2015 Renault Talisman.jpg

Renault Talisman/Samsung SM6 (LFD/KFD). 2015 to date (prod. n/a). 4-door saloon, 5-door estate. F/F, 1461 cm³ diesel (I4 OHC), 1332, 1618, 1798, 1997 cm³ petrol, 1598, 1749, 1997 cm³ diesel, 1998 cm³ LPG (I4 DOHC). Sharing the CMF-CD platform with the Espace V, Talisman took its name from both a Renault show car and the large Samsung SM7 (L47)-based saloon on sale in China. More Germanic looks, in an effort to challenge the likes of the Volkswagen Passat (B8). LHD only, with four-wheel steering and active dampers among the high-tech features. Extra 59 mm in width compared with outgoing Laguna, with Talisman reaching 1,870 mm; wheelbase a generous 2,810 mm, both matching SM7. French Talisman 20 mm lower than SM7, at 1,460 mm. Estate shown August 2015. Samsung SM6 on sale in Korea in early 2016, with two-litre petrol and LPG engines in addition to 1·6 petrol. Refresh in 2020, with fully digital 10·2 in instrument panel and new engines among the changes. French production to 2022.
