A Renault Koleos Subscription Might Be What Companies Are Looking For
Sometimes for a company not owning a vehicle outright might be a better option and so subscription gets interesting.
The pandemic continues to make life tough on everyone. The economy is still in tatters and even the largest companies out there are getting very cautious about how they spend their money. But if you run one of these companies, you understand that certain expenditures are still expected.
Mobility for managers and executives is one aspect that can’t be compromised especially when there’s a greater risk attached to using public transportation or ride-hailing services.
But big companies can’t be expected to take out leases on a premium German sedan for all their managers in such trying times. They also can’t afford to displease senior staff by dropping them down a rung or two with a traditional Japanese make. There’s an in-between choice that solves all these problems for everyone – a subscription to something like the new Renault Koleos.
Just a quick glance at the Koleos is enough to know that it’s an upmarket SUV. Sure, it might not be as premium as a Benz or Bimmer, but it’s certainly a step up from most mass market vehicles out there.
The design has a distinct flair to it and the thing has such an undeniably presence despite not being as complicated as most premium SUVs are under the skin. The PureVision LED headlights and sequential turn signal lights on the face-lifted model elevate the Koleos just tad further.
Inside, the Koleos is comfortable, quiet and tech-laden. The 2021 model comes with either Black Riviera combination leather with dark striped wood trim OR Sand Grey Nappa leather with natural grain grey wood trim, depending on the variant.
You can even get the Koleos with ventilated front seats with a massage function for the driver. This Koleos Signature variant even comes with a panoramic sunroof and 19” rims to really complete that luxurious look and feel.
As a daily driver, the Renault Koleos is hard to fault. The ride is pampering and the powertrain is smooth and capable. It has no sporty pretensions, but the 2.5-litre under the hood has enough grunt to move an entire family with haste. A large boot can be accessed handsfree thanks to the powered tailgate, and the 8.7” touch-enabled portrait-oriented display has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
All the expected boxes are checked even on the base model in terms of safety equipment. You get adaptive front airbags, lateral pelvis and chest level airbags as well as front and rear head-level curtain airbags on the Koleos. Blind Spot Monitoring is also standard, which can help prevent accidents during lane changes.
Being a subscription, companies have flexibility and options on their side. They can opt for a full-spec Koleos Signature Plus for three years and pay just RM3,399 a month.
However, if the company have budget concern, they can also opt for base variant of Koleos from RM 2,599 on a 3 years plan or even a pre-owned Koleos from RM2,499 on a 1-year plan. For a better flexibility, they can also opt for a SWITCH plan from RM3,199 where they can stop the subscription at any point of time with just a month of prior notice.
To sweeten the offer, companies can also now enjoy PAY LATER option for 2 months and 2 additional FREE months of usage on limited units of Pre-owned KOLEOS plan.
Here’s what that’s a good deal:
On paper, a subscription works better for companies. The car would not count as an asset for the tax department to get excited over, and depreciation does not play a part in your losses. The monthly payment covers ALL associated running costs save for fuel and toll charges.
There are no unexpected maintenance costs, no downtime, no road tax or insurance worries. Just pay monthly and enjoy a hassle-free experience for your accounts department and your senior staff members.
Also you can apply, track the application status and make payments 24/7 from anywhere through Renault E-Store – their integrated digital system for a better customer experience.
