During this year Frankfurt Motor Show, Renault unveiled along the new Talisman also its estate veersion. The Talisman Estate has exactly the same dimensions as the saloon, with a length of 4.86m, a width of 1.87m and a height of 1.46m. The wheelbase is 2.81m. This will ensure bigger space in the boot.
Access to the boot is easy, thanks to a sill height of 571mm, an opening 1,074mm wide and, like the saloon, a powered tailgate. The Easy Estate feature allows the 60:40-split rear bench to be folded in an instant via two levers in the boot. Hands-free opening is made possible by a powered tailgate, which is activated by waving a foot underneath the rear bumper. It is complemented by hands-free closing.
The Talisman Estate has 572 litres of load space up to the parcel shelf and a maximum load length of 1,116mm. With the rear seats folded, that increases to 2,010mm, and a volume of almost 1,700 litres.
Also the interior is very spacious. The Talisman Estate has 30mm of extra headroom (a total of 886mm) for rear passengers compared to the saloon. Front headroom amounts to 902mm, front elbow room is a generous 1,512mm, rear knee room is 262mm and there is more than 25 litres of stowage space in the cabin.
The front seats come with up to 10 possible settings, eight of which are electrically adjustable, and a seat length that can be adjusted fore/aft by up to 60mm.
Seat options include four-way electric lumbar adjustment, a massage function that can be adjusted in its type and intensity through two programmes and five sequences, aviation-style six-way adjustable headrests, heated cushions and backs and a settings memory for up to six people.
New features include integrated ventilation for greater comfort in hot weather and new Cover Carving Technology – semi-rigid, strong, lightweight shells incorporated into the front seat backs, freeing up more than 3cm of additional knee room for rear passengers.
