The fact that few were sold shows what an absolute heap the Koleos is. Fortunately, Renault has the vastly better Captur model now, which I seem to be seeing everywhere.

-"hash-up" - if using one of the best cars as a basis (X Trail) and building it in Korea = hash-up, then maybe you are right
-Few sold = poor marketing, poor timing and zero previous track record in the market. It doesn't equal rubbish
-Captur is a totally different machine, much smaller and car like. Nothing like Koleos.
