The Renault Laguna 1.5 dCi 110 Dynamique Sport Tourer – AM’s latest long-termer – accounts for a third of all Sport Tourer sales.

While Renault will not release unit volumes, it says sales are split evenly between fleet and retail, with buyers predominantly male, aged 30+, with families. Its main competitors come in the shape of Ford Mondeo, Citroën C5, Vauxhall Insignia and Volkswagen Passat.

Emitting 133g/km of CO2, our test model comes under Renault’s Eco2 branding, which is used to highlight its most environmentally-friendly vehicles. It offers an official combined mpg of 56.5mpg, and its eco-focus is further reinforced with the inclusion of a gearshift prompt on the dashboard, which tells you when to change gear to get maximum fuel efficiency.

Despite this focus, the Laguna surpasses performance expectations – especially considering it has a relatively small 1.5-litre turbodiesel engine hauling an upper-medium estate.
Starting at £18,885, it is also competitively priced.

Our model, costing £21,684, has 3D satellite navigation, Bluetooth link, MP3-compatible stereo/CD, in conjunction with Comfort Pack (climate control, auto parking brake, automatic headlights and wipers) as well as metallic paint and the S Pack for its larger alloys and better seats. But rear parking sensors are a noticeable omission and are a £300 option.

Standard equipment includes cruise control, leather steering wheel, front fog lights, chrome window surrounds, and part-leather/part-cloth seats. 

Due to relaunch next year, an updated version will give dealers the opportunity to upsell a new TomTom edition for an extra £360 which will have a fully-integrated TomTom system.

This will be available on Renault Selections (PCP) and on contract hire for the same monthly rental as Dynamique.

Will the third Renault Twingo make up for its siblings?

The funky and customisable Renault Twingo city car has much to recommend it.
