The next generation Renault Laguna estate has been spied testing in France, courtesy of Blog Automobile. Apparently, the 2016 Renault Laguna Estate will dump the dull, C-shaped taillamps for sportier, horizontally-shaped rectangular taillamps that extend inwards on the tailgate and feature LEDs.
The spyshots also reveal the test mule’s interior which seems close to the production-spec vehicle. The cabin is largely derived from that of the Espace. The new three spoke steering wheel, instrument panel, centre console and R-Link replacing infotainment system with vertical touchscreen display are seemingly from the crossover MPV.
The 2016 Laguna, as reported earlier, will replace the current generation Laguna and Latitude. It will be based on a version of the Renault Nissan Alliance’s CMF (Common Module Family) platform – CMF-C. This platform, among other benefits, will allow for development cost reduction by 30% and weight reduction of 100 kg.
The hatchback version will debut at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA 2015) in September, and is expected to be followed by estate version. The coupe version is likely to be dropped due to the slump in the segment.
