Our view
The Renault Koleos is an effective new SUV which may surprise buyers in an overcrowded market.


Renault Koleos – have we not been here before? Yes – the first Koleos was a compact SUV launched by Renault in 2007. By 2010 it had been withdrawn from the UK market, because nobody was buying it – less than 2,600 finding owners.

That was then, however, and this is now. In the time since the crossover market has mushroomed. Today everybody it seems wants one, and the cars they are abandoning most for crossovers are MPVs – which Renault used to sell lots of.

The French brand has already plunged into the compact SUV market with the Captur and Kadjar models – now the Renault Koleos arrives as a larger sister with the emphasis on upmarket. This is designed to be a halo model – Renault is offering it in five-seater form only, and expects only modest numbers of sales for the car.

Toyota Supra test drive

The new Toyota Supra delivers a unique driving experience that's one of the best of any modern sports car, and co-development with BMW has served the car well.

Audi SQ2 test drive

The Audi SQ2 is a very capable car, with great performance and all the trimmings you expect. The only frustration is the easily-confused gearbox.

Toyota Camry test drive

As a car to get from one place to another without fuss, it’s hard to go wrong with the Toyota Camry. It's easy to drive, spacious enough and efficient.

Volkswagen T-Cross test drive

The little Volkswagen T-Cross looks like being another successful SUV for VW. It blends style and practicality into a package that’s perfect for the city.
