Renault Laguna (2007 – 2012) Review
Renault Laguna (2007 – 2012) At A Glance
The Laguna III Sports Tourer is bigger in all respects than its predecessor: longer, wider and taller. Despite that, it’s 15-65kg lighter (depending on model). The growth certainly helps interior space: there’s plenty of legroom in the rear, with decent headroom for tall people, too.
It also boosts luggage volume to 501 litres with all seats raised (up 26 litres) and 1593 with the seats folded (up 78 litres). There’s a clever one-touch facility that folds the rear seats without you having to grapple with them. The seat backs fold completely flat, although the seat bases don’t tumble. You’re left with a load floor that’s just over 2 metres long and, although the boot is a little narrow and the sloping tailgate intrudes on space, it’s well shaped for large objects. Another clever feature is a parcel shelf that not only slides back with a simple finger touch, it can also be stowed in a special area under the boot floor. We like the separately opening upper tailgate but it’s only standard on the Initiale – for other models, you’ll need to pay £150 extra.
The Sports Tourer also looks much better than the hatchback, which helps explain why it will take up to 50 per cent of all Laguna sales. Significantly, the typical profile for the estate buyer is far younger: while the average age of the Laguna hatchback owner is mid-50s, the Tourer’s is more like 40.
