   The Renault Laguna II was produced between 2001 and 2007. It was available as a hatchback or estate. In 2005 this large family car was facelifted.

   Engine range of the Laguna starts with the 1.9-liter turbo diesel. This engine is economical, but underpowered for a large car. The entry-level 1.6-liter petrol performs better and is sufficient driving in town. The 1.9-liter turbo diesel is an excellent choice. There is also a new 2.0-liter diesel, developing 150 hp. A range topping 3.0-liter petrol has an impressive performance, even though it is coupled with an automatic gearbox.

   The Laguna features a smooth ride and a well suited handling. It is very stable on any type of roads. Furthermore the ride comfort is perfect over town potholes and bumps. However, the steering is short on precision and feedback. The GT version comes with sports suspension that improves handling.

   Inside the car wind and road noises are well suppressed. Engines are also quiet even as the revs go up.

   Considering that the Renault Laguna is one of the cheapest cars in it's class, it gives you a very good value for money. It's fuel consumption won't brake your budget. Resale values are also respectable. Servicing costs are not higher than average. However it is worth mentioning that a number of engine problems were reported.

   Interior of the car is classy refined. It carried over a quality standard set for the previous model. It's controls are well placed and smooth in operation. Furthermore there are plenty of oddments space.

   Inside the car there is slightly cramped feel. But it is worth mentioning that the Renault Laguna is not as large and spacious than most of the family cars. Driver's position is good. The only bad thing is a slightly restricted rear visibility.

   At the back taller adults will find the headroom restricted. Foot room for the rear passengers is also poor. Apart that the car is versatile enough. The Laguna has a well-shaped boot.

   The Laguna received a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating. It was achieved by a good standard safety equipment, including four airbags, side curtains, anti-lock brakes and strong shell. It also comes with full list of security features to keep the thieves away and to make it easy to identify if stolen.

   The Renault Laguna has some unusual goodies like keyless entry and starting. All cars come with an air-conditioning, electric windows, heated mirrors and a CD player. The GT trim adds satellite navigation and leather upholstery. Navigation trim come with a standard satellite navigation as well.


   Advantages: Stylish inside and out. The cabin has plenty of space for five and comes with loads of safety gear.

   Disadvantages: The smaller petrol engines struggle on the motorway. Rear head space is restricted.

   Verdict:  Laguna is comfortable and stylish cruiser.

   Also consider: Citroen C5, Peugeot 407.
