Laguna GT is likely to return to UK after being cancelled

Renault is likely to bring back the Laguna GT to British showrooms. The short-lived 203bhp Laguna GT disapeared from Renault’s UK line-up in the spring, although it is still sold in continental Europe.

A source at the car maker told Autocar that Renault UK is keen to bring back the Laguna GT to Britain as soon as possible.

The 4 Control four-wheel steering system in the Laguna GT was even developed by Renaultsport, although a Renaultsport-badged version is unlikely.

Re: Renaultsport Laguna considered

I think they should just call it a day with the Laguna. It's never gonna sell in its current guise, however much they try and tweak it. They need a totally fresh concept for a mid range car cos the Laguna and its sales died years ago.To me the car looks about 8 yrs old and they already gave it a facelift not long back.

Completely pointless decision and a completely pointless car.

Back in the 80s and 90s nearly all mid range saloons and hatches were topped off by a decent sporty version, some being much better than others. Today almost none are, and the likes of the VXR Insignia is far too expensive. If Renault can get this right it might prompt more makers to offer such things which would only be a good thing.

However the Laguna isnt a great place to start, but i wouldnt bet against it being a good drive if they make one, given what they have done with the Megan etc. And there is no doubt that the laguna could do with a 'halo' model.

I suspect the 250 BHP 2.0 turbo from the Megan could be quick enough to be entertaining even in a Laguna, but the thing that really makes a car good to drive is the suspension and stearing, and Renault appear pretty good at getting the best out of these with the Megan. So come on Renault, give it a go.
