At the Seoul Motor Show, Renault Samsung Alliance has unveiled the SM7 Concept, a D-segment sedan that foreshadows the future standard version and whose commercial launch, according to plans of the French-Korean brand, is expected in the second half of 2011 and will replace the current 2004 model.
Design shapes seem proportionate, modern and far more interesting than the current SM7, although not so much if compared with some recent European and Korean models. Currently there are no official information on the prototype mechanics, but it is believable the use still of the traditional Nissan V6 engine already on the current model: the 2.5 V6 with 182 hp and 232 Nm of torque and the powerful 3.5 V6 with 251 hp and 335 Nm. Rumors of SM7 becaming the new Renault flagship named Safrane is still unconfirmed.
