Renault brings back the Safrane | Rpmgo.com

The Renault Safrane was introduced in 1992 as a replacement for Renault’s very popular Renault 25 and was produced until 2000, when Renault decided to replace it with the radically styled Vel Satis and Avantime, neither of those managing to sell well. And now it looks like Renault thought about bringing back the Safrane nameplate, by revealing a new mid-size luxury sedan, which actually is a rebadged version of the Renault Samsung Motors SM5, built on the Nissan Teana and Maxima platform at the Busan plant in South Korea. The new Safrane, powered by a V6 engine mated to an automatic gearbox will only be available in the Gulf States (United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman,Kuwait and Qatar).
