Renault-Samsung alliance in South Korea is going really strong. I mean look what they have in mind for the new SM7! This fantastic looking sketch previews the new version of the locally popular mid-size sedan.
The current SM7 looks like an old Nissan Sunny, it is actually based on a Nissan platform, but the new one by the looks of things has global potentials. It has a sleek and elegant four-door coupe form like the Mercedes CLS and features a beautiful face with nicely proportioned air intakes and a big signature grille. We also quite like the buffed up fenders and the chiseled headlights. Not sure how many of these good features will make it to the finished product though.
If Renault can design such cars for Samsung, why their own cars look so… French?!
To find out we have to wait for the next Seoul Motor Show in April. Enginewise, the SM7 should get an upgraded lineup of the same VQ powertrains from the current model.
