Renault Koleos Gets Added Value And Mitsubishi Updates Mirage Small Car.

Renault Australia has updated pricing and warranty for its already value packed Koleos range. The three model range (with one offering 4×2 and 4×4 drive) now has a seven year warranty as standard.

The entry level Life has a new drive-away price of $31,990, with the mid-pack Zen kicking away at $35,990. The Intens has the two drive options and starts at $42,990 for the two wheel drive and adds just $2,500 for the all wheel drive.

The 2020 Koleos has capped servicing costs for five years (or 150,000 kilometres) and if serviced at an authorised Renault dealership will get up to five years of road-side assistance. Service intervals are 30,000 kilometres or 12 months.New alloys distinguish the range for 2020, and there’s a solid list of standard safety equipment. The mandated items such as stability control and ABS are, of course, here, and there is now Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS Inter-Urban), Hill Start Assist, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), and Rear View Camera.

The Zen and Intens go a step further with Blind Spot Warning, 360 degree parking sensors, and the Intens now gains Auto High Beam headlights and EPA, or Easy Park Assist. Android and Apple apps are standard also. The Zen and Intens now offer 12 months of live traffic updates and 36 months map updates. Mitsubishi Australia have also unveiled an updated car, and this is their competitor in the small car segment, the Mirage. It now sports the family “Shield grille” and nose design, a restyled rear, and extra safety features.

Powered by a 1.2L petrol engine with 57kW and 100Nm, there are two trim levels, ES and LS. The ES has a choice of five speed manual or CVT, with the LS having CVT only. The two tier range share a rejigged rear bumper that features thicker creases to redirect airflow. This complements the now familiar Mitsubishi front that presents sharp angles on either side of the flatter grille strakes and slimline headlights.Its compact size hides a decent 235L of rear cargo space that expands to 599L with the second row seats folded. It also allows a turning circle of just 9.2 metres.

Safety has gone up and now comprises Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) and rear-view camera plus the LS has Lane Departure Warning added on top. There’s a lightly refreshed interior, and a 7.0 inch touchscreen allows DAB, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay access.There is a seven colour palette including two new colours: Cool Silver metallic, Sand Yellow metallic, plus Black, Wine Red, in pearl, and Cyber Blue & Red Planet in metallic. White is a standard colour at no extra cost. Metallic paint is $740 as is Pearlescent.

The 2020 Mirage is on a drive-away price of $16,490 for the ES manual, $17,990 in CVT and the LS is $18,990 with pearl or metallic paint included. The Mirage is available to buy from April 6, 2020.
