Renault Laguna Coupe Official Pictures Break Cover
The first images of Renault’s mid-size Laguna Coupe have been leaked into the net prior to the coupe’s official debut that was scheduled to happen tomorrow afternoon (Saturday May 24) at the Cannes film festival. As anticipated, Renault’s designers didn’t stray too far away from last year’s Laguna Coupe Concept with the overall styling bringing to mind a cross between an Aston Martin and a Ford Cougar Coupe.
As its name clearly suggests, Renault’s new coupe is based on the new Laguna 5door hatch, but it’s a tad shorter at 4.64m long, wider and of course, lower. The Coupe will come equipped the existing 2.0-liter engine range from the Laguna hatch in addition to a new 235Hp 3.0-liter V6 diesel and a 240Hp 3.5-liter V6 petrol unit. The Laguna Coupe is expected to go on sale in Europe during the fourth quarter of the year.
