The production version of this design study is set to enter the South Korean market in the second half of the year as a replacement for the current model, which is based on the aging Nissan J31 platform (also used by the Asian Nissan Teana and the North American Nissan Maxima). The new car will make use of an elongated version of the SM5 platform. Renault Samsung says Korean customers can expect to see the SM7 on the market by the end of the year.
Renault Samsung has not yet provided details on the available engine range, but given the size of the SM7 the lineup will most likely include a two V6 gasoline units.
