Comfortable, first-class safety rating
Complicated switchgear, limited rear headroom; reliability problems
Renault Laguna Hatchback rivals
Renault does a good job of advertising their cars with French flair, and Laguna II aims to bring executive style and substance to the fleet and family sector. It’s big and roomy, while the attractively sculpted body looks and feels more solid than the old Laguna, plus it was the first car to be awarded a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Equipment specifications are generous, too.
A minor facelift in 2005 added a more up-market interior with better quality materials.
