New Renault Laguna was to deliver real driving Its benchmark dynamics benefit an impressively efficient chassis is powered by a broad choice of capable, fuel-efficient powerplants.

versions of New Renault Laguna with the 4Control chassis and steering boast exceptional performance for even greater safety and efficiency. Now associated the dCi 130, dCi 150 and dCi 175 (with automatic core-range engines, this Renault innovation is today for even more motorists to


New Renault road holding, travelling and driving pleasure benefits Renault#8217;s extensive engineering in each of these fields.


For enhanced driving along twisty roads, the precision of New Renault Laguna from closer-ratio steering and a steering column. Thanks to a of 16:1 (i.e. a 16-degree of the steering wheel turns the by one degree), manoeuvring is facilitated and the handling is nimbler.

The stiffer and the systematic elimination of play that owners benefit a more direct sensation and precise feedback from the thanks to a shorter response between the moment an instruction is via the steering wheel and the moment the car Versions equipped with the most powerful engines T 170 and dCi 180) are equipped with power steering.

The other feature an active electric unit which finely the degree of power assistance as a of the rate of the electric pump, itself is dictated by the driving This rate depends on the and required level of power (speed, steering wheel a solution which benefits consumption by electrically optimising the of the pump.

A responsive chassis

New chassis delivers exceptional performance, providing drivers a greater sense of enjoyment at the without detracting from the performance of the suspension. Renault#8217;s paid particular attention to cornering precision and body Specific roll is an objective of a car#8217;s ability to corner and describes the angle of the body in with the road.

In the case of New that angle is 1.9 degrees for the segment = 2.2° degrees) for a acceleration value of 5m/s², a which corresponds to driving a twisty road or to taking a diameter roundabout at 60kph.

The suspension features a MacPherson-type with a 24mm-diameter antiroll while the rear suspension is on a compact, lightweight programmed-deflection H-beam incorporating an anti-roll the diameter of which varies 28.8mm to 30.5mm depending on


The handling of those of New Renault Laguna equipped the 4Control chassis with steering is as agile in built up as it is precise along twisty Even at low speeds, the system feels natural to the driver.

seen in 2008 on the range#8217;s versions (Laguna GT, then Coupé), the 4Control chassis is now with New Renault Laguna and New Renault Laguna Estate#8217;s engines, namely the dCi 130, the dCi 150 and the dCi 175 automatic transmission. The 4Control is an exclusive Renault innovation is today within reach of an higher number of Laguna

The 4Control chassis with steering delivers valuable

* More incisive handling,

* easier manoeuvring,

* Unrivalled precision which permits the to intuitively position the car on the ideal line,

* Enhanced driving enjoyment at all

* A remarkable active safety

Based on specific settings and ride-height control, the control of roll gives occupants the that the car corners perfectly Driving pleasure through the turns of a series of corners is by the absence of transient dynamic as well as by the car#8217;s precise at low steering wheel angles.

The manoeuvrability of a small city car

At of less than 60kph, the wheels turn in the opposite to the fronts, up to an angle of 3.5 degrees.

In situation, the 4Control chassis two benefits: a smaller turning for easier manoeuvring and smaller wheel angles thanks to the specially calibrated steering.

equipped with the 4Control with four-wheel steering, New Laguna#8217;s turning circle is 10 per smaller than it is with steering, i.e. just metres with 18-inch #8211; the same as a Clio! compared with 12.05 The greater the rear-wheel steering therefore, the smaller the turning This enhanced manoeuvrability is welcome in tight parking and along narrow city

Meanwhile, the cumulative effect of the and rear wheels#8217; steering means that smaller angles are needed for the same effect. Whereas it takes a wheel angle of 16 degrees to a one-degree turn of the front on New Laguna with twowheel it takes just 13.5 with the 4Control chassis. And drops to 12 degrees when the wheels are turned at the maximum angle in the opposite direction to the wheels.

Because the steering is direct, the driver doesn#8217;t to turn the steering wheel so so the impression of manoeuvrability and agility is reinforced. For any given bend therefore, the driver needs to the steering wheel less. are no trouble at all, and the car seems to effortlessly around obstacles.

At speeds, the car turns as if on rails

The 4Control with four-wheel steering contributes to safety and reinforces the sensation felt during manoeuvres. In an emergency situation, the of the rear wheels can rise to 3.5

Deployment of the ESC (Electronic Stability which is specifically calibrated to a sporty driving style, is to enable the manoeuvre to be completed swiftly. The ESC is only activated this becomes necessary, and is gradually since it is linked to the turning action.

Via the ESC/ABS unit, the control also detects asymmetrical situations and automatically adapts the turn angle to keep the car with no driver action The driver stays in control critical situations for an even reassuring ride in everyday situations.

Dynamic logic to a mechanical system

Developed by teams from Renault and Sport Technologies, the 4Control with four-wheel steering thanks to active electronic of the vehicle#8217;s dynamics.

A sensor on the column sends steering angle information via the CAN network to the control unit which is near the rear axle.

The unit also inputs speed received from the unit and tracks steering movements to detect sporty styles or avoidance situations.

All parameters are analysed to determine the rear-wheel turn angle is implemented by means of an electric located on the rear axle. digital modelling of the vehicle#8217;s allows the ideal turn-in to be constantly using information on the driver#8217;s instructions via the steering and the realtime dynamics of the car.


In addition to affordable to buy, New Renault was engineered to ensure low running Indeed, its running, servicing and costs figure amongst the in the model#8217;s segment, thanks to the dCi 110hp (81kW) and dCi 150hp engines.

