2017 Renault Talisman Review – Recently interviewed by our Australian colleagues in Car Advice magazine, Renault-Sport’s sales and communication director, Régis Fricotté, indulged in a few indiscretions. According to him, “It was confirmed by Mr. Ghosn (CEO of Renault-Nissan), that Renault wants to redesign its motorsports activities on a world scale. This means that we are studying the potential to develop the Renault Sport brand, not just Clio and Mégane. ” But impossible for the moment to advance the name of a particular model. This choice will be driven by market demand, technical feasibility and economic viability.
2017 Renault Talisman, So what other model to support the Clio and the Mégane, within this Renault-Sport range? If we go over the Renault range, we can immediately exclude the Twingo. The latter shares its technical base with the Smart Forfour, and remains dependent on the goodwill of development of the house Mother … cedes. If the German is currently working on the release of a sports model, badboy Brabus, it should result in only a GT version on the model of Renault. With a power around 110 hp, it will not be able to claim the RS label.
A little higher in the range, the SUV Captur could be a serious contender. The Renault-Nissan alliance has already given birth to this type of vehicle, through Juke Nismo. A category that will soon include the Fiat 500 X in the Abarth version. Renault could therefore plunge into the breach with a Captur taking over the engine of his little sister Clio RS.
On the other hand, there is little chance for the Kadjar to wear the tracksuit. The cousin Qashqai, a time tipped to obtain the Nismo label, has finally passed the trap. The family vocation of these two SUVs may cool the marketing experts. Same for the Renault Espace, although it evolves in a more premium sphere.
Finally, there is the Talisman case. Since the disappearance of the Safrane Bi-turbo in the 1990s, Renault did not consider it opportune the renewal of a sports sedan. But the renewed ambitions of Renault in the top-of-the-range, with this large sedan statutory to global influence, could prompt the ex-governor to encanailler the latter. Without hoping for profitability, the return on investment would be rather expected in terms of image. It is true that replacing the placid Laguna is no small matter for the Talisman. The integration of a sporty version in the range would be a real boost.
