Renault Talisman S-Edition Arrives In Geneva With Alpine A110’s Engine

The new Renault Talisman S-Edition won’t break any speed records, but it should become more appealing for customers wanting a bit more power.

Described as being “more sporty and powerful than ever”, it uses the same 1.8-liter turbocharged petrol engine as the Alpine A110. It delivers 225PS (222hp) and 300Nm (221lb-ft) of torque to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.

Renault hasn’t released any performance details so far, but the Espace, which is available with the same engine and transmission since last summer, takes 7.6sec for the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) acceleration. The average fuel consumption is 6.8 l/100 km (41.5 UK mpg / 34.6 US mpg), as per NEDC, and it emits 152 g/km of CO2.

The engine can be had on the regular Talisman models, too, not just the S-Edition, but the latter comes with more gizmos. It’s based on the Intens grade, to which it adds the 4Control Pack and Electronic Damper Control, full LED headlamps, Etoile Black side mirror casings, 19-inch wheels, extra-tinted rear windows, embossed chrome sills and ‘S-Edition’ badging.

Inside, the Talisman S-Edition sets itself apart with the addition of black leather and red stitching, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, gear lever, and door inserts, aluminum pedal caps and aluminum inserts. There’s also a black roof lining and red carpet mats with embroidered ‘S-Edition’ motif.

Renault with start taking orders for the limited edition of the D-segment car across Europe in September, with pricing to be announced at a later date.

Nevertheless, potential buyers can take a closer look at it in Geneva, as the estate version of the Talisman S-Edition will be on display at the event until March 18.
