Renault said the renewal of its upper range will be complete following the introduction of its second-generation Koleos large SUV.
The French automaker debuted the new Koleos at the Beijing auto show on Monday. The SUV will be the automaker's flagship in many global markets.
Koleos sales will begin in the third quarter in Turkey, in some Latin American countries, Australia and the Gulf states, followed by China at the end of this year. Russia and Europe will follow early next year, Renault said in a statement.
The SUV will continue to be built at Renault's factory in South Korea for global markets except China. China models will be produced at the automaker's new factory in Wuhan, central China, alongside the Kadjar compact SUV.
The Koloes joins the new Espace large minivan and Talisman midsize sedan at the top of Renault's product range.
The car uses the same Renault-Nissan CMF-C/D platform as the Nissan Qashqai compact SUV and Nissan X-Trail midsize SUV. Unlike the X-Trail, which has five- and seven-seat variants, the Koleos will be offered with as a five-seater to avoid cannibalizing sales of the seven-seat Grand Espace.
The Koleos, which launched in 2008, has been slow-selling in most Renault markets including Europe. Renault said it expects the new generation to be successful because it "comes at a time when SUVs are enjoying strong growth in many markets."
