Chronology
Predecessor Renault 21

The Renault Laguna is a large family car by European standards and is produced by the French manufacturer Renault. The first Laguna was launched in 1993, the second generation was launched in 2000, and the third generation was made available for sale in October 2007. Despite its ability to comfortably carry 5 passengers, in the North American market, this vehicle, in sedan, five door hatchback, and estate (station wagon) versions, is classified as a "Compact" car by US EPA standards.

The regular production Renault passenger models are unrelated to the concept car of the same name, the Laguna, a two-seat roadster shown by the automaker during the European 1990 auto show circuit.[1] The name was also previously used from 1973 to 1976 by Chevrolet for a top-of-the-line Chevelle model, the Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna.

In December 2011, Renault announced that the Laguna, Espace, Kangoo, Modus, and Wind lines would be axed in the United Kingdom as part of a cost-cutting plan to help the company earn a profit.

The above models all ceased production in the United Kingdom in the early months of 2012.

This change took effect in February 2012. The Laguna, Espace, Kangoo, and Modus lines are still available in the rest of Europe including Ireland.

Road testing commenced in 1991 and continued throughout 1992, the first generation Renault Laguna was launched in December 1993 as a replacement for the Renault 21, initially coming as a hatchback only. Late in 1995 it was introduced as an estate version, known in some markets as the Laguna Sports Tourer, and replaced the 21-based Renault Savanna/Nevada. It was initially launched as a 1.8 RN/RT, 2.0RT/RXE and 3.0V6. A sports pack with deep front spoiler, rear spoiler and alloy wheels was available on 2.0 versions. This coincided with Renault's participation in European Touring Car championships.

The Laguna's equipment levels were generally much higher than the Renault 21. From launch, all models came with power steering, electric front windows, and remote central locking as standard. Most of the range had a driver's airbag. Later twin airbags, anti-lock braking system, air-conditioning, and a CD player became either optional extras or standard equipment.

Facelift[edit]

Facelifted Renault Laguna I

At the start of 1998 the Laguna received a moderate facelift, including a restyling of the hatchback and the Sports Tourer versions, and a redesigned front. This also included a different facelifted design of the taillights, most noticeable are the circular fog-lights in the front.

More notably, the engines were updated and, in some markets, equipment levels were enhanced again. Five new engines featured in the completed facelifted line-up:

  • K4M 1.6 16v (107 hp)
  • F4P 1.8 16v (120 hp)
  • F3R 2.0 (114 hp)
  • N7Q 2.0 S (140 hp)
  • F4R 2.0 16v (139 hp)
  • L7X 3.0 V6 24v (190 hp)
  • F9Q turbo 1.9 dTi (turbo-charged direct injection) (98 hp)
  • F9Q turbo 1.9 dCi (turbo-charged common rail direct injection) (107 hp)
  • G8T turbo 2.2 dT (turbo-charged indirect injection) (113 hp)

2000 saw the final edition of this Laguna - the Laguna Concorde. It included semi-leather seats and vocal warnings like "Welcome. The vehicle computer... is now checking systems for you". The on-board computer would notify the driver of any doors not being closed, lights left on etc., weather (Please brake carefully the road is watery)or other faults in the electrical/mechanical circuits. The onboard voice synthesizer warnings system was also available on the earlier 1998 RXE and V6 models. This is the same basic unit as is used in the Renault Safrane.

The Mk1 model has many bad reviews and reliability issues with everything from rear wheel bearing problems (a common Renault problem over several models) and heavy depreciation to problems with the bonnet latches (Renault use an unusual system that is difficult to set up properly). The reviews tended to be worse for the hatchback, with it suffering many more complaints and breakdowns than the estate variant, although no reasoning for this has been found.[2]

The Laguna "Concorde" model was the last guise of the 'old' Laguna's to be marketed prior to the release of the Laguna II in 2000, the last of the Mk.1 Laguna's were registered in February 2000 and the Concorde range all feature a cream letter "C" on a dark green background, with the outline of a Concorde aircraft above the letter.

The Laguna's card system, and the replacement for a key-ignition

At the end of 2000, after almost seven years of production, the original Laguna was replaced by an entirely all-new model which shared its chassis with the Nissan Primera (which arrived a year later). The engines were upgraded and the equipment list made longer. Widely regarded as one of the safest vehicles on the road today, it was the first vehicle available in Europe to achieve 5 stars in the EuroNCAP crash test results, a feature which was soon followed by all other models in Renault UK's current model line-up.

The Laguna featured a 'keyless' ignition system which, instead of a key, used a credit card style device to unlock the car and start the engine. The styling of the second generation Laguna was heavily influenced by the Initiale concept car. This was the 2002 Semperit Irish Car of the Year in Ireland.

The Laguna estate was only available with five seats, unlike the previous model which has seven seats as an option on some versions. It was badged as Sports Tourer or Grandtour depending on the country, and was marketed as a lifestyle vehicle rather than a load carrier.

Facelift[edit]

The Laguna II was relaunched in March 2005, according to Renault with improved security, driving performance and comfort.

It also had a moderate redesign of the air intake at the front of the car, now matching the design of the Megane. An electronic handbrake was also introduced, this was previously seen on the Scenic and Espace. The engines were much the same as before, with the 1.6 and 1.8 petrol units being offered in some markets, while other countries get a 2.0 petrol unit (turbo or non-turbo) and two diesels (1.9 or 2.2 direct-injection).

After the facelift, a whole new diesel engine was introduced, the 2.0 dCi with 150 hp (112 kW) and another variant of the engine which produced 175 hp (130 kW), this variant was the most powerful 2 litre diesel engine in the world as of May 2007.

The Renault Laguna III was officially announced in a press release on June 4, 2007. The car was unveiled to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and it went on sale in October 2007. The car comes as a 5-door liftback, as a 5-door estate and a 3-door coupe now. This third generation is based on the platform D, shared with the Nissan Altima, the Nissan Teana, and the Nissan Murano.

The Laguna III is the first car to have gone through Aubevoye Technical Centre's Electro-Magnetic Compatibility unit in the course of its development.

It was first presented as a concept car at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, which followed some styling cues of the previous Renault Fluence concept car. The production version was revealed at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, coinciding with the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix to take the wraps off. The brand new V6 dCi engine delivers 235 hp (173 kW), while the new 3.5-litre petrol powered V6 offers 240 hp (175 kW). The Laguna Coupé later appeared before the general public at the Paris Motor Show in October 2008.

In January 2008, spy images of a possible Laguna Sedan appeared on the internet.[3]

The Renault Latitude and the third generation (L43) Renault Samsung SM5 made by Renault Samsung Motors in South Korea is based on the Laguna III.

Facelift[edit]

A facelifted version of the Laguna III, called the Phase 2, débuted at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, and sales began in November 2010.

It has an aggressive front end compared to the older model. The range has been redesigned around six trim levels: Expression, Black Edition, Eco Business, Bose, GT 4Control and Initiale. Engine side, the only change is the engine 1.5 dCi 110 hp, with CO2 emissions decreased from 130 to 120g/km.
