Next Laguna to have better design, Renault marketing exec said

The Renault Laguna executive vehicle may have failed in the market due to its poor design, but a better-looking variant will be introduced in the future, according to the automaker's marketing director Stephen Norman. He stated that the automobile was a "good car in the wrong clothes," explaining that there was nothing wrong in the vehicle's ride and handling or its quality.

Norman has also emphasized that they are not pulling out of the executive market because they cannot let the Volkswagen Passat "have the market to itself in the upper medium segment."

Rather, the automaker has to get the right design for the next Laguna, as customers in this segment anticipate that their vehicles speak about their status. Norman thinks that Citroen is doing the right thing with the C5 and the DS5. He emphasized, however, that Renault will not copy these models.

Next Renault Laguna might become a crossover

The format for the new Renault Laguna set to arrive within three years will determine if it will be offered in the UK. Renault had decided previously to remove the existing Laguna from the UK market. Obviously, if the new model is similar to it, then it won’t be brought to the UK as well.

When interviewed by What Car?, Thierry Sybord (the UK boss of Renault) said that the company will decide within the next three months if a right-hand-drive version of the next Mondeo rival will be made.

He explained that if the next-gen Laguna is the same, it can’t possibly be successful in the UK. Sybord admitted that Renault is inspired by the success that the Nissan Qashqai has had.

Renault starts taking orders for Laguna Coupe Monaco GP special edition

The order books for the second run of the Renault Laguna Coupe Monaco GP special edition have been opened. This vehicle was first displayed at the Geneva Motor Show together with a similar version of the Megane, which can be ordered in France. Renault noticed that 400 of the first version samples quickly sold out.

The Laguna Coupe Monaco GP is based on the Black Edition model and it features Pearlescent White bodywork and contrasting black mirror housings and roof. These two items are built specially for this edition. It also features Pearlescent Black paintwork and badging will be fitted on the sides and the grille.

The models will be fitted with a set of black Interlagos 18-inch alloy wheels. The interior has a contrasting Pearlescent White trim on the central console, doors and dashboard and a two-tone fabric upholstery (which has black and grey accents).

Renault is planning more radical model for future Laguna

Renault will take the safe route with the next Laguna but it is planning a more radical model in the longer term. The next Laguna is described by Renault marketing boss Steve Norman as “a very good mainstream solution.” It won’t have the Laguna name but it will be "supported” by more models designed with Samsung in Korea.

It’s likely that the next-gen Latitude (to be named Safrane) is one of these models. The next generation Laguna, due in 2015/2016, is inspired by Audi’s A5 Sportback and Infiniti’s Etherea.

Product chief Beatrice Foucher said to Autocar that Renault “can be more innovative with this car.” Plans to radicalize the next-generation Espace have been halted.

After its first public appearance in the Paris Motor Show early this month, Renault has now established the price of its long-awaited new Laguna Coupe which ranges from £20,995 ($35,661 or €27,025) to £27,995 ($47,542 or €36,034). The new Laguna lead vehicle has more than just the segment-leading Bmw 3-series Coupe in its view.

With a bundle of high-performance engines, remarkable equipment performance and 4Control chassis in its Coupe GT semblance, the graceful four-seater has a daunting battery of accessories.

The Coupe series has the best engines from the New Laguna variety, as well as two of its own, both equipped with the arrival of the powerful V6. There will be four engines available during its launching, two each for both petrol and diesel, the 2.0 Turbo 205 hp and 3.5 V6 240 hp with the 2.0 dCi 150 hp and 2.0 dCi 180 hp, respectively.
