2009 Renault Laguna Coupe Concept Car

The new Renault Laguna Coupe will be competing against the CLS and the all new VW Passat CC, but with just two doors. Renault seems to be focussing on rear passenger space and boot capacity.

We expect the usual Renault engines to drive the new coupe, but rumours suggest that the 3.0 liter V6 dCI engine (230 to 250 hp) from the concep might just be added to the range. We expect the Renault Laguna Coupe in showrooms sometime in 2009.

Renault will unveil its Laguna Coupe Concept at next week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. Based on the Laguna sedan–set to be launched next month–the coupe will be the first of several variants of the car. The Laguna Coupe Concept uses many of the same design cues as Renault’s Fluence concept but the Coupe Concept appears to be much closer to a production version of the car.

Although the interior will likely be revised for production, the exterior is expected to remain virtually unchanged for the road-going version. The concept features frameless windows, black powder-coated wheels, a rear diffuser and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Renault has yet to reveal any details about the coupe’s available power plants, although engine choices are expected to mirror that offered in the sedan. The Laguna sedan is available with gasoline and diesel four-cylinders, ranging from a 112 horsepower 1.6 liter to a 2.0 liter with 204 horsepower.

The launch of the third-generation Laguna creeps ever closer and with less than a week before the Frankfurt Show reveals the cars supposed to have been kept under wraps until their official unveiling, we bring you yet another glorious leak. The Laguna saloon and estate models make their world premiere at Frankfurt next week but these photos of its fellow Renault stand star have surfaced ahead of its debut, revealing Renault’s Laguna Coupe Concept. Essentially a near-production version of the Laguna Coupe, the new car is speculated to enter the market in the second half of 2008.

Renault have made it no secret that the new-generation Laguna is firmly footing itself in a new league of design and build quality, and the Coupe is sure to reaffirm this new direction. Inspired perhaps by the 2004 Fluence Concept, the Coupe Concept further enhances the lines of the Laguna, making them more elongated and mated to the car’s external features. New lights front and rear may stay for production to distance slightly from saloon and estate models, signalling a shift upmarket. The concept car’s interior is an aesthetically-pleasing two-tonal delight, however the transplant of the new Laguna’s interior into the Coupe is what will see production.

Based, naturally, on the new Laguna platform, the Laguna Coupe Concept is likely to be powered by an economical, green engine – perhaps even a hybrid system – in line with a number of unveilings featuring greener drive trains. In production form, expect a more limited range of engines than the saloon and estate ranges, with the inclusion of 2.0-litre diesel and petrol 4-cylinder powerplants being likely. A range-topping 3.5-liter V6 model can also be expected, with all models offering the choice of a six-speed manual or automatic gearbox.
