Here’s a Renault Talisman Grand Tour For Your Family Vacation

After seeing the Talisman officially, followed by a rendering of a rather doubtful RenaultSport version, it’s time to check out what an Estate version might look like.

Right off the bat, they probably wouldn’t keep the pseudo-trunk lid spoiler look for the Grand Tour, and they’ll probably do completely different designs for the taillights, as they’ve done with the Laguna in previous generations.

Renault have never shied away from designing completely different rear ends to separate sedan from station wagon, and by sedan I mean hatchback, which is what the Laguna actually is.

Speaking of which, the Laguna has been a sales disaster throughout Europe for the past couple of years, though many of those that did end up buying it, went for the Grand Tour version – which to be fair, is a very practical and decent looking car.

So how successful would a car be if it looked anything like this rendering? Well, it would definitely sell better than the Laguna, since you know, this is a new car, has plenty of new tech and a very high-end interior (or so Renault would have us believe).

We’ll do plenty of feeling around the cabin once the Frankfurt Motor Show comes along (September), though if I was VW, Ford or even Opel, I’m not sure I’d be particularly worried.

What do you guys think?

    They’d probably do something with stacked taillights is my guess.

  • Ilbirs

    The Talisman is and looks bloated, but this SW chop looks smaller than it’d be in reality, which is a good thing for a car of this size. Good job, X-Tomi.

    Great looking car, however still “too German” for me.

    • mavro

      not when you buy it and it breaks down all the time, that will remind you its French

      • dinn

        Is it? I owned 4 Renaults and they didn’t break.

        • mavro

          yep I had about 8 Renault’s loved them to death, but they were shit, drive around Europe and broken down cars are Renault’s/ french. heating problems, electrical gremlins and so on.. I do have the correct information.
          and a Renault it didnt have enough power to break, with the silly gear shifter in the dash.

      • F-GTRS

        Still thinking about reliability, that French cars are terrible and German ones are the best ? Time to forget your preconceived ideas and get the right information, in my humble opinion.

    • Mike Gonzalez

      and when cars are 100% french like the DS range, they won’t sell

      • dinn

        To be honest with you I was considering DS 5 DSport 1.6 THP 200, however it was just too slow. They could be selling better with more powerful engines.

        • Mike Gonzalez

          yup, even the hybrid is slow even tho its AWD and has electric engine
          if only they’d take a bit more time to optimize their cars

  • MarketAndChurch

    It does look really good, reminds me of the Mondeo wagon but perhaps better.
