It's dubbed a concept, but we're hoping the production car will look this good
7 September 2007

These are the first pictures of the sleek new Renault Laguna Coupe Concept that’s due to be revealed at next week’s Frankfurt motor show next week.Though Renault calls it a concept, expect the production car very much top follow the same elegant look, one that takes Renault firmly upmarket.But while we expect the production coupe to look very similar to the concept from the outside, the cabin is likely to be borrowed largely wholesale from the new hatchback and estate. That’s no bad thing –the new Laguna’s interior has left us impressed, with its high-quality feel and look.The coupe will most likely have a narrower engine line-up than the hatchback and estate. A 3.5-litre V6 petrol will top the range, but a 170bhp 2.0-litre four-pot and 2.0-litre turbodiesel are likely. There will be a choice of six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes.The new Coupe joins the Laguna line-up in the second half of 2008.Come back to next week for all the news from Frankfurt, including more on the Laguna Coupe.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross

    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
