Renault brought out the Laguna 3 in 2007, and after only three years of production, they are co,ming out with a facelift version for the coupe. The Renault Laguna lift-back and Sports Tourer will both be getting a little work done before they are displayed at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September. The new versions will go on sale across Europe in November.
The facelifted Laguna will be getting a more aggressive front end design, including new headlamps and a restyled bumper featuring a more prominent grille. It will be available in the dCi 180 engine and will contain the 4Control four-wheel steering system.
And following the new Euro5 emissions standards set, the new Renault Laguna will feature Euro 5 engines and lower CO2 on all engines (including the dCi 110 which emits 10 grams of CO2 less than the previous model).
The Laguna will also have technology spread throughout the interior with a Carminat TomTom Live® navigation system and Bose® sound system.
Renault will unveil the special edition Laguna Coupé Monaco GP on April 9 at the Cabriolet, Coupé and SUV Show which will shortly open at the Porte de Versailles exhibition complex in Paris, France.
This special edition will be distinguished by a twotone pearlescent white and pearlescent black livery. The model comes with a leather interior trim, as well as such desirable technologies as Carminat TomTom navigation, Bose audio, xenon headlights and, above all, the acclaimed 4Control chassis which delivers impeccable roadholding.

Renault has chosen the glamorous weekend which sees the Cannes Film Festival coincide with the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix to take the wraps off Laguna Coupe. The flowing lines of the newcomer’s elegant, uncluttered design express timeless beauty and the promise of sheer motoring enjoyment.
Its performance provides unprecedented pleasure behind the wheel thanks to the combination of its Active Drive chassis equipped with four-wheel steering – which has been acclaimed by the media across Europe on the GT version of Renault Laguna – and the two new V6 powerplants which have been introduced at the same time as this image-forging vehicle. The brand new V6 dCi, which is poised to become a benchmark in terms of performance and pleasure, delivers 235hp (173kW), while the new 3.5-litre petrolpowered V6 offers 240hp (175kW). Laguna Coupe stands out as an inspiring, fourseater with genuine sensual appeal and will be shown in further detail at the forthcoming Paris Motor Show in October.
Renault Laguna Coupe bears a close resemblance to the racy concept car revealed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 2007, while its elegant styling and proportions boast all the hallmarks associated with truly exceptional coupes. Its distinctive front end suggests the presence under the bonnet of the finest Renault-Nissan Alliance engines which have been designed and developed to ensure supreme driving enjoyment. Indeed, Renault Laguna Coupe is capable of accelerating from standstill to 100kph in less than seven seconds, and this upper-range performance combines with the Active Drive chassis and four-wheel steering to deliver optimum pleasure at the wheel.
Renault announced today a new limited edition Laguna. Available for Expression and Carminat version, the new Laguna Black Edition adds a price of only 200 euro to a standard model.

It incorporates integrated Carminat CD Bluetooth® navigation as standard for an additional cost of just €700.

After unveiling the Laguna Coupe this week-end at the Cannes Film Festival, Renault today revealed the first official videos of the sportscar that will make its official debut in October at the Paris Motor Show.
Laguna Coupe come equipped with two new V6 powerplants which have been introduced at the same time as this image-forging vehicle. The brand new V6 dCi, which is poised to become a benchmark in terms of performance and pleasure, delivers 235hp, while the new 3.5-litre petrol-powered V6 offers 240hp.
Renault launched a mini web site for the future Laguna Coupe that announced that the car will be launched in 26 hours (Saturday 24th may, at 7:00 PM, GMT+1 ). The Laguna Coupe will make its official public debut in autumn at the Paris Motor Show.
The Laguna Coupe was first launched as a concept car last year at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The concept version was powered by a 2,993cc V6 dCi engine that delivers 230-265hp and a maximum torque of 450-550Nm, depending on the version.
Sales will begin in Europe during the fourth quarter of the year.
The production version of the Laguna Coupe and the Megane 5-doors versions were caught in Australia. Both models will make their world debut in October at the Paris Motor Show.
The Laguna Coupe will most probably be offered with 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol and diesel engines generating between 140 and 201 Hp along with a top-notch 3.5-liter V6 unit.
The new Megane lets go of the current version’s weirdly styled arse for a more subtle design. However -no thanks to the heavy camouflage, that’s about all we can comment on Renault’s VW Golf adversary.
