New Renault Laguna revealed

The Laguna hatch and estate versions – the coupe remains unchanged – have been given a number of styling tweaks, most noticeably at the front, where a new front bumper and grille give the car a more aggressive feel.

Renault has not released full details of the facelifted Laguna, but it has promised a Euro 5 compliant dCi 110 diesel engine will deliver reduced emissions of 120g/km – meaning it is exempt from showroom tax and will only cost £30 in road tax under the new rates.

There will also be a larger dCi 180 engine offered with the range and Renault’s 4Control four-wheel drive system will be available with the powerplant.

Promising the ‘highest level of quality, reliability and safety’, Renault says the Laguna will sit below the all-new European-orientated Latitude saloon, which will also be revealed at the Paris Motor Show from 30 September.

Standard equipment will include Carminat TomTom navigation and a Bose sound system, but further details of specifications and prices will be announced in October.

Renault will begin selling the updated Renault Laguna in the UK in November – three years after the current generation of the hatch was first introduced.
