DesignEdit

The Latitude is a four door saloon based on the Renault/Nissan D platform, and already developed as the third generation (L43) Renault Samsung SM5. The Latitude was facelifted for 2015, with a new rear fascia.[5]

MarketingEdit

The Latitude is the successor to the Renault Vel Satis, which went out of production in August 2009. Sales of Renault Latitude began in Asia, Australia and Eastern Europe in the autumn of 2010. In Mexico, it was launched during the first quarter of 2011 as the Renault Safrane.[6]

The European version of the Latitude, with full details of the model's equipment lists and engines ranges, was shown at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, and sales in Western Europe began in the beginning of 2011, but not in the United Kingdom.[7][8]
