Renault Talisman Production Ends As People Continue To Flock To SUVs

It wasn’t the lucky charm Renault had hoped it would be.

Volkswagen stopped producing the Passat sedan in Europe at the start of the year, and now Renault is following suit with its sedan. The waggon is still being produced by Wolfsburg, although the long-roof version has been withdrawn by the French. To put it another way, the Talisman is completely defunct. (asr.adventistas) The firm with the diamond logo had declared plans to discontinue the midsize car in December 2021, so the writing had been on the wall for a while.

Renault discontinued producing the Talisman at the end of February, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have sedans in its lineup. The compact Megane Sedan, as well as the smaller Taliant, a rebadged variant of the Dacia Logan, are still available in a few countries. Renault’s lone remaining waggon is the Megane Estate, which was dropped when the Clio was upgraded to the fifth generation in 2019.

Renault has no plans for a straight replacement because sedans are so yesterday. It’s widely assumed that the Passat sedan will not be revived for the next generation, with just the waggon expected to remain. Furthermore, the Opel Insignia is slated to be transformed into an SUV, while China’s snazzy new Ford Mondeo will not be exported to Europe.

For the time being, the fate of the 508 is unknown, but we hope it will survive because it is one of the most appealing automobiles on the market today. Although the Citroen C5 has returned, its formula has altered, as it is now a wagon/crossover hybrid. Hopefully, Mazda will introduce the next-generation 6, complete with a rear-wheel-drive architecture, to Europe. As a refresher, Toyota sells the Camry Hybrid in this part of the world, but it’s not exactly a top seller.

As a result, the new Skoda Superb is poised to become the most popular midsize sedan in the mainstream sector. The Czech company has confirmed that the waggon will live to see another generation, so the anti-SUV brigade is not without hope. The flagship, which will be produced in Bratislava, Slovakia, will transition to the new model in 2023, when it will receive the VW Group’s final combustion engines as well as a completely redesigned cabin.
