The Renault Talisman Estate has been officially unveiled at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (2015 IAA) in Germany.
Renault says that the Talisman Estate aims to offer the practicality of a cavernous estate while offering the panache of a saloon. The estate has a maximum loading capacity of almost 1,700 litres and is aided by the Easy Estate folding rear seats along with a wide opening (1,074 mm) and a low sill height (571 mm) to make loading convenient and an easy affair.
The estate version sports the signature Renault front end seen on the Talisman saloon with the C-shaped daytime running lamps that extend into the bumper. The higher-spec levels get full-LED headlamps with Pure Vision LED technology. The side profile of the estate features a rising waistline for a dynamic look. It also sports a long lip spoiler, chrome embellishments for the windows and polished aluminium roof rails.
The rear features a powered tailgate which can be activated by waving a foot underneath the rear bumper. The rear tail lamps feature the incorporation of LEDs with a 3D effect with Edge Light technology. The Talisman Estate will be offered with a choice of alloy wheels ranging from 16-inches to 19-inches.
Coming to the interior, Renault is offering a slew of comfort, entertainment and convenience features in the cabin. The front seats can be electrically adjusted with 10 settings. The seats also include a 4-way adjustable lumbar adjustment and massage functions with two programmes and five sequences. The rear seats include integrated ventilation and a new Cover Carving Technology which liberates extra 3 cm of knee room. Higher-spec trim levels come with full-grain Nappa leather upholstery, laminated windows and improved soundproofing.
The Talisman Estate features Renault’s R-Link 2 infotainment system with a 7-inch display in landscape format as standard, while the higher-spec trim levels get an 8.7-inch screen in a portrait format. It is available with a customised BOSE Surround Sound audio system with a 12-speaker and a subwoofer setup. The audio system incorporates CenterPoint Technology which converts stereo signals into multi-channel signals for an immersive Surround Sound experience.
