Renault Talisman – new official images released image

The French based automaker Renault has recently launched more official images with its latest creation, the Talisman sedan.

After starting its public life not too long ago as a simple rumor and with the company teasing it ahead of its official debut at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, the Renault Talisman is once again placed into the spotlights, this time with the company releasing more official images with the model after presenting it at the Chinese automotive event. According to the car manufacturer, the Renault Talisman will be assembled in South Korea and the model is actually a version of the Samsung SM7, which will only be available on the Chinese local auto market.

Future Chinese customers of the Renault Talisman will have to choose between two engines, the 2.5 liter V6, which is developing a total output of 187 BHP, and the larger 3.5 liter V6 unit, with its 254 BHP. Renault says that both engines will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission or a CVT. The Renault Talisman and the Samsung SM7 are both using the Renault-Nissan Alliance J31 platform, which is also visible “underneath” the Dongfeng-Nissan Teana joint venture in China for the local market. The Talisman will be available in China starting with June.
