Planet 4×4 magazine has named it the 2008 4×4 of the Year. It also outgunned the Honda CR-V, Ford Kuga and VW Tiguan to be the magazine’s Compact SUV of the year and Best Newcomer.

The magazine lauded the Koleos’ combination of off- and on-road ability, versatile interior and loadspace, high equipment level and good build quality.

“It’s breadth of talents is vastly impressive,” said Planet 4×4 editor, Alan Kidd. “It’s excellent to drive in all conditions, and its convenience and usability put almost every other SUV in the shade.

“Renault has come from nowhere to make the best, most relevant 4×4 on the market. The Koleos does everything well and most things exceptionally; it’s a great all-round vehicle at an honest, value-for-money price.

”This is a new benchmark for all SUV manufacturers and a vehicle that’s every inch the 4×4 of 2008.”
