Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

This is the all-new Renault Koleos, a name you might remember from when the French carmaker tried its hand at SUVs before they became truly fashionable. That one was pulled from sale in the UK back in 2010 due to slow sales (and the fact it was a bit rubbish).New Renault Koleos majors on passenger space and isn’t a bad drive either
It seems to be second-time lucky for the Koleos: with its smaller siblings – the Captur and Kadjar – both performing well, Renault hopes that this larger model further boost its fortunes.

Pros
Passenger space,
standard equipment,
driving refinement

Cons
Only offered as a five-seater,
no auto for smaller engine

The Koleos is stylish and well equipped, but it’s not as spacious or as well made as some of its rivals.

Pros
Well equipped
Nicely finished inside
Lots of safety kit

Cons
Lumpy ride
No seven-seat option
Limited boot space

The exterior changes of this Renault Koleos 2020 with very subtle. Aesthetically there is not a big jump although this facelift will arrive with some changes, especially in the front with new Pure Vision LED headlights available throughout the range and a newly designed lower area of ​​the bumpers and fog lights, an area that also changes slightly In the back. A series of touch-ups with which you want to offer a somewhat more elegant image and also offering the SUV's more off-road appearance . Updates in this exterior section are completed with a new Vintage Red metallic color and two-tone alloy wheels.
The interior is also updated with improved softer feel materials , revised inserts and rear seats that receive a reclining backrest in two stages. The R-Link2 infotainment system has also been improved by adding integration with Apple CarPlay that can be accessed through 7 or 8.7-inch touchscreens . In the safety section, you receive a new automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian detection.

Cupra’s first standalone model is a handsome crossover with decent road manners and plenty of space

Pros
Sharp looks,
handles well for a crossover,
plenty of space and equipment

Cons
Fiddly touch-sensitive heater almost as annoying as having to explain the badge to your mates

By: 
topgear.com

Pros
Strong range of engine options
Great interior style and quality
Genuinely good fun to drive for an SUV

Cons
Fairly limited personalisation options
There are more practical options
Some infotainment frustrations

The Cupra Formentor doesn't feel as playful as the closely related Volkswagen T-Roc R, but it’s every bit as fast in its similarly priced, range-topping form, plus it handles with composure and has a much nicer interior. In addition, cheaper, less powerful versions of the Formentor offer the same sporty looks as the flagship model – something that isn’t the case with lesser T-Rocs. Just bear in mind that you can have our 2021 Sports SUV of the Year, the Ford Puma ST, for not much more than the cheapest Formentor.

Pros
Well equipped
Surefooted and grippy handling
Smart interior

Cons
TSI 310 isn’t as much fun as the very best sports SUVs
Slightly hesitant automatic gearbox
Fiddly controls
