Which used Renault Laguna estate should I buy?

The Laguna was the first family car to win a five-star occupant safety rating from Euro NCAP. Each has four airbags, plus anti-lock brakes, topping off above-average kit levels across the range.

Unlike the Laguna hatch, the Sport Tourer has no low-end Authentique trim, and no 1.8 petrol engine. The 2.0 ought to pull well, but it puffs when five adults and their gear are aboard. Instead, go for a diesel, preferably the 130bhp 1.9. It pulls hard yet will return up to 47mpg. Avoid the 3.0 V6 petrol motor, though. It comes with a standard auto gearbox that isn't nearly as slick as you'd want it to be.
