Ownership cost

What used Renault Laguna hatchback will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Renault Laguna hatchback?

Overall, running costs are pretty average. Servicing bills are typically higher than for a Ford Mondeo or Vauxhall Vectra, and significantly dearer than the Peugeot 407's, but cheaper than the Laguna's other rival, the Citroen C5.

However, if something goes wrong, it isn't likely to be that cheap to fix. Figures from Warranty Direct suggest the norm for repair costs is roughly 50% higher than for the Mondeo, Vectra and C5. In addition, some owners find front tyres wear quicker than expected.

Insurance is more modest and fuel bills are positively bashful. Our favourite car, the 150bhp 2.0 dCi diesel, yields an official 48.7mpg combined average, which is slightly better than the 130bhp 1.9 dCi and slightly worse than the 120bhp 1.9 dCi. The petrols range from high-30s to the gallon for the 1.6s and 1.8s to high-20s for the V6.
