Laguna III X91 Facelifted
The Renault Laguna III was officially announced in a press release on June 4, 2007. The car was unveiled to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, and it went on sale in October 2007. The car comes as a 5 door liftback, as a 5 door estate and a 3 door coupé. This third generation is based on the platform D, shared with the Nissan Altima, the Nissan Teana, and the Nissan Murano.
The Laguna III was the first car to have gone through the Aubevoye Technical Centre's Electro-Magnetic Compatibility unit, in the course of its development.
It was first presented as a concept car, at the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show, which followed some styling cues of the previous Renault Fluence concept car. The production version was revealed at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival, coinciding with the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix to take the wraps off. The brand new V6 dCi engine delivers 235 hp (173 kW), while the new 3.5 litre petrol powered V6 offers 240 hp (175 kW). The Laguna Coupé later appeared before the general public at the Paris Motor Show in October 2008.
