Which used Renault Laguna estate should I buy?
Seven-seat versions are scarce and those extra two seats eat into the boot space, so we'd stick with five-seaters.
That decided, the 1.9 turbodiesel, available from the car's 1999 face-lift, is the pick of the range. It pulls hard from low revs, is acceptably smooth and very economical. Otherwise, the 1.8 and 2.0 petrol motors are both fine. We'd give the 1.6 a miss because it struggles when the car is full.
