Renault Talisman Estate breaks cover
Renault Talisman Estate has been unveiled ahead of its world premiere at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show 2015. The sedan version of the flagship model broke cover earlier this year.
As expected, the station wagon inherits the new design language debuted by the sedan. A prominent chrome grille, sleek LED headlamps, unique daytime running lights and chrome embellished fog light enclosures have been retained.
In profile, the car is characterized by flat roofline and pronounced rear haunches. The estate wears sophisticated LED rear combination lights that are identical to those of sedan.
While the dimensions and footprint are exactly same as the sedan, the estate boasts of a massive boot space of 572 litres which can be further extended up to 1,700 litres with the rear seats folded.
Positioned at the very top or Renault’s global portfolio, Talisman is equipped with luxurious features such as electrically adjustable seats with lumbar adjustment, massaging, heating and cooling function, R-Link 2 touchscreen multimedia infotainment system with BOSE surround sound system, Multi-Sense technology (four wheel steering and active damping) and a complete suite of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
The powetrain lineup too is shared with the sedan. Renault offers two petrol (TCe150 and TCe 200) and three diesel engines (dCi110, dCi130 and dCi160). All the engines are mated either to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed dual clutch automatic transmission save for the dCi160 which is available exclusively with the autobox.
Renault Talisman Estate and sedan will be offered in four trim levels including Initiale Paris when they go on sale in Europe in the first half of 2016.
