Renault Laguna

The Renault Laguna is a large family car produced by the French manufacturer Renault. Launched in 1994, the original model was replaced by an all-new Laguna in 2000.

First generation

The first generation Renault Laguna was launched early in 1994 as replacement for the Renault 21 liftback, initially also coming as a liftback only. In late 1995, an estate version, known in some markets as the Laguna Grandtour, was introduced, and replaced the 21-based Renault Savanna/Nevada. The available engines included 1.6, 1.8 and 2.0 petrol and a 2.2 diesel. A 3.0 V6 with automatic transmission joined the lineup after 1995.

Laguna's equipment levels were gradually getting more lavish, and soon all models came with power steering, electric front windows, driver's airbag and remote central locking as standard. Most of the range had twin airbags, antilock brakes, air-conditioning and CD player as either optional or standard equipment.

At the start of 1998 the Laguna received a moderate facelift, including a restyling of rear lights and a few other minor visual tweaks. More notably, the engines were updated and, in some markets, equipment levels enhanced again.

2000 saw the final edition of this Laguna - the Laguna Concorde. It had many extras, including semi-leather seats and vocal warnings like "your computer is now checking systems".

Second generation

At the end of 2000, after almost seven years of production, the original Laguna was replaced by an all-new model which shared its chassis with the Nissan Primera (which arrived a year later). The engines were upgraded and the equipment list made longer. It was the first vehicle available in Europe to score 5 stars in the EuroNCAP crash test results. The Laguna featured a 'keyless' ignition system which, instead of a key, used a credit card style device to unlock the car and start the engine - although the card is easily broken and expensive to replace. The styling of the second generation Laguna was heavily influenced by the Initiale concept car. Unfortunately, despite the technological advances, the Laguna II has not enjoyed a reputation for reliability, frequently appearing near the bottom of the J. D. Power tables.
