New Car: 2011 Renault Laguna

The show-stoppers keep coming at Renault! These are the official pictures of the new Laguna that will be unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, joining the European-spec Latitude which debuted in Moscow last week.

The evergreen French saloon has been updated for 2011 and sports a number of styling tweaks and mechanical changes intended to bring the Laguna’s styling closer to the rest of the range, although the coupé will remain unchanged.

The redesigned nose features a much narrower grille, outlined in chrome, that shares its look with the current Mégane GT. Chrome inserts also feature on the swept new foglight clusters, and the headlights have been topped off with a wide reflective ‘eyebrow’ to give the saloon a more imposing front end.

The new car will get an upgraded, cleaner version of the current 1.5 dCi engine, producing 108bhp but emitting just 120g/km of CO2, meaning the new Laguna would cost just £30 a year in road tax, and it will be exempt from the new showroom tax.

Inside, there are new options on all trim-levels, including a TomTom live satellite navigation system and a high-performance Bose sound system.

The innovative 4Control four-wheel steering system, which aids handling and was previously only available on high powered GT versions of the Laguna, will now be an option on the best-selling 178bhp 2.0-litre diesel, the new car will be on sale in the U.K. by November, with exact prices and specs annouced closer to the release date.
