Renault has unveiled a facelifted version of its Koleos SUV.
Among the changes are two new diesel engine options: a 1.8-litre with 150hp, which comes with front-wheel drive; and a 2.0-litre with 190hp, which comes with four-wheel drive.
Both engines are paired with CVT automatic transmission.
Renault says CO2 emissions figures are 143g/km for the 1.8-litre engine, and 150g/km for the 2.0-litre.
The revised Koleos also gets exterior styling tweaks, including a more prominent grille, a bigger brake light, new chrome trim and larger skid plates, while LED headlights are now standard across the range.
Two-tone alloy wheels are also newly available.
Inside Renault says there are improved soft touch materials and revised satin trim inserts, while the rear seats have gained a two-stage reclining seat back.
Full-screen Apple Carplay has been added to the infotainment system, and a pedestrian detection function has been added to the autonomous emergency braking system.
Two equipment grades will be on offer, Iconic and GT-Line, with other standard equipment across the range including: adaptive cruise control, dual-zone climate control, keyless entry, ambient interior lighting, hands-free parking and a reversing camera.
UK prices for the revised Koleos will be announced in July, with customer deliveries beginning in October.
