Of course, changing body implies an improvement in the Headroom rear passenger, It is passing very prominent 95 cm valid for People of 1.9 m tall can travel in that area with some comfort. It is also the cause of deterioration in the aerodynamic coefficient (0.3 versus 0.27 for the sedan). This, however, does not mean that travel is going to be uncomfortable or annoying. Quite the opposite. And is that with just over 70 dB (decibels) traveling at 140 km / h, the Talisman is very good; It is at the head of the segment, according to our data loudness.

And the truth is yes. 99% of the population, 99% of the time will not need that difference of two seconds WOT you need to go 1000 meters leaving standing (33 seconds) … nor do many drivers would know before the fear of damage mechanics. In our days consumption and how to recover speed have replaced the “Grand Prix semaphore”, especially in a family car, and these two aspects Talisman amply meets and spends almost half a liter less than its 160 hp version (5.4 l / 100 km in average consumption verified by our Technical Center) And most of its rivals, and is able to pull it its short sixth gear (55 km / h) at any time if we want to keep the driving speed, avoiding having to reduce speed before crowning the steep slopes toughest highway or overtaking face a two-way road.

Is it the Sport Tourer Renault Talisman what cost?

The 32,000 euros of Sport Tourer dCi Renault Talisman 130 hp Zen Energy with manual gearbox are a drain and turn it into a delicious machine must be added almost another 2,000, a very high cost but it is fair to recognize how in these conditions we will have to change a spacious car with a big trunk if we load up roof, running enough and has a low cost of use because it consumes little and, for fans to keep the car for a long time, it should be noted that their distribution is by chain, which will save the change belt of distribution.
