What Car? says...

Buying a Renault SUV has never looked so tempting. The Captur is currently the most popular car of its kind in Europe, and its bigger brother, the Kadjar, has won fans thanks to its low running costs and strong four-year warranty.

If you’re in need of more space in your SUV however, then historically you’ve had to look towards other brands such as Kia with its seven-seat Sorento, Hyundai with its ever-popular Santa Fe and Skoda with its impressively spacious Kodiaq. Well, until now that is, because Renault has joined the fray with its all-new Koleos.

Taking styling cues from the Mégane, the Koleos has a more dominating stance than the smaller Kadjar, and thanks to its Nissan X-Trail underpinnings, this is an SUV that can actually go off-road thanks to optional four-wheel drive, unlike rivals such as the front-wheel drive only Peugeot 5008.

Somewhat surprisingly however, the so-called family-orientated Koleos doesn’t come with the option of seven seats. Is that enough to detract from what otherwise looks like a practical and well equipped SUV? Read on to find out.
