2020 Renault Talisman Grandtour Sends Passat Vibes In Latest Spy Shots

Here’s a fresh batch of spy shots of the facelifted 2020 Renault Talisman Grandtour you. The prototype with the less disguised front is testing in Germany and shows the new design of the front bumper. We still think that it will launch early next year. [Updated 11/19/2019]

We first saw spy photos of the facelifted Talisman sedan in April this year, and now we can bring you more images of the estate version.

As with the four-door model, the wagon Grandtour only features camouflage on the front and rear ends, which is were the only exterior changes will be made. The Talisman Grandtour prototype is slightly less disguised at the front, revealing more about the design for the front bumper.

It’s a pretty straightforward (and not that different..) look, with the round fog lights nestled in newly designed trim pieces on each side of the bumper and a new chrome strip above the fog lights that spans the entire width of the bumper.

Judging by the tape applied to the upper grille we can expect some mods there as well, as in the brand’s logo and the trim piece that unites it with the headlights. Speaking of the latter, they are all-new and feature full LED units. From what we can see, Renault has gone for a Passat-esque shape, although the LED “moustaches” carry over. At the back, the taillights appear to sport a new LED signature, with the bumper likely to adopt a very subtle styling update as well at the lower part.

No photos of the interior are available for now but we do not expect major changes anyway, apart from an updated infotainment system, new upholstery colors, and some new trim.

Not much will change under the hood either, as Renault has already changed the entire engine lineup with the switch to the WLTP standards. The 2020 Renault Talisman family should debut later this year, probably at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
