Next generation Renault Laguna will only come to the UK if it breaks with tradition
20 December 2011

The Renault Laguna will only return to the UK if the next generation model, due in around three years time, is radically different from the current car.

A decision on the styling direction of the new Laguna is due to be taken in the next three months, according to Renault UK boss Thierry Sybord, who favours switching Renault's family sized car to a crossover format.

"If the next-generation Laguna is the same as the current one, then there’s no way it will be a success in the UK," he said. ‘We are still thinking of a new kind of car, possibly a crossover.’

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's 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

    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
