Exclusive – Renault Talisman to come as Estate too, RS version not ruled out image

Renault has some big plans for its recently unveiled Talisman as this should exist in different forms.

Currently available as a sedan only, the brand new Renault Talisman is going to be offered in an estate version too. This might be called a Sports Tourer and come with the slightly sloping roofline but we cannot be sure on its looks just yet. However, an insider within the company has recently confirmed to inautonews.com that the Talisman will be offered in an estate variant too and an RS is not ruled out either but its faith will be eventually decided by customers.

“I confirm than Talisman is due to exist in Sedan and Estate version. No plan to develop an RS version but never say never again if lots of customers ask for it”, said the Renault representative.

The Renault Talisman has been offered in China for quite some time now but the European variant, which has been recently unveiled, is slightly different. The model has the R-Link 2 infotainment system with an 8.7-inch display on higher end models, a Bose surround sound system, massage functions and heater on the seats and a wide engine range which includes the TCe 150 and the TCe 200, connected to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The diesel lineup will include the dCi 110 and the dCi 130, connected to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch. An upcoming range-topping dCi turbo will be added to the range later on.
