“With the new QM6 which has added a new design to the competitive product, we will offer customers satisfaction that does not wither in time.”

According to the New Car Buyer Survey the company conducted in 2019, 42 percent of respondents chose the exterior design as the reason why they chose the QM6, the company said.

The grille adopted a new mesh pattern, with the Quantum Wing spreading wide and the tornado logo in the center, representing Renault Samsung Motors’ new identity and direction for premium models, the company said.

The automaker added that the new QM6 has installed LED Pure Vision headlamps, a full LED rear combination lamp and dynamic turn signals to offer a more polished look.

The new QM6 comes in two powertrains, the QM6 LPe and QM6 GDe, which uses a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine. The QM6 GDe can facilitate a maximum torque of 20.4 kilogram-meter and 144 horsepower, the company said.

The price for new QM6 2.0 GDe model starts at 24.7 million won for the SE trim, and goes up to 33.2 million won for Premiere trim. The 2.0 LPe model‘s SE trim costs 24.3 million won and 32.4 million won for Premiere.
