I think the hatch looks odd, rather disproportionate and too evolutionary. The front end is hideous while the back is bulky and ungainly. The GrandTour looks a lot better. The interior is nice, though in some color combos there seem to be too many acres of dark plastics out there. The beige version with wood looks quite upmarket. Overall, I'd say it's not the revolutionary ultra cool Laguna I've been waiting for. It's a huge dissapointment for me.
I really, really like this 2008 Laguna. The front is simple and clean and those headlamps are very attractive. The rear of the sedan/hatch is again a simple and clean design. The wagon/touring version is very cool and elegant. The interior is very nice and upmarket and still keeps the Renault quirkiness (if that is even a word lol). Well Done Renault!!
I like the rear end of a SW version! and interior too.... it looks well buildt and from nice materials....
for the rest, I'll have to wait to see it on street. then I'll know if I like it or not. but regardles of that like/don't like verdict I can say that it packs a lot more of caracter than the current one! and that's good!
The wagon is definitely the better looking of the two, but a little less French charm in the headlights would help them both. The rear of the sedan has an awkward C pillar but no less so than the Jettas we have seen over the years. I'd prefer this styling to the current Nissan Maxima in a heartbeat. That's in spite of the fact that I don't think the Laguna is stunningly gorgeous.
