What's the used Renault Laguna hatchback like?
It's the quintessential fleet car, but that doesn't stop the third-generation Renault Laguna offering great value on the used market. Higher than average depreciation from new means you get a lot of car for your money.
Previous models had a stodgy ride, but this version of the Laguna, introduced in 2007, is good to drive, has sharp steering and plenty of grip through corners. However, the firm ride can be uncomfortable on some roads.
Wind and road noise is kept to a minimum - even at motorway speeds.
Knee- and legroom is good throughout the cabin, but the sloping roofline will cause problems for taller rear-seat passengers. The boot is too shallow, which limits practicality.
The quality of cabin materials, and the contemporary design of the dashboard give the Renault an upmarket feel.
