The Renault Talisman is a large family car manufactured by the French car manufacturer Renault. It is marketed in South Korea as the Renault Samsung SM6.
Renault executives stated that, like the new Espace V crossover, it will not be engineered for markets with RHD, such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malta, Cyprus, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand, due to the decline in the traditional saloon market.
The saloon version of the Talisman was first unveiled on 6 July 2015, at the Château de Chantilly by Renault's CEO Carlos Ghosn, with an estate version scheduled to be revealed at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. The two versions were allegedly codenamed LFD (saloon) and KFD (estate).
The car is based on the CMF-CD platform, jointly developed by Renault and Nissan, and is the second Renault car to use it following the Espace. The use of the new platform is aimed at giving the Talisman a production volume advantage, that its predecessor (the Laguna) never achieved.
