Quite why it took Renault so long to dip its toe into the 4x4 market is open to conjecture but when it did, the Koleos model it brought to market wasn't a bad first stab. It was distinctively styled, rode well, wasn't priced unreasonably and ran on tried and tested Nissan-sourced mechanicals. By most accepted measures, the formula was right. But it flopped. Disastrously. What made an underwhelming new prospect can often make a corking used buy and the Koleos is no exception. Here's what to look for when hunting for a bargain used example.
The Renault Koleos was an unremitting failure as a new car and one that never deserved the public antipathy it received. Only 3,000 examples were ever shifted here in the UK which limits used car choice somewhat, but the post June 2009 Dynamique models really are exceptional bargains. You get all the engineering that has made the Nissan X-Trail one of the best compact 4x4s around coupled with a whole stack of standard equipment and a price that reflects its position as an automotive reject. If you can live with the quizzical looks, you'll net yourself a serious bargain by shopping for a used Koleos.
