Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Renault Koleos is a huge step up for the French brand.The launch of the second-generation Renault Koleos medium SUV in Australia is one of the company’s most significant to date. So significant that we are in fact the first market to get the car — not something we’re used to here in our remote corner of the world.
This French rival to the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson and imminent new Volkswagen Tiguan is poised to become the company’s top-seller here, which is fitting when you consider the continued rapid growth in this corner of the market.
The new Koleos sits on the same proven architecture as the Nissan X-Trail (fruits of the global Renault-Nissan Alliance) and is once again built in Korea as part of Renault’s alliance with Samsung Motors. It’s larger than before, more upmarket and certainly better value.

Pros
Interesting cabin design
Plenty of interior space
Good value
The promise of reasonable ownership costs may surprise you

Cons
Petrol engine and CVT uninspiring, a diesel would be good
Not the rounded dynamic package that class-leaders are

The original Koleos was Renault’ s first crossover ever, and the newest iteration is set to be the brand’s flagship SUV that will compete against the likes of the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Nissan X-Trail, among others. As Renault’s flagship SUV, the Koleos is now larger and offers seating for up to seven. It comes loaded with an automatic four-wheel drive system, new technology, and a decent list of driver assistance systems.
When spy shots of the new Koleos started surfacing, I was a little skeptical that Renault would do right by the model. The original did well in some markets, but poor in others others . Now that we’ve seen the finished product, it’s pretty clear that Renault went all out on its new flagship SUV. It’s filled with technology that will be used and doesn’t have any of the extra crap that nobody ever uses. The interior is upscale and luxurious, and it is sure to be a hit in most markets.

Pros
Updated styling
Space for seven
Up-scale features

Cons
Could be too close to the X-Trail
Engine packages might fall short

The 2018 BMW X3 ventures into M territory, but doesn’t lose sight of its SUV duties.

Pros
Nimble, sedan-like handling
Excellent interior space and storage
Great turbo-6 powertrain
Standard all-wheel drive
M40i a blast to drive

Cons
Base 6.5-inch infotainment display
Forward-collision warnings an option
World’s most expensive Apple CarPlay
Off-road? More all-weather

Though it has sporty handling, powerful engines, and roomy seats, the fully redesigned 2018 BMW X3 is only a midpack luxury compact SUV. Its drawbacks include a higher-than-average starting price and fewer standard features than the competition.

Pros
Agile handling
Strong engine lineup
Spacious cargo area and cabin
Premium interior

Cons
Above-average starting price
Minimal standard luxury features
