The sportier Talisman also has some premium goodies included
If you felt the need for a sportier Talisman, there's a new engine in town and a limited S-Edition that could just tick all the boxes you wanted
Renault introduced its brand-new 1.8 TCe 225 petrol engine on a special edition for the brand's flagship Talisman.
Based on the current top-of-the-line Intens equipment level (ADAS Pack and Vision System, Multi-Sense, massaging seats, etc.), the Talisman S-Edition brings sporty styling and some premium interior upgrades, adding the 4Control Pack and Electronic Damper Control as standard features.
The S-Edition exterior styling sports black Alizarine 19-inch wheels and, for extra privacy, extra-tinted rear glass. The model also comes with Pure Vision Full LED head lights, embossed chrome door sills, S-Edition badging on the wings and Etoilé Black door mirror housings.
Inside, the Talisman S-Edition adds sporty features like black leather and red top-stitching for the upholstery and dashboard (plus matching leather-trimmed steering wheel, gear lever bellows and door inserts), grey and red carpet mats with embroidered S-Edition motif, aluminum pedal caps and other ‘aluminium’ finishes.
The Talisman can now also be ordered with the new TCe 225 petrol engine mated to seven-speed EDC automatic transmission. The new powerplant provides 225 horsepower (165kW) and 300Nm torque and is the new top-of-the-range engine for the Renault range.