New Renault Laguna is now more environmentally friendly before thanks to an average gain of 0.5 litres/100km across the

The dCi engines: outstanding enjoyment, and economy

Versions of New Renault equipped with the dCi 110hp engine benefit from low emissions for a saloon of this and class. Its score of 120g of is equivalent to combined cycle consumption of 4.7 litres/100km and represents a saving over Laguna III at the of its launch in 2007. Even so, versions combine the characteristics of a modern touring car (240Nm of available from 2,000rpm) contained overall running making it perfectly suited to drivers.

Versions powered by the M9R deliver superior performance and pleasure, and are available in a choice of power outputs: 130hp, 175hp (mated to automatic and 180hp (96kW, 110kW, and 131kW respectively). These are particularly ideally matched to the of New Laguna#8217;s chassis. Peak stands at between 320Nm and and all four engines accelerate and smoothly up to 5,200rpm.

Depending on fuel consumption ranges 5.2 to 5.7 litres/100km (6.2 litres/100km automatic transmission). Low CO2 emissions of 136 and 163g/km ensure that one of these engines is respectful of the for its specification and for the segment.

* reduced engine noise, at low speeds,

* isolation from noise,

* and, above reduced wind noise.

The comfort performance of the diesel is equivalent to that of the petrol thanks notably to the inherent of the powerplants themselves.

Work has gone into increasing travel, including innovative such as the fixation between the top of the casing and the battery support enables the latter to serve as an damper (patented).

New Renault aerodynamics were carefully at a very early stage of the design. The windscreen wipers are beneath the bonnet line, the special design of the exterior housings and windscreen pillars turbulence and consequently wind

Driving comfort

A long of equipment has been included to the strain out of driving:

* Front and parking proximity sensors, the zone immediately in front of or the car now shown on the main dashboard in addition to the audible warning,

* Third-generation Renault hands-free incorporating the control for the #8216;see you lights,

* Integrated fuel flap release to facilitate up on fuel,

* Gearshift indicator #8216;eco#8217; driving),

* Cruise with speed limiter,

* parking brake, etc


The suspension ensures a comfortable thanks to the control of vertical The combination of pressurised dampers at the and bitube rear dampers obstacles to be soaked up smoothly at speeds.

Through corners, comfort is ensured by restricting roll, while the seats are with a level of lateral that enables occupants to the car#8217;s on-road performance

Quality cabin air

The Soft-Auto-Fast for the advanced, innovative triple-action control are intuitive to use and positioned between the vents, while the automatic functions can be customized to individual requirements.

The functions of the #8216;Auto#8217; mode take inspiration from the market#8217;s systems and ensure an optimized between thermal and acoustic as well as quick start-up.

The mode favours a quieter, cocooning ambience, notably for the and front passenger.

Finally, the mode acts swiftly to up or cool the cabin in record


At the time of its launch in 2007, one of Laguna III principal objectives was to Renault amongst the industry#8217;s in terms of product and service

Today, while the results of surveys have yet to be published, all point to similar findings. independent surveys that been published (JD Power, etc.) and the results of in-house and tests in the specialist media that Laguna has succeeded in a TOP3 ranking.

Renault has ensured that uncompromising has become a deeplyrooted part of DNA, at every phase of its life cycle, from design and production, to sales and service.

The efforts made by on the quality front over years have been of to all the group#8217;s models, with new vehicle proving more than its predecessor.


New Renault Laguna enables all to enjoy a relaxing drive to the models#8217; superior comfort and for its class (36 EuroNCAP points a possible 37).

When it to protecting occupants, Laguna from all the latest innovations, as as from Renault#8217;s extensive, knowhow in the field of real-world research.

A leader in the realm of safety#8230;

New Renault Laguna from Renault#8217;s acclaimed in the fields of both active and safety. In addition to the remarkable of its chassis, the model delivers braking performance for its class, and after repeated stopping (a distance of barely 40 metres with 16-inch wheels after braking 10 times in succession from 100kph to

#8230;a well as in the of passive safety

The different safety solutions developed by are based on the lessons taught by into real-life accident and the real-world behaviour of motorists are used to provide a more and more efficient approach to safety.

To guarantee even protection, the electronics of New Renault have been designed to that the latest-generation protection are triggered sooner.

A three-way covers all the possible configurations to their performance in different situations (complex front impact from the rear or Impact from the side is a cause of fatal injuries the flanks of a car traditionally offer protection. However, specific in this area has produced results.

To detect and respond to situations up to twice as quickly, New Laguna benefits from a system that comprises side-impact sensors located in the doors and B-pillars. A specific adapts the response time to the force and triggers the release of the new dual-chamber, double-pressure lateral airbags.

Legislation dictates the system must be effective up to but the protection afforded by New Renault is effective up to 70kph. This set-up is founded on a system of six or eight airbags (including the rear thorax airbags) all around occupants. The front belt double pretensioners now act on extremities of the belt (outer lap and reel).

This solution, with an anti-submarining airbag in the seat cushion, ensures occupants are held firmly in seat in a head-on impact and them from sliding the lap strap of the seat belt. The central buckle is designed to fastening. The three-point seat themselves are equipped with limiters, and New Renault Laguna with a seat belt for all five seats, as well as seat belt warnings for the occupants.

Close attention has paid, too, at the seat-frames for even greater efficiency and Despite the slimmer front backs, the passengers#8217; backs can freely into the seat, protection of the neck in the case of impact is enhanced thanks to headrests into which the rods are incorporated.
