Renault Talisman is preparing for the mid-cycle refreshments. The test prototype was spied traveling down in South Europe. Thanks to the most current spy pictures, we can see minor exterior upgrades on the 2021 Renault Talisman. We must say the model doesn’t look different than the existing model.
However, the new Renault Talisman will surely introduce more upgrades. That consists of a turbocharged gasoline engine and additional interior upgrades. Renault is unforeseeable. We waited on upgraded Kadjar and Clio models for so long. Renault generally delivered nothing new. The same story continues with the Talisman.
2021 Renault Talisman Changes
Just like the recently-spied Megane hatchback, the 2021 Renault Talisman was likewise caught on the video camera. The prototype wears camouflage on some parts, especially upfront. That suggest numerous updates on the front fascia. From what we’ve seen, the L-shaped LED strips are no longer available.
The radiator grille is somewhat larger, and lower bumper got new trims. Grille now sports horizontal bars. Headlights will stay undamaged. In the back, the taillights are getting more information and new internal graphics. On top of that, the rear bumper is modified too. Talisman will ride on the same CMF-CD platform that underpins Renault Escape MPV model. Unlike Laguna model, Talisman does not feature a 5-door version. However, it features a lower ride height.
2021 Renault Talisman Interior
On the very same spy pictures, we can see some camouflage from the inside. That highly suggests further interior upgrades. However, we don’t anticipate any substantial change. The 2021 Renault Talisman will continue with the same interior design and interior design. Changes will occur on the center console and the control panel. On top of that, new decor alternatives are visible.
We anticipate Renault to provide the most recent infotainment system. The majority of the upgrades will be visual. That likewise consists of lighter interior colors such as grey. The current model provides a black control panel that will be gone now. French carmaker could introduce lighter upholstery colors as well. We still don’t know if Talisman will provide more standard devices.
2021 Renault Talisman Powertrain
Under the hood, Talisman did suffer many changes in last few years. The 2021 Renault Talisman will provide various drivetrain choices. After all, this engine is available in Europe and South Korea. In Korea, Talisman is offered under the name “Renault Samsung.” Talisman and Samsung will not provide the same engine lineup. Whatsoever, diesel variants weren’t available in Korea. Nevertheless, that will change.
It knows that the 2021 Talisman features numerous choices. Whatever begins with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel that generates 200 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque. Also, a 1.8-liter TCe is producing 225 HP. The 1.6-liter turbodiesel version is not offered any longer.
2021 Renault Talisman Price and Release Date
The price of the 2021 Renault Talisman will not be increased drastically. That suggests the all-new sedan will cost in between $22,000 and $25,000. Sales of the Talisman are far from pleasing. This sedan does not have behind other European rivals such as VW Passat or Skoda Superb. Nevertheless, its availability in South Korea certainly helps. The 2021 Talisman will go on sale next fall.
