Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 31 - 67 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Diesel buyers will enjoy affordable fuel bills, though the automatic 2.0-litre petrol is thirstiest which compromises average Renault Laguna Sport Tourer running costs. Insurance groupings range from seven to 11 and road tax is affordable. Renault servicing is reasonably priced, although their dealers don't have a glowing reputation for customer care.

Depreciation will be very steep, too.

As you'd expect, Renault Laguna Sport Tourer emissions will be lowest if you go for the diesel versions. The low-powered 110bhp 1.5-litre diesel is the cost-effective choice. It’s the cheapest to buy, insure and run: returning almost 57mpg and emitting low levels of CO2 (133g/km). Those wishing to do their bit for the environment should probably avoid the automatic 2.0-litre turbo, which manages just 31mpg and produces 210g/km CO2.

For improved fuel economy, the trip computer on higher-spec models hints when to change gear.

It's too early to confirm whether Renault Laguna Sport Tourer reliability is as strong as Renault claims, but early signs are good. The interior plastics look and feel durable, upholstery is high-quality and the engines feel robust.
