Renault UK Announces Laguna Coupe Pricing
Following its world show debut in Paris earlier this month, the new Laguna Coupe will be available for order in the UK from mid-November with first deliveries expected to arrive in dealerships in January 2009. The Laguna Coupe that launches with seven versions spread across two trim levels (Coupe and Coupe GT) is priced from £20,995 to £27,995. At launch, four engines will be available, evenly split between petrol and diesel: 2.0-liter Turbo 205HP and 3.5-liter V6 240HP, followed by the 2.0-liter dCi 150JP and 2.0-liter dCi 180HP.
According to Renault, at £22,345, the entry-level petrol, Coupé 2.0 Turbo 205HP undercuts its equivalent BMW rival, the 325i SE Coupe, by a significant £6,805 at list price, even without taking into account its additional £1,000 worth of standard equipment.
The basic trim level's standard features include an Arkamys 3D Sound 140W audio system with MP3 CD reader and Bluetooth, 18-inch 'Interlagos' alloy wheels, eight airbags, automatic lights and wipers, dual zone climate control, electric heated door mirrors, MP3 player connection, rear parking sensors, Super Fold rear seat system, twin chrome exhausts (except 2.0 dCi 150 manual) and xenon headlights.
The range-topping Coupe GT benefits additionally from Renault's 4Control chassis, first seen on GT versions of New Laguna Hatch and Sport Tourer, as well as from the 18-inch 'Celsium' alloy wheels, cruise control, automatic parking brake, electrochrome rear view mirror, electrically heated and folding door mirrors, GT leather steering wheel, leather upholstery (choice of beige, dark carbon, light grey or 'camel'), Renault Hands Free keycard and speed limiter.
