-open.
The rear part of Renault Koleos 2017 was replaced completely, the rounded optics was changed to a strict and extended. The body forms became strict and really speak of the solidity of the crossover. At the very top, a wing was placed above the glass for the color of the car’s body. The rear optics became elongated, that if it were not for Renault’s emblem, then maybe there was no separation. Under the emblem, in large letters the name of the model “Koleos” is prescribed. At the heart of optics is also the LED technology.
At the bottom of the Koleos bumper, the fog lights are located on the sides, and the bottom of the bumper is underlined by a black protection, with two exhaust pipe tips. The tips say that under the hood, a solid engine is hidden in front. Throughout the perimeter of the Renault Koleos 2017 designers have installed a black weather cloth, which emphasizes the severity of the crossover.
