The Renault Talisman measures 4.85 m long, 1.87 m wide, 1.46 m high and has a wheelbase of 2.81 m. It is based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s Common Module Family platform, which also underpins the Renault Espace MPV and the 2016 Renault Megane.

Exterior wise, the Renault Talisman features C-Shaped LED DRLs with new LED headlamps that flow into a V-shaped grille, chrome elements on the lower intakes, foglamps and long LED rear lights. As is the current trend, the roof smoothly slopes towards the rear for a bigger greenhouse. The rear end also gets a dynamic bumper design housing large exhaust tips.
