Renault has released UK pricing and specification for the Laguna 2011 Hatch and Sport Tourer models, with savings of up to £1,855 available compared to the previous range.
Following a simplified range structure, the new line-up incorporates three core trim levels, Expression, Dynamique TomTom and GT Line TomTom. The Laguna Coupé is unaffected by the changes.
For the entry-level Expression, this includes Arkamys 3D Sound single CD/radio MP3 with BluetoothTM and fingertip control, 16" alloy wheels, air conditioning, aux input, ESC and front fog lights.
For Dynamique TomTom, the extra equipment consists of automatic parking brake, headlights and wipers, cruise control, chrome twin exhausts (excluding dCi 110), dual zone climate control, electrically heated and folding door mirrors, hands-free keycard, rear parking sensors, multi-functional TunePoint (for portable music players) and speed limiter. These versions also feature Carminat TomTom Live ®, the latest edition of Renault's integrated satellite navigation system.
These services are free of charge for a three-month trial period, after which an annual subscription can be taken out via the TomTom HOME application. Pricing for this has yet to be confirmed in the UK, but is likely to be in the region of £60.
The Laguna 2011 range also benefits from a series of engine enhancements, resulting in reduced emissions and greater fuel economy across the range. The new line-up includes fully Euro 5-compliant engines, plus ten ‘eco2' branded versions with sub-140 grams CO2, covering each of the dCi 110 and 150 diesel-engined variants. Among the most prominent changes are the least emitting 1.5-litre dCi 110 which now emits even less than previously at 120 grams. The 2.0 dCi 180 has also gone down by 13 grams and the 2.0 16V 140 petrol by 7 grams. The dCi 110 is now able to achieve 60.1 mpg on the combined cycle, up from 57.6, while the dCi 180 has risen from 45.6 to 49.5.
Pricing for the Laguna 2011 Hatch and Sport Tourer models start from £17,795.
