Exclusive fleet test drive of all-new Renault Koleos

By May 2, 2017Fresh News

Fleet Show 2017 will be the first opportunity for fleet decision-makers to test drive the all-new Renault Koleos – the car that is leading a surge in conquest business at the French manufacturer.

A fleet of 10 of the new models will be available for test drives at the show as the brand returns to the large car segment  later this summer.

Renault is aiming for both large car  buyers and those looking to upsize from the medium car segment. And as it is a return to this area of the market, all sales will be conquest wins. Key competitors for the All-New Koleos include the Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe.

All-New Koleos blends SUV styling with large saloon levels of refinement, combining a five-seat layout with a very spacious, clear and comfortable cabin, four-wheel drive capability and 213mm of ground clearance.

Fleets will have the choice of both front and four-wheel drive models, powered by a choice of two diesel engines 1.6-litre dCi 130 with manual gearbox and a 2.0-litre dCi 175 4WD available in both manual and Auto X-Tronic gearbox.

The debut of All-New Koleos comes as new business booms for Renault in the UK– according to head of fleet sales and remarketing, Mark Dickens: “63% of all our field account manager appointments are new business so far this year”.

The brand ended 2016 with car sales up by 12.5%, giving a 3.2% market share. This was the fifth consecutive year of growth and was also achieved despite having the core Scénic and Mégane ranges on run-out before the all-new versions arrived in November.

Also on display at Fleet Show will be versions of the new ZOE ZE 40 with its range extended, Kadjar, Mégane and Grand Scénic. All will be available for driving on a choice of three versions of the Silverstone circuit.
