It has already been known that the Renault Laguna and Renault Latitude are going to be replaced by a single mid-size sedan this year. This replacement, now it is known, will be called the Renault Talisman.
The company has released a teaser video for the Talisman, which teases several of its elements including new LED headlamps, upper grille, blacked-out B-pillar, sporty alloy wheels and new, sleek LED tail lamps.
The teaser gives very little away but confirms that the car is based on the company’s latest design language seen on the Kadjar and Espace, which is very well received.
The Talisman will be underpinned by an iteration of the Renault Nissan Alliance’s CMF (Common Module Family) platform – CMF-C/d. The new platform is said to bring many benefits to the D-segment contender, including a cost reduction by 30% and a weight reduction of up to 100 kg.
Spyshots have previously revealed some interior features including a new three spoke steering wheel, a new R-Link 2 infotainment system with an 8.7-inch tablet display, vertical HVAC vents and use of wood trim. The cabin is inspired by the fifth generation Espace.
The Renault Talisman will be available both as hatchback and station wagon. The station wagon’s spy shots have revealed that it will have differently designed LED tail lamps. A coupe version is unlikely due to the slump in the segment. The Talisman will be revealed on 6 July and will go on sale in first European markets later this year.
