Renault has announced updates for its Koleos medium SUV and Megane RS hot hatch.
The Koleos was the French brand’s biggest seller in 2020 and will still be offered in three trim levels: Life, Zen and Intens.
The two lower variants only add LED headlamps and auto high/low beam, but the top-spec Intens gets more upgrades: black Nappa leather upholstery, driver’s seat with memory and massage function, side-mirror tilt feature when reversing, dynamic turn signals, LED reversing lights and hill descent control in the 4×4 variant.
All models have a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine paired with a continuously variable transmission.
The Life remains at $32,990 plus on roads, while the Zen and Intens have increased by $300.
The Megane RS line-up meanwhile has been trimmed to a single variant, with the range-topping Trophy now the only option.
It has grown $500 in price and now gets low-speed autonomous emergency braking, a 10-inch driver display (up from seven), a 9.3-inch portrait touchscreen (up from 8.7) with the EasyLink multimedia system and a new shark-fin style antenna.
Customers can option a panoramic sunroof and a performance package with Recaro seats and Fuji lightweight alloy wheels.
Power is from a 1.8-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol offering 221kW, with either a six-speed manual or dual clutch automatic.
The Megane RS is now Renault’s only passenger offered in Australia after axing the Clio, Zoe and non-RS Megane models last year.
The updated Koleos and Megane RS will arrive in local showrooms in March.
