What's the used Renault Laguna hatchback like?
If you're after a car to set your pulse racing, then the Renault Laguna probably isn't for you. However, if you need a car that'll chew up a long journey with the minimum of hassle, then it's definitely worth a look.
It has a supple suspension that soaks up bumps with ease, while it contains wind and road noise better than most cars of this age and type. However, the smaller engines can be raucous if you work them hard, so choose carefully.
The cabin is smart and solid, and there's space enough for five to travel in reasonable comfort. The seats are comfortable, and all but the basic RN model come with driver's seat height adjustment. Visibility, too, is very good.
The hatchback also provides an impressively big boot, making it a practical family car.
