Anyone who views the New Renault Laguna Estate will definitely sense the car’s sophistication and aesthetic appeal within a minute. The car’s profile is best described as fluid and steamlined. Following the designs of the exterior with your eyes, you’ll be amazed at how the rear windows and roof bars blend nicely into the overall aesthetic quality of the Renault Laguna.
A black grille is incorporated into the front bumper, with the grille made out of a pearlescent material for that unique shine and matte. The car’s exterior designs are trimmed appropriately with chrome furnishes. A dynamic-looking stance is made possible by the waistline, a component that reaches around the rear of the vehicle.
Immediately above the boot lid, you can find the smoke LED rear lights that give out a distinctive light that will make other drivers immediately recognize the Laguna Estate from afar. Look closer at the bottom part of the rear and you can find twin exhaust tail pipes, a feature that is notably present in higher performance models in the New Renault line.
The dual aerial that is always present in other models in New Renault has been redesigned in the Laguna Estate as well. It has been incorporated into the design to maintain the fluidity that makes the Laguna Estate’s exteriors distinctive and unique.
Eleven centimeters longer than its saloon cousin, the New Renault Laguna Estate gives a lot of space and functionality into the interiors as well. The rear compartment has enough space for 1,593 liters of cargo, but only if one chooses to stow the rear seats in favor of baggage. However, when one is accommodating passengers in the rear, there is still considerable space remaining – there is a total space of 508 liters in that configuration.
The materials used for the upholsteries in the interior of the Laguna Estate speak of sophistication and elegance. In addition, the designers have paid a lot of effort to implementing the details in the dashboard and air vents. Finally, the designers have done a good job in mixing colors for the trimming in the interior to give the Estate a high-end look and feel.
The dashboard has been expertly laid out and designed as well. It incorporates the radio and navigation displays to fully optimize the space available, while placing the controls and displays in positions that are within easy access to the driver.
