The recently introduced Renault TALISMAN has made the transition to a wagon (Grandtour) thanks to a digital design exercise.

The French Passat already has a more than generous 608-liter trunk capacity in the sedan body style, but for those who need to haul even more cargo the wagon version will be a better choice. You won’t have to wait that long for it as the model will be revealed in the months to come and should go on sale together with the sedan by the end of the year.

The different rear end with a slightly longer overhang will boost the amount of available space to approximately 640-650 liters which will make it one of the biggest in the mid-size segment, but still smaller than the Skoda Superb Combi which offers a massive 660 liters.

Needless to say, it will be offered with the same engines as the sedan so expect to find the TCe 150, TCe 200 turbocharged gasoline units as well as a trio of diesels: dCi 110, dCi 130 and dCi 160.

Both the Renault TALISMAN sedan and wagon will be exhibited in mid-September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
