More ooh-la-la

2010-04-17 13:51

FRENCH car manufacturer Renault is ­almost like the Easter bunny, with loads of eggs in the basket to choose from.

Renault has added yet another new model to its stable in the form of the Laguna Coupé.

The car has new design lines like the drooping bonnet and wide grille.

The front light clusters look ­different to other models and even the rear light ­clusters have a slim, high-tech look.

This two-door flagship coupé – whose twin ­exhausts add to its sleek and sporty look – oozes sex appeal.

The car has ­elegant styling, with sharp lines. It has a wide mesh grille under the bonnet which gives the front fenders a wider stance and emphasises the bold, 18-inch alloy wheels which sit snug behind them.

Underneath the bonnet lies a ­3.5-litre V6 engine paired with a ­six-speed automatic gearbox.

It delivers 175kW of power and torque as lovely as its looks, with 330Nm.

Sound enthusiasts will enjoy the Laguna’s 10-speaker Bose sound ­system with six-channel ­personalised equaliser.

Other technology includes the Bluetooth telephone system ­combined with audio streaming and voice recognition functions.

There is also the fully integrated Carminat TomTom satellite navigation ­system, which is built into the large in-dash multimedia screen and pro­vides all the functions of a high-end ­navigation system including ­precise colour maps, voice ­guidance, traffic information and ­alternative routes.

There are eight standard air bags and new double side-impact sensors.

The coupé also features a 4Control chassis with four-wheel steering, anti-lock brake system with electronic brake-force distribution and electronic brake assist.

It also comes standard with an ­advanced electronic stability ­control system.
