The replacement for the Renault Laguna is set to be revealed and will be known as the Talisman. A teaser video for the Talisman is out and is expected to be revealed on July 6. The Talisman has been spotted testing several times in Europe and is expected to go on sale in 2016.

Design cues at the front end are similar to that of the next-generation Renault Megane, which is also due 2016. Overall, the Talisman’s shape is similar to that of traditional saloons like the Mazda 6 and Volkswagen Passat.

The teaser video released indicates an interior wood trim, a head-up display, an aggressive front-end with a chrome bar on the grille, along with two-tone alloys, sleek taillights and a sculpted hood. Renault explains the saloon’s nameplate saying it “conjures up notions of both protection and power.

At the same time, Talisman is an easy word to pronounce and understand the world over”. The power train details of the car are under wraps. On the inside, the Talisman is expected to be equipped with technology suited for an executive saloon such as a digital instrument cluster, leather trim and a large multimedia screen.

The Talisman may be offered with optional full-LED headlights, four-wheel steering, adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition system, semi-auto self-parking tech and a list safety and assistance systems. The Talisman is expected to share the CMF architecture, which is co-developed with Nissan and is expected to be bigger than the outgoing Laguna.

Renault had plans to replace the Laguna with a premium executive saloon from 2012. In a conversation with our sister publication, Autocar UK, Renault bosses had mentioned that the next Laguna would need to be a more adventurous model, and would need to incorporate the fluid styling seen on Renault’s smaller models.
