The Renault Talisman is a large family car produced by Renault. In South Korea it is called Renault Samsung SM6.
The saloon version of the Talisman was first unveiled on 6 July 2015, at the Château de Chantilly by Renault's CEO Carlos Ghosn, with an estate version scheduled to be revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The two versions were allegedly codenamed LFD (saloon) and KFD (estate). The car is based on the CMF-CD platform, jointly developed by Renault and Nissan, and is the second Renault car using it following the Espace. The use of the new platform is aimed at giving the Talisman a production volume advantage, that its predecessor (the Laguna) never achieved.
Design and technical details Edit
The Talisman is slightly larger than the Laguna, with a lower centre of gravity. Renault focused on design, equipment and comfort with the aim of regaining market share in the large family car segment. Daimler personnel visited the car manufacturing site at Douai and gave input on quality control and perceived quality. According to Renault staff, they wanted to give the car the “fluid and emotional” aspect of smaller models from the company. They also tried to achieve a more "classic" styling than the used for its predecessor with the aim of gaining market share from the business fleets. The Talisman is the first mid-sized Renault saloon since the Renault 18 in the 1980s for which no hatchback body is available either as standard or as an option.

The car has five trim levels (Life, Zen, Business, Intens and Initiale Paris). It has a four wheel steering system (called 4Control) which is not available in the South Korean version. It also incorporates a system (Multi-Sense) which allows adjusting all car settings (on the cabin as well as mechanicals) between four options called Comfort, Sport, Eco and Neutral (and a user-configurable option). As an optional, the Talisman has a new infotainment system with a 8.7-inch touchscreen introduced in the fifth-generation Espace, called R-Link 2 (S-Link in South Korea). The equipment also include adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, traffic sign detection with excess speed warning and blind spot alert. The car scored a 5-star rating at the 2015 Euro NCAP tests.
Gearboxes are 6/7-speed dual-clutch automatic, 6-speed manual and CVT (the latter only available in a liquefied petroleum gas version sold in South Korea). Suspension is made of Pseudo McPherson struts on front and a semi-rigid axle on rear, with an optional active suspension system. Brakes are discs on both axles.
The Talisman is powered by a range of petrol engines in both Europe and South Korea. The diesel-engined versions are not sold in South Korea, while there is a liquefied petroleum gas version for the South Korean market only.

The use of the Talisman name is intended as a way of unifying Renault nomenclature across the world, as Renault already sells in China a similar car named Talisman. Renault said the name "conjures up notions of both protection and power. At the same time, Talisman is an easy word to pronounce and understand the world over".
