Renault Laguna

Model Update

A wide variety of choice is available to the new Renault Laguna buyer. This is roomy car that has very good build quality, is as safe as they come and provides comfortable transport for any type of distance you care to cover.

Smooth and punchy, the latest Laguna provides a 2.0-litre petrol and a 2.0-litre diesel option. Eight airbags, traction stability control, alloys, electric seats, electric windows, leather seats, satellite navigation, a sunroof, premium sound…what more could you wish for.

Choose between the Renault Laguna hatch and the Renault Laguna Estate. It’s up against the Honda Accord, Toyota Aurion, Citroen C5 and the Ford Mondeo, and does a nice job of it, into the bargain. Apart from the other French vehicle in this list it stands alone as being quite distinctive and classy.

Are you considering a motor vehicle with space and good looks? The new Renault Laguna might just “tickle your fancy”. The Classy French stationwagon has appealing lines that give an overall impression of sophistication, balance and style. The Renault Laguna is not only very at home touring on the open road, but you will find it just as rewarding and as comfortable around town for those short trips that city life demands. In Australia, Renault provides the would-be buyer a well equipped motor car that boasts a 2.0 litre turbo-diesel engine. Pleasantly refined, the diesel engine pulls smoothly and quietly – even from very low engine revs. With 340 Nm on tap, the Laguna has plenty of pulling power – even when fully laden or pulling a trailer. Push the Renault Laguna into corners at pace, and you will find that the suspension and chassis set up provides the driver with loads of confidence, as the car grips well under hard cornering. The steering is quick and accurate, and body roll is kept well in check. The six-speed sequential-shift auto-adaptive automatic gearbox is smooth and is very happy to provide quick changes to a lower gear when strong acceleration is required.

The Renault Laguna’s interior is styled around the driver and occupants, with comfortable fitted front and rear seats. The front passenger and driver seats are electrically adjustable and heated. Controls for everything are within fingertip reach. The climate controls are electronic, dual zone, independent and easy to adjust. There is a Bluetooth Nav-Com system with an integrated hands-free telephone that can be controlled by voice recognition or the simple touch of the central joystick control. There is a top of the range audio system with 6-CD multi-changer that is also an MP3 reader. and controls for the audio system are located on the steering wheel. Rich leather is also part of the Renault Laguna’s interior, seats and steering wheel.

The Renault Laguna safety features are second to none. Anti-whiplash headrests are standard; they automatically adjust forward in the event of a crash. There is driver and passenger two-stage auto adaptive airbags, and lateral rear airbags. The rain sensor wipers automatically switch on when the system recognises that rain is hitting the windscreen. There is even a tyre pressure monitor that lets you know when your tyre pressure is getting low. You will find the very effective parking sensors are at the ready to assist you in those tight driving situations where mixing paint is not an option. The parking sensor is excellent at letting the driver know that an object is getting too close. High performance Xenon double-distance optical headlamps come as standard. And they are cleaned very effectively by a headlamp washing device to help assist you in seeing further.

The Renault Laguna makes life tough for its competitors – especially in a market place full of medium sized motor vehicles. If you require a top of the class luxury vehicle that has space and excellent safety features, then the very balanced Renault Laguna should be on your list for viewing.

  • Renault Laguna Expression 2.0 Turbo diesel
