Debut of a new Renault Vel Satis Sedan

at the Moscow International Autosalon!

Renault has lifted the covers off a new flagship sedan named Latitude that will in effect replace the discontinued (and rather controversial) Vel Satis June 7, 2010. The Latitude will get its first public outing at the Moscow Autosalon at the end of August, while Europeans will get their first view of the car at this Fall's 2010 Paris Motor Show (according to L'Automobile).

For those of you that keep a close eye on global automotive news, the new Latitude won't come as a surprise as it's based on the Renault Group's 2010 Samsung SM5 sedan that recently went on sale in South Korea (Renault has been the owner of Samsung Motors since 2000).



Renault has not yet released details on the engine range, but motorists should expect the usual mix of petrol and diesel engines as for Laguna for Europe. The model will feature 1,4L gasoline engine 130 HP and top version will feature 2,0L turbocharged 205 HP. It will also feature a range of 130 to 235 HP diesel engines for Russia.

The company says the Latitude will feature a range of high-tech engines, along with goodies such as triple-zone climate control, a massaging driver's seat and Bose Premium audio system.

According to L'Automobile in Russia the new Renault Vel Satis sedan will go on sale in autumn 2010.
