Renault Samsung SM7 conceptTue, 05 Apr 2011
Making its debut at the Seoul Motor Show was the Renault Samsung SM7 concept.
Despite carrying the concept tagline, the car is a thinly veiled production model of the forthcoming Samsung SM7 in Asia, and possibly the next generation Renault Laguna or Safrane in Europe.
The D-segment sedan is based on a stretched platform that underpins the current SM5, and will go head to head with both the Hyundai Grandeur and Kia K7.
The car is a clear departure from the aging outgoing model it replaces. The muscular stance and larger diameter alloys denote a more athletic nature to the car; whilst the detailed surfacing, chrome trimmed DLO, daytime-running LED lights and full width rear light graphic project a more upmarket, premium feel to the car.
The Samsung SM7 is expected to reach the South Korean market early 2012.
