Which used Renault Laguna coupe should I buy?
Of the five engines available, we'd recommend the 2.0-litre diesel, with either 148bhp or 176bhp. The lower-powered version is the more common, and gives decent pace and reasonable running costs, while the 176bhp version (available only in GT trim) is genuinely fast.
There is also a 232bhp 3.0 V6 diesel, which comes with an automatic gearbox. Petrol options include a turbocharged 201bhp 2.0-litre and an automatic-only 3.5 V6 with 235bhp. The first is acceptable, but won't hold its value that well, while the second is fast yet expensive to run.
