What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For There's lots of usable space and good levels of equipment. The ride is pleasantly soft, too

Against It's unreliable. Also, the seven-seat option cuts luggage space drastically

Verdict A cheap load-lugger that may cost a mint to run

Go for… 1.9 DTi Alize

Avoid… 2.0 Sport auto

Renault Laguna Estate
  • 1. Immobiliser and alternator faults are common
  • 2. The heating system can rust and leaks into the footwells
  • 3. Auto and manual gearboxes can need a rebuild at any time after 60,000 miles
  • 4. There's plenty of space in the cabin, and a trio of three-point belts across the rear seat
  • 5. The boot is wide, with a flat floor. Optional extra seats eat into luggage space, even when not in use
