The Renault Koleos, a compact SUV from the Renault Motors, was first introduced as a concept car at the 2006 Mondial de l'Aumotobile in Paris. Designed by Renault and developed by Nissan, the all-terrain crossover Koleos has been inspired by the X-Trail platform and is assembled at the Renault-Nissan production facility at Oragadam outside Chennai. Renault launched the Koleos in India in September 2011, with a lot of promise, claiming that the car is a perfect blend of power with pleasure. The car is claimed to offer precise steering feedback, outstanding stability and road view, contributing to a sedan-like driving experience. In India, the car will be available in four colour options – Maple Red, Black Metallic, Ultra Silver and White Pearl.
