New Samsung SM7-based saloon is only available for sale in China
23 April 2012

The Renault Talisman saloon has been unveiled at the Beijing motor show. The Talisman is a Chinese market version of the Samsung SM7.

The Talisman, formerly known as the Safrane, will be built alongside the SM7 in South Korea. Both cars use the Renault-Nissan Alliance J31 platform, which is also seen in China underneath the Dongfeng-Nissan Teana joint venture saloon for the Chinese market.

Two engines are offered in the Talisman: a 187bhp 2.5-litre V6 or a 254bhp 3.5-litre V6. Gearbox options include CVT or six-speed autos.

There are no plans to offer the Renault Talisman for sale outside of China.
