What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's stylish and comfortable, as well as being well equipped with first-rate safety features

Against There's a shortage of luggage space, smaller engines are underpowered, and reliability is poor

Verdict It's pleasant (without being especially good) and outstandingly safe, but reliability is a definite worry

Go for… 1.9 dCi 130 Dynamique

Avoid… 3.0 V6 Privilege

Renault Laguna Sport Tourer
  • 1. Turbos have been known to break on the dCi diesels and sometimes the intercooler can be a problem
  • 2. Temperamental engine electronics can cause misfires or, in rare instances, total loss of power
  • 3. Electronic glitches can affect windows, the tyre pressure monitor, and the keyless entry/engine start system
  • 4. Check the tyre tread - some Lagunas are a bit heavy on their fronts, and you don’t want to land a bill for a new pair
  • 5. The boot is designed more for looks than outright practicality, yet it can still hold a decent amount
