Both 4x2 and 4x4 versions of the Koleos Dynamique gain an Arkamys audio system as standard, while the range-topping Koleos Privilege features a BOSE audio system.
The Privilege model also gets a carbon-fibre styling effect to the centre console, and a sunroof is now standard for the variant.
A new rear spoiler is now also standard across the whole Koleos line-up.
The Koleos continues with its powertrain combinations of a 2.5 litre petrol engine teamed with a six-speed manual transmission, or the a CVT auto transmission. A 2.0 litre diesel engine is also available, paired with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed auto transmission.
