It seems that Renault just can’t stop bombarding us with special edition versions of its popular models. The reason for this is that it is easier (and more cost-effective) for the car maker to simply pre-build a given number of vehicles stuffed with a given number of optional equipment.
We have seen lots of them last year and now are offered with a special edition Renault Laguna based on the Laguna Expression trim.
The complete Renault Laguna Impulsion Special Edition package will give you about a five per cent price advantage over the basic model with a similar set of optional equipment.
The cars come in both hatchback and estate (wagon, that’s it) versions and are offered in eleven different body colors. Their sporty look is accented with 16-inch Lazuli alloys. The Estate version also features roof bars in nice satin finish.
The list of standard equipment includes the Rear Parking Assist, a Hands Free Card, cruise control-speed limiter and bi-zone regulated air conditioning, and the Vision Pack, which includes heated windscreen, automatic window wiper, additional headlamps and automatic lights activation.
All in all, these standard features will save you about €1,860 as compared to the Laguna Expression model.
The entry level model is equipped with a 1.6-liter 16-valve engine, mated to a manual gearbox and producing up to 115 horsepower and starts at €23,300.
The Laguna Impulsion Estate will cost you €1000 more.
