Renault Samsung Motors has released images of the definitive design of New SM7, its latest large, prestige sedan for the Korean market.
In addition to its generous exterior dimensions,New SM7’s original lines exude the sort of elegance and comfort that is only associated with refined luxury. The racy front-end styling expresses power and confidence, while the rear end suggests a spacious interior and large boot. The bold design of the two exhaust tailpipes leaves little doubt concerning the performance characteristics of the engines that will be available for the model.
This brand new sedan is poised to supersede Renault Samsung Motors’ current top-of-the-range model. Based on a technical package acclaimed for its strength and efficiency, it benefits extensively from the Alliance’s input in these areas. New SM7 combines exemplary driving pleasure with the very latest technologies to deliver an exceptional sense of wellbeing and genuine quality.
New SM7 is very similar to the concept car which was revealed at the Seoul Motor Show at the beginning of April. It is due to go on sale in Korea before the end of the year.
In addition to boasting the most generous exterior dimensions of its class, the latest-generation SM7 combines bold, striking lines with an unmistakable sense of refinement and elegance. The front end is built around a single-structured grille flanked by the original gaze of the car’s adaptive and directional bi-Xenon headlights. The character line and chrome trimming add further to the implicit sense of dynamism and quality. The generous forms continue rearward, forming a spacious cabin in which everything will be devoted to motoring enjoyment and the exclusive wellbeing of its occupants. Meanwhile, the bold twin exhaust tail-pipes point to the quality and performance credentials of the engines that will be available for the car.
New SM7 benefits extensively from the expertise of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, from its original design to the high standard of after-sales service quality customers will be able to expect. Developed from the New SM5 base, it will stand out as a new benchmark in Korea’s large sedan market, while its plush comfort, silent ride, precise chassis and high-performance engines all promise to be convincing arguments. The reputation for quality and reliability currently enjoyed by Renault Samsung Motors has naturally been carried over to New SM7 which packs Alliance-derived features assembled in keeping with the group’s exacting standards.
This refined, luxuriously-appointed sedan will sit at the top of the brand’s rejuvenated, structured new range. The near-definitive model was shown for the first time as a concept car at the Seoul Motor Show in April, while its interior will be revealed just before it goes on sale in Korea in the second half of the year.
