The Renault Koleos
is a compact SUV which was first presented as a concept car at the 2006 Mondial de l'Automobile in Paris (with first concept demonstrated on 2000 Geneva Motorshow). The Koleos was designed by Renault and developed by Nissan
. It is manufactured by Renault Samsung Motors
, a subsidiary of Renault, at its plant in Busan
, South Korea
. A South Korean-market variant is marketed by Renault Samsung Motors as the Renault Samsung QM5
Renault has some experience in the 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.
The Koleos's body design is based on the Renault Koleos and Renault Egeus
concept cars. The engines selected for the Koleos haven’t been used in any car, but will be used in the Clio
. Some of the Koleos's competitors such as the Citroën C-Crosser
and the Peugeot 4007
were also presented by this time.
In August 2010, the Koleos was withdrawn from the UK
market, due to poor sales of under 3000 units.
