Renault face-lifts the Laguna

These are the first photos of the face-lifted Renault Laguna, which will be officially unveiled at the Paris motor show at the end of this month.

The most obvious changes are at the front end, where both the hatchback and Sport Tourer models (but not the Coupe, which remains unchanged) get revised headlights and bumpers, with a new design of grille below the numberplate.

More efficient engines
Along with the cosmetic surgery, all the engines have been revised to meet Euro V regulations, with the result that emissions have dropped across the entire range. In the hatchback, the 1.5 dCi 110 engine now emits just 120g/km of CO2, 10g/km less than before.

The face-lifted Renault Laguna Estate that will be at the Paris motor show4Control system
In the UK, three trims will be available Expression, Dynamique and GT Line with the companys 4Control system available on models with the 2.0 dCi 180 engine.

This allows the rear wheels to turn slightly, with the angle and direction depending on the circumstances. The company says it gives better manoeuvrability at low speeds, increased stability at high speeds, and more safety in an emergency.

Prices for the revised models will be announced in mid-October, with the car going on sale in November.
