Renault Samsung Motors, which operates in South Korea and exports its cars to a dozen of foreign countries, unveiled its facelifted QM5 crossover vehicle in Korea.
With the new QM5, the Renault Samsung Motors aims to challenge the South Korean crossover rivals such as Hyundai ix35 and Kia Sorento CUVs.
The all-new Samsung QM5 is a slightly redesigned crossover vehicle, which has been on sale in Korea for about two years. The model has also been sold in Europe as Renault Koleos.
The mid-cycle makeover affected the exterior, which now features sportier front fascia with redesigned headlamps and radiator grille that provide the vehicle a more urban style.
The new QM5 features upgraded four-cylinder engines (diesel and gasoline) and slightly redesigned interior lay-out with upper grade materials.
Renault-Samsung hopes that latest styling changes and powertrain upgrades will spawn more interest in the new QM5 crossover in Korea. The company hopes to take some sales from Hyundai ix35 and 2012 Kia Sorento, as well as Kia Sportage crossover.
