2012 Renault Koleos Review: Curvaceous Ride
The New Year has started and it’s a very promising one for the Indian automobile scene. The New Year has come packed with some good news and some unpleasant news as well.
The Good News is that there were a slew of launches at the 2012 Auto Expo held from 7th Jan at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. The launches catered to everyone’s wishes ranging from the eco friendly Mahindra Reva NXR, the pocket friendly Bajaj RE60 to the performance friendly AMG race cars.
Unpleasant news about 2012 is the hike in prices, Mahindra has already announced a hike of upto Rs.50,000 on the XUV 500 and other manufacturers would follow suit too.
Among many auto manufacturers present at the event, there was French car maker Renault India, who brought in the highly anticipated small car “Pulse” and the “Duster” SUV at the premium event.
Renault has had a little rough start in India with Logan (now manufactured as Verito by M&M) launched in 2007, which was ventured with Mahindra and finally saw an end in 2010. However, Renault re-launched itself with the Fluence sedan in 2011, followed by SUV Koleos.
The Koleos has been pitched against the likes of Toyota Fortuner, Honda CR-V, Chevrolet Captiva and also the BMW X1. We find out if the French, who are not known for their fierce nature, can battle it out with the rest of the gang with our review on the Renault Koleos.
