Renault's new mid-size SUV, the Koleos, is due in Ireland around this time next year.

But, as you would expect, there are no indications of specification, line-up or prices as yet. Shown at the Beijing Show on Monday, Renault is claiming the new SUV has a more 'premium' look.

From this remove it looks less dramatically drawn than the smaller Kadjar, for example.

One reason, I'm told, is that buyers of these larger SUV/Crossovers tend to be a little bit more conservative in how they want their cars to look. It will go on sale in China this year before getting to Europe early in 2017 and should go on sale here around May.

Its arrival into dealerships will mark more competition, and choice, for owners of the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe, Nissan X-trail and soon-to-arrive Ford Edge.
