Renault Introduces New Laguna; Another eco2 Model

The New Laguna.

Renault has introduced its next version of the Laguna. Renault will unveil the New Laguna to the public at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show and the car will go on sale in October 2007.

One of the New Laguna models, the 110 hp (81 kW) 1.5 dCi diesel, offers fuel consumption of 5.1 l/100km (46 mpg US); CO2 emissions of 136 g/km; and incorporates more than 35 kg of recycled plastic and 15 kg of renewable materials. These attributes qualify this model for Renault’s eco2 label.

The New Laguna also will come with three versions of the higher power 2.0-liter diesel (earlier post) and two versions of a 2.0-liter gasoline engine.

Renault targeted the New Laguna directly in its Renault Commitment 2009 plan, committing to having the new model rank among the top three cars in its segment in terms of product and service quality. (Earlier post.)



It´s a pity, that Renault does not offer a turbo charged small displacement patrol engine like VW or GM Europe does.
A 1.4-1.6L Turbo-Otto would be a quite, powerful, efficent and clean choice.
I think, Renault is only targeting the French market.


46 MPG US is quite a figure for a car of this size.
I wonder what the 0-60 will be.
It would also be nice to add stop-start to it in a year or two. Then people in towns would have less diesel fumes to put up with.
Well done Renault!
I think they are targeting the European market - not just the French one - it is too small for this level of investment.

What about the Spanish market, Italian, British.. not all the cars are sold in Germany, and not all the drivers drive at 200 km/h in the motorway.

The downsizing is great, I wonder how much is consuming at higher speeds than 120km/h.
