Renault provides glimpse of forthcoming Latitude global saloon
The model is said to offer generous exterior dimensions, large boot and elegant styling and is intended to appeal to customers who are looking for status, quality and comfort.
Based on the same architecture as New SM5, which was recently launched in Korea, Latitude has been engineered for a comfortable, quiet ride, as well as a precise chassis and a choice of powerplants intended to compete comprehensively with rivals.
Renault also says that the Latitude also offers enhanced quality and reliability, using the Renault-Nissan Alliance's latest developments.
The full equipment list is yet to be revealed and will be tailored to meet the needs of different markets but Renault has said that it will include a dual-mode air ioniser with double fragrance diffuser, triple-zone climate control, a massaging driver's seat, Bose Premium audio and Renault hands-free card.
The Latitude will be shown at the forthcoming Moscow Motor Show, and is due to go on sale this autumn, chiefly in Asia, Africa, the Gulf States, Mexico, Turkey, Russia and Australia. More details on the car will be available from 10 June at www.renault-latitude.com
