Renault has released pricing and details of the 2011 Laguna Hatch and Sport Tourer models.

The new line-up comes in three trim levels while the Coupe remains unchanged. Five engines are available - a 2.0-litre 140bhp petrol, a 1.5-litre dCi diesel with 110bhp and a 2.0-litre diesel that comes in 150, 175 and 180bhp variants.

All models in the range come with a CD radio, Bluetooth, alloy wheels, air-conditioning, iPod connectivity, stability control and front fog lights as standard.

The Dynamique TomTom is set to be the best seller and comes with more equipment including an automatic parking brake, headlight washers, cruise control, twin chrome exhausts, dual-zone climate control, rear parking sensors and a speed limiter. The TomTom versions also get an integrated satellite navigation system.

The range-topping GT Line model adds bigger alloy wheels, an updated stereo and leather and alacantara trim with heated electric front seats.

Optional extras include directional xenon headlights, daytime running lights and a panoramic sunroof. Four-wheel steering is also available on the dCi 180 model.

Two option packs are available, offering savings compared to buying individual options. The first, Comfort, gives drivers even greater levels of convenience, with dual zone climate control, an automatic parking brake, headlights and wipers.

The second, Initiale Lux, is available on the Dynamique TomTom model. Its includes larger alloy wheels, a better stereo, electric folding door mirrors, GT leather steering wheel and metallic paint.

The new range also benefits from a series of engine improvements that reduces emissions while reputedly improving fuel economy. The lowest emitting engine is the 1.5-litre 110bhp diesel with 120g/km of CO2, resulting in company car tax payable at 13%.

All new models are available to order now with prices starting at £17,795, while Sport Tourer versions are £1,100 higher than those of the Hatch.
