2013 Renault Laguna revealed with minor changes

 2013 Renault Laguna revealed with minor changes
2013 Renault Laguna 15.4.2013

Features the new R-Link infotainment system

Renault has taken the wraps off the 2013 Laguna lineup.

Looking modestly revised, the sedan and estate adopt a new front end with LED daytime running lights. The models can also be equipped with restyled 16-inch aluminum wheels.

Interior changes are limited but include an R-Link infotainment system with a seven-inch touch screen display. Bose variants also gain updated upholstery, gloss black trim and exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels.

Engine options carryover but certain powerplants can be connected to a new dual-clutch EDC transmission. When connected to the 1.5 dCi 110 engine, the Laguna can average 4.3 L/100km (54.7 mpg US / 65.6 mpg UK) with CO2 emissions as low as 113 g/km.

The Laguna is also available with a new "4Control chassis" system. It's essentially a four-wheel steering system that promises to deliver "dynamic handling, greater maneuverability and unmatched steering precision."

The 2013 Laguna lineup will go on sale in Europe later this month.

Renault Laguna Collection 2013: the best of automotive technology for maximum driving enjoyment

Renault has brought changes to its Laguna range which, more than ever, delivers the best of automotive technology for maximum travelling comfort and driving pleasure.

  • Renault Laguna Collection 2013 and Renault Laguna Estate Collection 2013 boast new, more dynamic front-end styling, including LED daytime running lights.
  • Automatic dual clutch EDC transmission is now available across the Laguna Collection 2013 range.
  • The Laguna, Laguna Estate and Laguna Coupé Collection 2013 catalogues feature a broad choice of particularly fuel-efficient powerplants. Available diesel engines are the 1.5 dCi 110 (4.2 litres/100km*), the Energy 2.0 dCi 130 or 150 (4.5 litres/100km*), the dCi 110 with automatic dual clutch EDC transmission (4.3 litres/100km*) and the 2.0 dCi 175 with automatic transmission. The list also features the 2.0 16V petrol engine.
  • Advanced technology for the Laguna line-up: the connected, in-dash multimedia Renault R-Link tablet, outstanding chassis performance thanks to 4Control technology and tailor-engineered Bose® audio.
  • Order books for Renault Laguna Collection 2013 will open across Europe at the end of April.

Dynamic styling in tune with its time

Instead of the former standard fog lights, Renault Laguna Collection 2013 and Laguna Estate Collection 2013 now feature LED daytime running lights which remain switched on in the dark – although dimmer – to underpin the range’s modernity and dynamism, day and night.
New 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels which further emphasise Laguna Collection 2013’s dynamic stance are also available.

The premium appeal of the Bose® equipment level has been reaffirmed thanks to new upholstery, new specific 17-inch wheels and a gloss black radio fascia.

Frugal, environmentally respectful engines for even lower running costs

Automatic dual clutch EDC transmission is now available across the Laguna range. Mated to the 1.5 dCi 110 engine, it returns fuel consumption of just 4.3 litres/100km*, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 113g/km* for Laguna and Laguna Coupé, and 115g/km* in the case of Laguna Estate, which makes Laguna Collection 2013 one of the most efficient cars in its class in terms of low CO2 emissions.
Under the bonnet of Laguna Collection 2013, the 1.5 dCi 110 diesel engine consumes just 4.2 litres/100km*, which equates to CO2 emissions of 109g/km* for Laguna and Laguna Coupé, and 112g/km* for Laguna Estate.

The Energy 2.0 dCi engine is available in 130hp, 150hp or 175hp form for Laguna and Laguna Estate Collection 2013. Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, it uses just 4.5 litres of fuel per 100km* and emits only 118g of CO2/km* and 120g/km* in the cases of Laguna and Laguna Estate respectively. Mated to six-speed automatic transmission, the 2.0 dCi 175 engine emits 150g of CO2/km* on Laguna, Laguna Estate and Laguna Coupé Collection 2013, equivalent to fuel consumption of 5.7 litres/100km*.

The petrol engines available for Laguna and Laguna Estate Collection 2013 are the 2.0 16V, with a manual six-speed gearbox, and the TCe 180 mated to six-speed automatic transmission.

As exclusive as ever, Renault Laguna Coupé Collection 2013 can be specified with a 240-horsepower diesel V6 dCi. This engine drives through six-speed automatic transmission (185g of CO2/km* and fuel consumption of 7.1 litres/100km*). Laguna Coupé Collection 2013 can also be ordered with the TCe 180 petrol engine and six-speed automatic transmission, or with the Energy 2.0 dCi 150 and 175 diesel powerplants. The 175hp variant of this engine comes with six-speed automatic transmission.

The best of automotive technology for the entire Laguna family: Renault R-Link, Bose® sound and the exceptional 4Control chassis
Laguna Collection 2013 is available with the new, connected Renault R-Link multimedia system incorporating the navigation system, radio, Bluetooth® telephony and audio streaming of music stored on portable devices. Renault R-Link also fulfils a number of vehicle-related functions, while a wide selection of applications can be downloaded directly to the system. Renault R-Link’s is controlled via the intuitive, user-friendly, seven-inch (18cm) touch screen display. Alternatively, the driver can use voice commands or the controls situated near the steering wheel.

Inside Laguna Collection 2013, the driver and passengers can enjoy exceptional audio quality thanks to the premium, tailor-engineered Bose® system which delivers exceptional sound reproduction. The Bose® system available for Renault Laguna Collection 2013 comprises 10 loudspeakers and a digital amplifier which incorporates the Bose® signal processor and individualised six-channel equaliser. A centrally-positioned loudspeaker built into the dashboard allows occupants to benefit from crystal clear, perfectly balanced sound, irrespective of whether they are sat on the right- or left-hand side of the car. The rear left wheel-well houses a bass speaker which reproduces rich, realistic bass frequencies throughout the cabin.

For genuine travelling pleasure and comfort, certain versions of Laguna Collection 2013 can be specified with the 4Control chassis. The 4Control system incorporates four-wheel steering and makes exceptional chassis performance an affordable reality for a high number of motorists. Benefits include even more incisive dynamic handling, greater manoeuvrability and unmatched steering precision, which intuitively maintains the car on the ideal cornering line, as well as driving enjoyment at all speeds and a remarkably high level of active safety.

For versions of Laguna Collection 2013 equipped with 4Control technology and R-Link, a specific ‘4Control Monitor’ application will become available at a later date. It will provide drivers with a real-time visual overview of the 4Control system’s contribution to Laguna’s dynamic performance.

The 4Control chassis is available for those versions of the car powered by the Energy 2.0 dCi 130, Energy 2.0 dCi 150, Energy 2.0 dCi 175, TCe 180 or V6 dCi engines.

Quality, a fundamental feature of the Laguna Collection 2013 range

In addition to its dynamics (which are even further perfected by the 4Control chassis), Laguna III is widely acclaimed for its build quality, reliability and top level safety credentials.
At the time of Laguna III’s launch in 2007, one of the chief objectives for the model was to reposition Renault among the very best car manufacturers in terms of product and service Quality. Independent and in-house surveys both confirm that this mission has been fulfilled.

Renault Laguna Collection 2013 will go on sale in Europe from the middle of June.
