Renault has taken the wraps off the Talisman Estate which make its world premiere at the 2015 IAA.
There’s nothing surprising with the design of the machine as it closely echoes the sedan version with its massive radiator grille flanked by a pair of full LED headlights and C-shaped LED daytime running lights. The Talisman Estate features exactly the same dimensions as the saloon, along with the same “dynamic proportions, sleek profile and high waistline.”
The estate model features a powered tailgate which is activated simply by waving your foot underneath the rear bumper. The Talisman Estate offers 572 liters (VDA) of load space up to the parcel shelf and a maximum load length of 1,116 mm. With the rear seats in the folded position, that figure increases to 2,010 mm, equating to a volume of almost 1,700 liters (VDA).
Most of the Talisman’s comfort features are available for the estate too, including up to 10 possible electric settings for the front seats, four-way electric lumbar adjustment, a massage function, heating and cooling function, etc.
Power is provided by the same engine range that was revealed for the saloon. It includes TCe 150 and TCe 200 turbocharged gasoline engines paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and dCi 110 and a dCi 130 diesel units, both linked to a 6-speed manual or the 7-speed dual-clutch. There will also be and a flagship dCi 160 twin-turbodiesel working only with a 6-speed dual-clutch.
