Earlier, the Renault Koleos was available only with 4WD and automatic transmission. Also, being a CBU, the car was considered expensive by many. Now, to reduce the prices, Renault has started local assembly of the 2.0-liter (171 bhp version) M9R engine at its manufacturing plant in Tamil Nadu.
The 2WD variant will miss out on features like ESP, hill start and descent controls. While the 4WD will be offered with 6 airbags, the 2WD will get only 2 airbags. Even the eight speaker BOSE audio system, highlighted by various badges on the car, will be absent in the 2WD variant. Instead, it will be offered with a six speaker Arkamys sound system.
