New Renault Laguna

14 November 2010

New Renault Laguna’s more assertive front-end styling – which features ‘eyelid’ headlights with black masks as standard, as well as additional chrome trimming for the new pearlescent black grille – gives the model an unmistakably more dynamic stance. It immediately comes across as more nervous and playful, and points to the promise of even greater driving pleasure.

New Laguna was designed to deliver real driving pleasure. Its benchmark dynamics benefit from an impressively efficient chassis which is powered by a broad choice of particularly capable, fuel-efficient powerplants.

Those versions of New Renault Laguna equipped with the 4Control chassis and four-wheel steering boast exceptional on-road performance for even greater pleasure, safety and efficiency. Now associated with the dCi 130, dCi 150 and dCi 175 (with automatic transmission) core-range engines, this exclusive Renault innovation is today available for even more motorists to enjoy.

In addition to its outstanding dynamics, New Renault Laguna comes with a long list of equipment, including two audio systems – the core-range 3D Sound by Arkamys® system and the high-end Bose® Sound System – and a choice of integrated Carminat TomTom® Live or Carminat Bluetooth® DVD navigation, plus Bluetooth® telephony
and digital Plug&Music connectivity.

New Renault Laguna benefits from extensive work into enhancing acoustic comfort, a field in which the model – and notably its diesel versions – stands out as the segment’s benchmark. Travelling comfort is ensured by a raft of driver aids which include an electronic parking brake, cruise control with speed limiter, automatic headlight and windscreen-wiper activation, etc. The high standard of ride comfort, meanwhile, enables the driver and occupants to savour the car’s outstanding dynamics.

Last but not least, travelling comfort is heightened by the availability of dual-zone, triple-mode (Soft, Auto and Fast) automatic climate control incorporating an automatic cabin-air recycling function and a toxicity sensor.

Laguna is unanimously acclaimed for its build quality and reliability (TOP3 ranking), its dynamics (thanks to its 4Control chassis) and its segment-topping safety performance (a five-star EuroNCAP rating with a score of 36 points from a possible 37).
