What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For The ride is comfortable and the interior is smart

Against It’s not as much fun to drive as a Mondeo

Verdict A comfortable tourer, but let down by patchy reliability

Go for… 2.2 turbodiesel

Avoid… 3.0-litre V6

Renault Laguna Hatchback
  • 1. Axle and suspension problems are the most common complaint
  • 2. Coolant system can be iffy, so take a long test drive to watch for signs of overheating
  • 3. Petrol models seem to be quite hard on gearboxes. Ensure all gears, including reverse, engage smoothly
  • 4. The hatchback has an impressively big boot, making it a practical family car
  • 5. Water pumps on the diesels have a tendency to seize
