Renault Latitude Flagship Premieres in Moscow, European Version to Debut in Paris


We first heard about the Renault Latitude in June, but today, the French carmaker revealed its new flagship sedan to the public for the first time at the Moscow International Motor Show. What is in effect a replacement for the controversially styled Vel Satis positioned above the Laguna in Renault's line up, is also a 2010 Samsung SM5 sedan in disguise - if you can call a new grille and different badges a "disguise"...

The Latitude will be manufactured in South Korea at the Busan Renault-Samsung-Motors plant and will go on sale at the end of September in Morocco and Algeria, then in Russia and Ukraine and in Africa. Renault will unveil the European version of the car with specific engines, fascia and exterior detailing at next month's Paris Motor Show.

For now, it's the French carmaker's largest car measuring 4,887mm long, 1,832mm wide, 1,483mm tall with a wheelbase of 2.760mm. It's 195mm longer, 19mm wider and 45mm taller than the Laguna five-door liftback. According to Renault, the boot compartment can hold 477-liters, or 511 liters without the spare wheel.

In Russia, the Latitude will come with a choice of two power plants. The entry level 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol unit produces 139HP and 191Nm of peak torque, and is offered with a continuous variable transmission (CVT) returning a combined fuel efficiency of 8.3lt/100km (28.4mpg US).

The range-topping 2.5-liter V6 petrol churns out 177HP and 233Nm, and is combined with a six-speed automatic transmission. Renault says with this engine the Latitude reaches a top speed of 209km/h (131mph) and returns a combined fuel consumption of 9.7lt/100km (24.2mpg US).

For some markets, the lineup will also include a 2.0-liter diesel with 150HP or 175HP, a V6 diesel with 240HP and a 3.5-liter V6 petrol delivering 240HP.

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
