Renault Koleos BOSE

Renault’s partnership with the maker of high-end audio system Bose continues with a new special edition of the Koleos.

This generously-equipped crossover is based on the Carminat equipment level, it is powered by the reliable and highly efficient 2.0 dCi 150 engine which can be mated to one of three types of transmission: six-speed manual/front-wheel drive, six-speed manual/4×4 or six-speed automatic/4×4. In addition to a Bose® audio system that has been tailor-engineered to match the properties of Koleos’ cabin, the new version will feature specific exterior styling and interior appointments.

For all the extra stuff you get with this version, the 29,400 euro asking price is actually not that bad. Especially as it looks much better than the standard Koleos thanks to the visual tweaks.

– aluminium-coloured door mirror housings,

Bose® Sound system: tailor-engineered sound

Since 2007, Renault has chosen Bose® for the design of its high-end in-car audio systems with a view to providing a listening experience which is exactly how the original artists would have wanted their work to sound. Bose® audio systems are tailor-engineered for the cabin of each model and deliver a standard of precision and realism that is close to a live performance.

To deliver this quality of sound inside Koleos, Bose’s engineers started from a clean sheet. Their work entailed more than a thousand acoustic readings inside the cabin. Engineers from Bose and Renault then worked closely together to optimise the system’s integration inside the cabin of Koleos as a function of its forms and the materials employed. The number, type and position of the loudspeakers were carefully selected, while the digital processors and signal equalisers were painstakingly tuned to produce a rich, natural, Bose®-quality sound that is perfectly balanced for all occupants, whatever the volume.
