If you’re all about the finer details in all things, this latest teaser for Renault’s new Talisman sedan is for you.

The single image above is all that Renault is offering today, but it follows a short and equally vague video clip released earlier this week, teasing a few details of its own.

That earlier video revealed a tightly cropped look at the Talisman sedan’s sculpted bonnet, leather trim and wooden accents, textured wheel design and long LED tail lamps.

In this latest close-up, we see the rotary dial and flanking buttons that will control the Talisman’s infotainment system.

As with those offered by brands like Audi, BMW, Mazda and more – along with models in Renault’s own range – this control set will allow users to navigate through the vehicle’s media system, drive settings and satellite navigation, among other features.

Little else has been revealed at this stage, although it is understood that the Talisman will enter as a replacement for both the Korean-built Latitude sedan and the Laguna that has been offered in Australia in years past.

It has also been widely reported that the Talisman will not be produced in right-hand-drive, effectively ruling out any chance of an Australian launch.

With the Latitude set for retirement in the very near future, any decision to keep the Talisman to left-hand-drive markets will see Renault exit Australia’s midsized sedan market.

Watch for the Talisman to make its first appearance on July 6 (early July 7, Australian time), ahead of a world premiere likely to occur at September’s Frankfurt motor show.
