Our new saloon packs style and real driving enjoyment
While its status-enhancing styling ticks all the boxes that D-segment customers have come to appreciate, the evocatively-named with its assertive styling, warm, spacious cabin and comfort-enhancing innovations is delivering an even higher standard of wellbeing and driving enjoyment for its class.
Following its unveil to the media on July 6, 2015, the Talisman – along with the estate version, which features all the same qualities as the saloon – will be presented at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show which opens its gates to the public on September 17.
The Talisman is poised to play an active part in the renewal and upgrading of our high-end range and will be manufactured at the firm’s Douai plant in France. The new compact executive saloon will be available for sale in Europe at the end of the year.
