2011 RENAULT-SAMSUNG SM7 CONCEPT
Renault’s Korean subsidiary Samsung unveiled the SM7 Concept at the Seoul Motor Show. It’s a pre-production design study that previews the next generation of Renault Samsung’s flagship model, the SM7. After last month’s teaser sketch, now more photos revealed.
The Renault-Samsung SM7 Concept’s lines are modern with the front dominated by a massive trapezoidal grille, a bulging hood and teardrop-shaped LED headlights. The car’s profile features a third lateral window, an element also found on the current SM7. The rear features two large oval exhausts, but its most striking pieces are the thin boomerang-shaped taillights united by a very long third brake light.
The production version is set to be introduced in South Korea in the second half of the year as a replacement for the current SM7, which is based on the aging Nissan J31 platform (also used by the Asian Nissan Teana and the North American Nissan Maxima). The new SM7, however, will be based on an elongated SM5 platform. The Samsung SM7 will compete on the Korean market against the Hyundai Grandeur and the Kia K7.
