After the current Laguna failed as a strong competitor against important names like the Volkswagen Passat, Ford Mondeo and Opel Insignia, Renault wants to make a great change.
 
The French manufacturer will abandon its Laguna and Latitude models in favour of a one new model, completely redesigned and with a new name, never used by Renault before in its history.
 
The names Renault chooses for its models are selected to symbolise their style and personality in all the markets where they are sold.
 
True to this tradition, the Talisman has been given a charismatic name that conjures up notions of both protection and power. At the same time, Talisman is an easy word to pronounce and understood the world over.
 
Along with the announcement, Renault also unveiled a special video teaser, showing the most important lines of the car, including its back end. According to Renault, its new D-segment sedan is a ”combination of robust and its racy lines and innovative technologies express protection and safety. The Renault Talisman delivers intense driving enjoyment founded on a genuinely sensorial experience.”
 
The official unveiling is scheduled to take place on July 6th, 2015.
