The Renault Koleos is a compact SUV which was first presented as a concept car at the Geneva Motorshow in 2000, and then again in 2006 at the Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris. The Koleos was designed by Renault and developed by Nissan, with the majority of the production coming from the Busan plant of Renault Samsung Motors.

A facelifted version of the Koleos is available as of 2011.[3]

The Koleos is a new addition to the Renault SUV market, after selling the Scénic RX4 and the Kangoo, but it has never produced a true SUV. A Koleos concept car was shown in the media as long ago as February 2000.[4]

The Koleos's body design is based on the Renault Koleos and Renault Egeus concept cars. Some of the Koleos's competitors such as the Citroën C-Crosser and the Peugeot 4007 were also presented by the time it was launched. ADAC of Germany awarded five stars to the Koleos in a crash-test done in 2008.[5]

In August 2010, the Koleos was withdrawn from the United Kingdom, due to poor sales of under 2,600 units.[6][7]

Koleos in South Korea

For the South Korean market, the Koleos is manufactured by Renault Samsung Motors (a subsidiary of Renault) at its Busan plant in South Korea[8] and is sold as the Renault Samsung QM5 (H45).

Koleos in India

In the Indian market Renault produced its premium SUV Koleos on September 8, 2011.

Koleos made its international debut in 2008 and this is the first facelift the vehicle has received since its launch. The popular Koleos registered a 51% YOY growth in the first half of 2011. It is currently being sold across five continents and in markets as diverse as Europe, South America and Asia Pacific.

It will be available with a 2.0 dCi diesel engine with a maximum power output of 150 PS @ 4000 rpm and peak torque of 320 Nm at 2000 rpm.
