Renault Laguna news - Frankfurt show: Renault Laguna Coupe - 2007

Read more on:

The new Laguna looks every bit as anonymous as we
feared it would on the Renault stand at Frankfurt (especially with the bonkers Kangoo concept just a few feet away). But all is not lost, because alongside the sadly
uninspired hatch and estate is this, the Laguna Coupe concept. 

Renault reckons
the coupe will make production largely unchanged and, though we’d imagine that
it’ll at least acquire a pair of door handles by the time it reaches the road,
we’d be very happy if it did. 

According to
the designers, the Laguna coupe is a conscious move away from the jagged
styling of the Megane - an attempt to create a car with an air of solidity and
 quality. 

And we reckon
they’ve hit that one right on the head. With its TT-style roofline and
pronounced swage line (which neatly runs into the top of the boot lid at the
rear of the coupe), the concept turns the staid, dull Laguna into something
pretty damn handsome.

 Of course,
there are a few over-the-top concept touches - the skinny bucket seats will be
replaced by something more practical in the production version, while there’s
an enormous central display console that we’d hope would stay but obviously
 won’t. 

Aside from
that, though, the Laguna coupe looks eminently feasible. Here’s hoping it gets
made sooner rather than later.
