Renault Unveils The Talisman, Replacing Laguna Sedan
Renault has revealed its new executive saloon. The evocatively named TALISMAN ticks all the boxes that D-segment customers have come to appreciate, while taking wellbeing and driving enjoyment to a new level. The Renault TALISMAN features a unique combination of:
• Assertive styling: sleek, elegant lines.
• A warm, spacious cabin: ample room for all occupants and front seats among the very best in the Talisman’s class, plus an impressively big boot (608dm3 VDA).
• Comfort-enhancing innovations: a seven-inch digital instrument display under the dashboard cowling, R-Link2 with 8.7-inch screen, colour head-up display technology, BOSE® Surround Sound and hands-free parking.
• Innovations for intense enjoyment: Multi-Sense technology to match the mood of the driver.
The Talisman is the only D-segment saloon car to combine 4Control® four-wheel steering with active damping, allowing it to deliver unique road manners, plus safe, dynamic, agile handling, and outstanding ride comfort.
All these innovations combine to make the Talisman an executive saloon that will appeal not only thanks to its styling but also through a pleasurable experience for both drivers and passengers alike.
The Talisman is built to the very highest quality standards and meticulous attention has been paid to every detail, including, notably, the depth and lustre of its paint.
Low running costs, plus low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions also figure prominently amongst the Talisman’s core strengths. The Renault Talisman, together with the Estate version – which features the same qualities as the saloon – is poised to play an active part in the renewal and upgrading of Renault’s high-end range.
Both vehicles will be manufactured at the firm’s Douai plant in France. Following its unveil to the media on July 6, 2015, the Renault Talisman – along with the Estate version – will be presented at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, which opens its gates to the public on September 17.
The Talisman will be available for sale in Europe at the end of the year. A name that embodies the strengths of Renault’s saloonRenault selects names for its models that symbolise their design and personality across all markets where they are sold.
True to this tradition, the TALISMAN has been given a charismatic name that conjures up notions of both protection and power. At the same time, TALISMAN is an easy word to pronounce and is understood the world over.
This three-syllable name rolls easily and naturally off the tongue, yet it asserts the model’s powerful
personality and the energy it radiates. The combination of the model’s strong, racy lines and innovative technologies express protection and safety. The Talisman delivers intense driving enjoyment grounded in a genuinely sensorial experience.
